‘A piece of eccentric, comic storytelling on the surface, a serious piece of theatremaking underneath.’
★★★★★ Stage

Wilting in Reverse is a play about a play about a life in reverse, set in the year 2085.

Stuart Bowden, the internationally acclaimed maker of Before UsShe Was Probably Not a Robot and The Beast, offers up his unique style of DIY theatre blending playful storytelling, sharply crafted writing, physical comedy, and immersive, lo-fi music performed live.

This is the fifth in a series of this master theatremaker’s solo works and is a strangely compelling story with a space colony, live music, vigorous dance moves, understandable words, and quite a bit of profound – probably life-changing – body movement.

Produced by Stephanie Brotchie for Don't Be Lonely
