From the award-winning creators of Attack of the Attacking Attackers! comes a tall tale of whimsy, imagination and architectural enlightenment – boy girl wall. Using elegant and simple theatrical devices, one performer brings together a cast of animate and inanimate characters.
Thom and Alethea, two neighbours in a West End apartment block, try desperately to keep their lives from falling apart… and this is the story of the wall that stands between them, who has decided they belong together.
