Produced and presented by Wretched Strangers
A mining town without a mine. Four strangers have lost everything that they thought they were secure of. At night they walk the abandoned pit looking for answers to their questions, and instead they find:
Violet. Violet is the most wonderful, kind and understanding answer that any of them could have possibly dreamed of – and she doesn’t even have to say a word.
Five strangers, four voices. Earthbound by Carole Frechette tells the story of extraordinary, ethereal Violet and how she came to be in this deserted mine. Or maybe, it actually tells four completely different stories. A tale filled with dark humour and tenderness, Earthbound is a timely and strange tragedy for ordinary folks.
Earthbound, written by Quebecois playwright Carole Frechette, is making its UK and English language premiere at the Cockpit as part of Camden Fringe.
Directed by Sarah Teale
Starring Paloma Jacob-Duvernet, Massimo Guasti, Piotr Mirowski, Mylene Tissi and Camille Wilhelm
