Vanishing Point: Interiors

London International Mime Festival

People dancing inside a living room set

Mysteries unfurl beyond the stage in this hypnotic and powerfully intense drama from one of Scotland’s foremost theatre companies.

Behind a window, in a cosy room, a group of friends gather for a meal. The lamps are on, everyone is happy. Talk begins and stories unfold around the table. There is laughing, flirting, joking, eating and dancing. But sadness soon threads its way through the occasion, secrets emerge and lies are exposed. Outside someone is watching.

Vanishing Point are celebrated for their distinctive and visionary work. This internationally acclaimed production is inspired by Nobel Prize winner Maurice Maeterlinck’s classic play, Interior.

‘A beguiling piece of theatre that is sad, funny and heartbreakingly humane.‘
The Guardian
‘One of the most remarkable pieces of drama to emerge from these climes for an age, and which is in turns hilarious, mesmeric and heartrendingly poignant.‘
The Herald
‘Mesmerising and reminiscent of Chekhov’s short stories at their best.‘
