“An incredible explosion of talent with two of the best actresses I have seen in a long time.” SPYMONKEY
You and Me
You and Me is a bitter-sweet physical comedy for everyone who is a day older than yesterday!
Two elderly sisters in a foreign land live against the backdrop of a battered rug and a mountain of mysterious boxes. They share the intimacy of a life lived together – careering between genuine affection and irritated annoyance. The pair shifts between hilarious defamation, tender reminiscing and pure madness. But amidst an ever-changing reality, is this behaviour just eccentricity or something more destructive?
You and Me is a touching story with sparkling dialogue and witty observations, that explores old age with humour, imagination and tenderness.
Written and translated by Roger Simeon
Adapted and directed by Bryony Shanahan
With Mercè Ribot and Patricia Rodríguez

"impeccably-timed physical theatre" THE STAGE
"It utterly fills you up, this piece – the power of the performances, the richness of the language – that there’s a fear that it will simply peter out, like a life drifting towards the inevitable, but it ends as triumphantly as it starts, in eccentricity and voices in the darkness" EXEUNT
