SUMMARY

Love letters that burn, adulterous letters that stick and the last letter ever written. A madcap and moving meditation on the art of letters, from love’s lyrical outpourings to a killing in Kandahar. Playful episodes puncture one man’s story and how his life changes through the letters that he writes.

Letting Go is an inventive piece of theatre that mixes text, movement and object manipulation to create a beautifully written comi-tragedy from the writer of Vex (Half Moon and Hackney Empire Studio).

A paper man, seven actors and an envelope that leave an indelible mark

For ten years writer and director Simon Parker has been working with, and writing for, young performers and founded Bending Angels to promote their work. The company, from 14-19 years old, makes exciting text based work fusing the physical and the visual, exploring and telling stories in dark and playful ways.
