When Alice is stolen away in the middle of the night by her mum she has no idea what is happening. Scared, confused and angry, Alice finds herself in a strange house, forbidden to leave, arguing with her mum during the day and hiding under her covers from the strange noises at night.
Told using performance, music, live animation and film, Under the Bed is a compelling new play about childhood trauma and what happens when nightmares are indistinguishable from reality.
154 Collective is an international group of theatre makers, visual artists, animators, musicians and writers who come together to tell new stories, in interesting ways, that captivate audiences. Expect stunning visuals and powerful storytelling set to an enchanting live music score.
