Directed by James Baker
A Black Toffee and Harrogate Theatre production
A bench. A vending machine. Night.
Anna is stranded. Beth came for a think. C just wants some kip. Three women meet by chance late at night. None of them really want to be there, yet none of them leave. It is a rare moment of stillness in a hectic modern world, bringing them both solace and discomfort. With only loose change, some booze and a dodgy carrot at their disposal, will any of them find their way home?
Parallel is a dark comedy drama from the makers of Hidden (✭✭✭✭ 'A true gem' Guardian) which aims to challenge our understanding of home, purpose and charity. The part that each actor will play is determined by the roll of a dice as we explore the impact of chance and choice on the outcome of our lives.
Parallel was originally presented as a piece in development under the working title of Waiting for Light by Black Toffee Theatre in association with Harrogate Theatre and is supported by Arts Council England. Black Toffee Theatre are associate artists of Harrogate Theatre.
