Tues to Sat only

London. Tel-Aviv. Paris. Baghdad. English. Hebrew. French. Arabic. Two writers. Two generations. Searching for home.

This innovative and beautiful show invites the audience on a breathtaking journey into the past, present and future. Fusing new writing, movement, live music and loop pedalled sound to create a unique tapestry of fragmented memories – remembered, forgotten and rediscovered again, JERICHO’S ROSE empowers a stronger dialogue around the subjects of both immigration and dementia.

JERICHO’S ROSE explores the experience of displacement from a dual perspective, a grandfather struggling with Alzheimer’s and an artist struggling to stay in the UK. What happens when neither can remember where they belong?

Althea Theatre return to London with a brand new show, following the success of Off West End award-nominated One Last Thing (For Now) in 2017. An international theatre ensemble of British and non-British actors and theatre makers, Althea Theatre explore international and local viewpoints, creating new work to challenge issues prevalent to European society today. Previous shows have toured around the UK, Europe, the Middle East, Mexico and America, including a sold-out award-winning run at the San Diego Fringe in 2017 (Outstanding Site Specific Show).

Box Office opens at 7.00pm for cash sales and collection of pre-booked tickets. The performance lasts 75 minutes without interval. No re-admittance once the performance has commenced.
