Turn Point Theatre brings a brand-new show about grief, fertility and the power of storytelling.

“We are all just an assortment of stories. Lies and truths all muddled by our own narrative.”

Young couple, Jack and Ellie were trying to have a family. Then after the sudden loss of their child, they both start to struggle coping with reality.

While one hides away in a dilapidated caravan, escaping to wondrous, childish adventures through their imagination, the other tries to forget the painful event and move on with their day to day life.

Unable to heal separately, they both come together to drink Earl Grey tea, argue over biscuits and tell each other magnificent stories, as bittersweet escapism from their mourning. But as they tell these stories of battling massive, slender dark monsters with many claws, observing a beautiful winged creature with golden eyes and being tickled by fast beings that can’t be seen underwater, reality drifts further from reach…

Will they spiral further into grief or can these stories somehow bring them back?

call me fury

17 Sept - 5 Oct

“The fire of fear is the only flame that burns bright.”

CALL ME FURY is about The Salem Witch Trials. Sort of. A feral scream of rage, this play is a commentary about sexual politics and feminism today – set to live folk music.
