PALMYRA is an exploration of revenge, the politics of destruction and what we consider to be barbaric, inviting people to step back from the news and look at what lies beneath, and beyond, civilization.

Following an extended, unanimously-acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe and touring Spain with Best of BE 2017, Bert & Nasi’s Total Theatre Award-winning, “weird, wonderful and strangely stressful” PALMYRA (★★★★ The Stage) returns.

"A thrilling tightrope walk of a show – tense yet cathartic, angry yet thoughtful. A five-star triumph.”
★★★★★ The To Do List
