Multi award-winning Theatre Ad Infinitum return with their hit show. Experience a journey of life, death and enduring love. After his wife passes away, William escapes to a paradise of fantasy and past memories, a place far from the realty of his grief. Returning from beyond the grave, Rose revisits her widowed companion to perform one last act of love: to help him let go. A poignant, life-affirming tale without words.

Using a live accordion accompaniment, this exquisite piece of mask and movement theatre was a multi-award winning, critically acclaimed sell-out at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2011 and has since toured to over 20 countries around the world, and picked up 9 awards.

Theatre Ad Infinitum is a multi-award-winning international company based in Bristol, creating shape-shifting socio-political theatre to provoke, move and inspire.
