World premiered at the 2013 Edinburgh International Festival

‘Silence in the house, not a sound, only the fire, no flames now, embers. Embers.’

Henry sits on a beach, recalling stories and memories from his life. Tormented by his father’s suicide, his own dysfunctional family and his failure as a writer, hallucinations and reality merge as he attempts to stoke the fire of his creativity.

From the company that brought you ‘All That Fall’ in the 2012 Happy Days Festival, ‘Embers’ takes us on a journey into the haphazard world of Henry’s imagination, a world of ever-shifting mental leaps, ruminations and ambiguities. Was Henry’s father washed out to sea whilst taking his evening swim, or did he commit suicide?
‘We never found your body, you know…’

“A marriage of theatre and installation that seems to capture the hard, loving and implacable soul of the work, while giving it a new theatrical life” The Scotsman
