"The Queen has no hour for love. Time passes, and events crowd upon her. Into her shell, an empty, glistening husk, she must give up all that a woman holds dear."
With Jeanette Cronin as Queen Bette

Presented by the Old 505 Theatre Co
A shopping list disguised as a love note. The camera records. The dog eaters are knocking at the door. No one wants to be watched and yet....
In the very near future, a trio of perfectly ordinary misfits navigate a few days, safe in the knowledge that the front is far from here, their front door is closed,
there is an answer for everything and they want for nothing. Basically. But when the changes begin and the world shifts, the same old questions suddenly have
wildly different answers. Following on from a work in progress showing in 2014, Old 505 Theatre Co complete their latest theatrical invention.
Using classic and contemporary sources and a desire to explore big ideas in small spaces resulting in a work that is physical, smart and engaging.
Created and performed by: Gareth Boylan, Michael Cullen, Kerri Glasscock and Michael Pigott
