Midnight Train to Marrakech
After a knock on the door by a mysterious new neighbor, a lonely woman’s chase with time to save the world begins. She’s launched into an unexpected journey filled with events, places and characters that seem to be pulled straight out of the old Orson Welles and Alfred Hitchcock movies she obsessively ploughs through in her lonely everyday life.
This show is a tribute to the endless possibilities of imagination, theatre magic and dreams. From the creators of the critically acclaimed production of Shaun Tan’s The Arrival comes a new imaginative piece that seamlessly ties in classic scenes from old movies with the common thread of the new story. Taking the audience from one exotic place to the other- by train, mysterious doors, mixed-up identities and pure theatre magic- to finally end up at the mythical city of Marrakech.
