    A snake will always find a way in. And he has. We’ve been sleeping so long that he’s had a feast… And this snake has been devouring them all whilst you and I are asleep in the next room. We’ve been standing on their tiny bones the entire time.

    With unseen ‘little mouths’ and the belching fumes of the local refinery as a backdrop, we find ourselves in the beguiling world of Ma and Pa who spend their time exchanging extraordinary and fantastic stories…until suddenly there is a knock at the door… / @TronTheatre
