Two performers, a mini trampoline and a 1000 piece puzzle.

Leah and Sophie have been together, here, for a long time. They are happy here. But there’s a problem. There’s a massive f**king problem and soon they’re going to have to talk about it.

The award-winning Antler return with a playful, intimate dissection of a relationship teetering on the edge of collapse.

Exploring the impossibility of relationships, our inability to understand one another, and the lands we isolate ourselves on, this is an absurd tragi-comedy for our times.

Antler are an associate company at the Bush. Winner of the IdeasTap Underbelly Award, winner of Pulse Festival Suitcase Prize, nominated for The Stage Best Ensemble Award, and winner of Best Short Fiction at BFI Future Film Festival, Antler have transferred shows to The Bush, Soho Theatre and toured the UK.

★★★★½ “The mood changes induced during this performance are extraordinary… A beautiful jigsaw puzzle of a play.” – The Greater Manchester Reviewer
