Past productions

Toka by Indrit Kasapi

A Theatre Passe Muraille & lemonTree creations Co-Production

Toka tells the story of siblings who wrestle with a long-standing land dispute that has resulted in generational death after death, and is threatening to come to a brutal climax. This startling work of physical theatre about modern-day blood feuds in post-Communist Albania, is delicate, evocative and heart-breaking.

This production has been postponed. Details TBC!
