The Tempest BLISS Shiver
Claustrophobia The Visitation of Mr Collioni Dr Heidegger’s Experiment
3 Greek Myths
from a Lisbon Laundry
Animal Tales The Paper Forest


Inspired by the myth of Melusine
From the playwright Hattie Naylor.

Matthew is dead. The last guest has left the wake, leaving his parents and young fiancée, Gwendolyn in the family home. No-one is sleeping; left in an uneasy limbo they try to make sense of what has happened. Will the truth come out? Has Matthew disappeared completely and why is Gwen spending so much time in the bath? A stylish, beautiful piece of theatre that shows how grief can make monsters of us all....

(Shivering is the body’s response to lower body temperature and one of the beginning symptoms of hypothermia; you should end your dive if you begin to shiver).
