Overview

1927 presents Please right back.

The new show from multi-award-winning company 1927. 

 

Combining handcrafted animation and bold storytelling, Please right back sweeps audiences in a magical, mischievous world, inspired by a true story.

Kim and Davey’s Dad, Mr E, has disappeared. When Mr E writes to his children to tell them what has happened, his imagination takes over. Reality collides with fantasy, as we travel on a fast-paced journey through his wild adventure stories.

Mr E’s letters are staged using song, dance, and absurd, subversive animations, as his stories become a kind of game between him and his children – a cathartic release in the face of distress.

Part social realism, part science fiction with a healthy dose of mischief and a dash of dystopia. Please right back is a eulogy to the power of the imagination, storytelling and make believe.

“Anyone interested in the theatre should see this company now.” The Observer

“1927 conjure a world so complete it feels as if you’ve fallen down a rabbit hole.” Guardian
