Captioned performance.

“He didn’t respond, he held his breath, moved the sofa away from the wall, lay down in the gap made between, and hid. And when they went, he poked his fingers out the letterbox. Stretched them wide.

She’s standing in what used to be her bedroom. She’s come back to reclaim what she buried. The car waits outside.

After multi award-winning Nothing and Some People Talk About Violence, Barrel Organ return with their third show. Anyone’s Guess How We Got Here is a road-trip. A haunted-house. A bedtime story. A photo-album. An ‘80s fantasy film. A demolition project. A riot.

“Unsettling and intriguingly disruptive” -★★★★ Natasha Tripney, The Stage

“Gripping… An inventive and unnerving hour that counts the cost of debt” -★★★★ Matt Trueman, What’s On Stage

“This young company are the future” – The Guardian

Commissioned by and developed at Camden People’s Theatre, with support from Manchester Royal Exchange and Arts Council England.
