By Philip Ridley
Directed by Paul Takacs
Amid the dreamlike wreckage of their love, a young man and woman battle one another for the future of their relationship. Through a swirling world of fragile memory, high fantasy, brutal wrath, and barbed humor they retrace the history of their love back to its beginnings.
From the playwright of Vincent River (Brits Off Broadway 2008), Tender Napalm takes an unflinching look at love's capacity to weather tragedy and survive in an age of ever-looming terror and uncertainty.
