There is limited availability of this title. Please enquire before placing your order.

A meditation on the nature of time and the importance of human relationships, by acclaimed avant-garde theatre director André Gregory.

Bone Songs is a kaleidoscopic whirlwind of stories, soliloquies, scenes and songs. Five characters on a vertiginous descent into a twilight zone: a young couple on a freezing honeymoon in the icy wastes of Antarctica; an old widower crazed with grief; a middle-aged couple oppressed by a frozen marriage. And then the ice begins to melt...

André Gregory is a theatre director, filmmaker and writer. He collaborated with Wallace Shawn and Louis Malle on the legendary My Dinner with Andre and Vanya on 42nd Street. This is his first play.

Press Quotes

'Bone Songs evokes Rumi, Thornton Wilder and James Joyce without ever seeming referential. It is elegiac, furious and rhapsodic by turns - true theatrical poetry'
