Marelle

If the journey to heaven is a game of hopscotch, with each throw of a stone the journey changes and a new story is made.

But what if the fate of this story was already determined? Then the task for each of us here on earth is simply to work out how this story goes.

Into this multiverse of possibilities, we place the fractured remnants of two families, caught in an infinite reflections of each other. 

Guided on this journey by the oceanic ruminations of Jacqueline le Poisson, and the joyful all-singing-all dancing Prawn Cocktail Chorus, the audience unpack the stories of Frank and Annie. In an evening of cabaret style theatre, the order of things is a matter of desire… all you have to do, is choose.
