Lone Twin Theatre (GB)

Daniel Hit By A Train

09 may 2009, Teatro Out Off h 21.00

Inspired by a Victorian collection of 53 true stories about people losing their lives trying to save the life of another, Daniel Hit By A Train, between vaudeville, pantomime, farce and melodrama, tells a string of tragedies through a narrative that reveals the comic side of these heart-wrenching events. Compassion and respect for the fragility of the human condition merge here with the awareness that the most telling forms of condolence are often irreverent. A performance composed of storytelling gems which stand as testimony to the greatness of the human spirit and of man’s abiding need to help one another. Lone Twin Theatre is one of the most original and remarkable companies of the international scene.
