Gods Are Fallen And All Safety Gone is an investigation into what happens when we discover that our parents are flawed human beings, and that at some point, sooner than we think, they are suddenly going to disappear from our lives.
In an intimate and funny exploration of mother and daughter relationships, two highly skilled male actors explore the fascinating relationship dynamic of a thirty-something daughter and her ageing mother.
The honest, frank and familiar exchanges between mother and daughter range from the everyday: tea, travel, boyfriends and more tea; to the truth of their seemingly tense relationship. Gods Are Fallen And All Safety Gone is a lifetime of conversations, condensed into one hour.
“For as long as it’s not too late to talk to your mother, ‘Gods Are Fallen’ may not break your heart.” The Moscow News
“It feels less like a traditional theatrical suspension of disbelief and more as if some kind of transference is taking place..” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
