THE MOLE AND THE WORM; an underground tale
“You haven´t come to rescue me? …And they´re not waiting for me up there? … And you thought… you thought I was a rock? ...You do that to rocks?”
Through cavernous damp and darkness, a lonesome Spanish pot-holer discovers an antique English girl buried, forgotten in time. Despite their differences, they must somehow get on.
A web of cruelty and unlikely kinship is wound in this darkly innocent tragicomedy.
Since its site-specific inception in 2011, the show has toured in caves, castles, warehouses, decadent old houses, black box theatres, cloister courts - in Spanish and in English. It has had an overwhelming reception, winning two 2nd best show awards and a best actress award in Spain, as well as a nomination for the Creative Award at the Prague Fringe in 2012.

“It’s just outstanding, from start to finish. Excellent performances, a fantastic piece of new writing, and an exciting new company I can’t wait to see more of.”
“Masterfully played ... these accomplished actors use physical theatre, dance, movement and brilliant comic timing... assailing us simultaneously with outrageous ideas, laugh-out-loud humour and dark imaginings.”
