BLOOD THICKER THAN WATER BY CHRISTOPHER THOMAS

On the morning of their father’s funeral, the Anderson family receives a letter, a catalyst that threatens to ruin the sacred bond between siblings.

Christopher Thomas’ ambitious and tightly performed piece revels in intensity in a way that is almost gleeful and doesn’t let up until the end.

Natasha Tripney, Review Editor & Lead Theatre Critic for The Stage

There is powerful storytelling here: worthy of Dracula or Frankenstein. A cohesive, fluid and well-rehearsed ensemble.

Isobel Rogers, Freelance Dance Critic for The Place Resolution Festival

POETIC WORDS

| Blood Thicker Than Water
Boiling in my hands
In the eyes of our ghost
Forever engraving deep into the cold skin of a broken memory
As she looked upon us
Already chained to her dearest agony
Blood Thicker Than Water |

Premiered at the Sadler’s Wells Lilian Baylis Theatre as part of the Young Associates Choreographic Showcase, December 2017.

Restaged for the 2019 edition of Resolution Festival at the Place Theatre.
