Tender Napalm

Down the Rabbit Hole Theatre


Man and Woman are shipwrecked on a desert island. He is a post-war fighter pilot, she is his wife. Teenage sweethearts in isolation, with a now unseen child, they have turned into emotional castaways in this sweet, funny, and viciously sensual drama – part fairy tale, part adventure story, part boy-meets-girl romance. With flashbacks of invasions and bombings, this is a dystopian, post-apocalyptic world, somehow still very familiar. An elemental battle-of-the-sexes, that goes not just into the bedroom, but into the mind. A master drama by Philip Ridley, one of Britain’s greatest contemporary dramatists and a script awarded “best theatre of the year.”
