PREVIEW: Melancholy – Crescent Arts Centre, Belfast


Crescent Arts Centre will be hosting a two day performance of Melancholy on April 28 & 29.

Presented by Certain Dark Things Theatre Company, one of the New Diorama’s Graduate Emerging Companies for 2016-2017, this poignant performance explores mental health through physical theatre and puppetry as part of their international tour.

Spiral down the stairs to the world of the Inventor. Consumed by grief, he undertakes work on his biggest creation yet, his lost wife… but at what cost?

Following on from a hugely successful 2016, Certain Dark Things are embarking on an international tour with their 5 star show ‘Melancholy’. This production combines physical theatre, puppetry and animation to delve into the world of one man as he treads the fine line between genius and insanity.

With five star reviews from The Stage and Broadway Baby, this play is sure to be a bit of ‘don’t miss’ theatre.
