Inside Out Festival




Ten years ago, John disappeared out to sea. Today, his five siblings reunite to build a vessel in his memory and confront their past in the way they did as children in Ireland: by telling stories, acting them out and disagreeing violently at every turn.

Following a critically acclaimed run at this year’s Edinburgh Festival, Leicester and Nottingham-based theatre company Fine Frenzy present a play shot-through with moments of powerful physical theatre using only raincoats, rope and torchlight. Vessel looks at the dangers of making myths out of memories and the fact that we can never escape family.
