Hull Truck Theatre are delighted to welcome The Solid Life of Sugar Water from Graeae Theatre Company and Theatre Royal Plymouth, following rave reviews and audience acclaim at the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
This fully accessible production comes to Hull Truck Theatre in February as part of a UK tour before visiting the National Theatre in London.
A tender, compelling and unsettling play, The Solid Life of Sugar Water follows the journey of a young couple, Phil and Alice, as they attempt to reconnect with each other following a stillbirth. It’s a play about love, loss, recovery, and how a couple communicate in the wake of a tragedy.
Graeae Theatre Company challenge preconceptions, champion accessibility and place Deaf and disabled artists centre stage.
Premiering at the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the production picked up three five-star reviews and fifteen four-star reviews from across the national press. It was also awarded the ‘most accessible production’ at the Festival Fringe at the inaugural Euan’s Guide Awards.
The Solid Life of Sugar Water is written by Jack Thorne, writer of Let the Right One In and Hope for the stage, as well as hit TV series Skins, Shameless and This is England. His play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child opens in the West End this year.
The production is fully accessible, integrating captions and audio description at all performances.
