To Sleep a play by Matt Fox Sterts

August 18, 2023 @ 7:30 pm

| £13

Friday 18th August from 7.30pm at the Sterts Studio.

Age 16+ contains strong language, suicide & upsetting scenes

Covering one night in the lives of two suicidal strangers, this warm, compassionate, and darkly humorous new play explores how people deal with the most difficult human situations with warmth, compassion and dark humour.

To Sleep shows how relationships can develop between different people no matter how appalling their shared experiences might be.

Ten years after its last performance, Madam Renard’s are delighted to be back. Following the success of Battle Cry, Matt Fox and Steve Cowley have come together again to rework and reimagine the 2013 success, To Sleep.

‘Funny dialogue, pacey writing and an unlikely comic partnership really draw the audience into the story, whilst providing a dynamic that adds poignancy to the sadder and more serious aspects of the script’

‘It is phenomenal’ – ‘To Sleep is a powerful production of tragedy, trauma, regret, life and friendship’ – ‘To Sleep is heart breaking…tragic but beautiful’ – ‘Steve Cowley’s performance is mesmerising’ – ‘Matt Fox is skilled at composing witty dialogue and has the ability to examine difficult social issues with humour and compassion’ – ‘Abigail Bailey has impeccable comic timing’ – ‘Steve Cowley, he breaks your heart without even trying’ – ‘Wonderfully written by Matt Fox’ – ‘Bailey is strong with vocals, comedy and sincerity’.
