Abandon your home or abandon your friend — which would you choose?

Amidst the debris of a condemned house, two desperate strangers realise they have been abandoned. Huinca (Bil Stuart), a drunk who knows he only has days left to live, has been left with prostitute Eva (Sadie Shimmin) as part of a bet by friends. The two argue and Eva is determined to leave, but is held back by fear. of what awaits her in the outside world. They start making a home from the surrounding junk, but as the bulldozers move in, a choice lies ahead – accept their fate or cling on to hope. Written by award-winning Chilean playwright Juan Radrigán, Mad Man Sad Woman gives voice to the voiceless; finding beauty, laughter, and dignity in the lives amongst the rubble. In a powerful new translation by Catherine Boyle, this timely UK premiere demands attention for those forced to live on the margins of our society. Head for Heights is a theatre company known for its innovative approaches to translation. Their bold new production is directed by Sue Dunderdale. Not recommended for children under 16
