Project Arts Centre and Collapsing Horse present

Theatre

The Water Orchard

Dates: 18 Jul - 29 Jul

Show Time: 7.30pm


The Water Orchard
hasn’t produced a decent batch of water since the ‘78 Vintage. Ah, the ‘78 Vintage! Now that was water. But these days the whole Estate is an ugly, barren mess. It’s finally time for a new generation to take over. It’s gonna be gutted, cleaned up, and there’ll be a profit turned, by god.

But the owner, Old Madeleine, just happens to have disappeared. She is woken up with a jolt in an unsettling and unfamiliar space. There’s a sentient projector asking her a lot of questions, and it seems to know a little too much about her life…

Can her Estate, full of fools, liars, hammy actors, and narcissists work together to find her? And what exactly is it they will find if they do…?

The Water Orchard is a kaleidoscopic new comedy from Collapsing Horse, pushing the bounds of farce and surrealism to consider just how much of a life is spent masking and revealing oneself, acting and reacting, projecting and being projected upon.
