By Carpet Theatre & Mermaid Arts Centre

Have you ever tried to build shelves only to have them collapse and smash the wedding crystal? Or opened another bill when your account is in the red? What’s your breaking point?
Pigeon is about that final straw, the story of an ordinary man caught in the crossfire. Tony has done the same job for twenty years, and then things change… He goes into DIY overdrive. Fixing things and sifting through his belongings, he can’t decide what to keep and what to throw away. Is he losing his job, his home, his wife or his mind?
A wonderfully wordless production filled with fascinating character masks performed to an upbeat soundtrack by Jack Cawley and Steve Wickham (The Waterboys).
“…devised physical theatre at its best”
