When the Dove Returns

When the Dove Returns tells the story of six survivors of a flood who have been stuck on a ship for thirty days. As the damage done to their world becomes clear, they have to find a way to rebuild their lives… How much humanity will we sacrifice when our lives are at stake?

This new, ambitious devised piece combines touching observations and outrageous humour in a dynamic, physical piece that makes the audience laugh, gasp and reflect.

This was our second devised show which was performed at the Blue Elephant Theatre between March 28th to April 1st 2017.

When the Dove Returns succeeds in providing a social commentary on the impact of environmental neglect while managing to offset the doom and gloom with a good dose of humour and eclectic flair.
