Palomar Theatre presents
Eve escapes her mind with work, drink and sex. No one sees past her carefully curated image of a woman in control. Until she loses it.
Gabe is her new addiction. After another night of watching him flirt, this time with their waitress, Eve confronts the darkness in him. Memories of a childhood long ignored resurface when she realises that his pain lives in her too.
★★★★ “Sharp dialogue, poignancy and a look into the psychology behind our actions – what more could you ask for?” Epigram
Darlings uses tender puppetry, striking stage images and a brutally vulnerable script to explore a manipulative relationship and its connection to childhood experience. This is Palomar’s first preview of the show as it develops before travelling to the Edinburgh Fringe this August.
“Palomar are a bold and driven young company, bravely using art to explore the challenging and difficult ares of our lives.” Ailie DeBonnaire, Tobacco Factory Theatres
Palomar Theatre was founded in the summer of 2017 by graduates of the University of the West of England as a means of staging the subconscious and exploring vulnerability and shame.
In association with Creative Youth Network and with thanks to Tobacco Factory Theatres.
