Bristol theatre company Ad Infinitum presents a lockdown homemade special entitled A Small Gathering. ‘Stuck in endless Lockdown isolation, three characters find different ways of managing as the days tick over and thoughts turn into visions of madness. Ad Infinitum brings an assortment of darkly comic, twisted tales online for the very first time, exploring solitude and the richness of our internal world in the face of a new reality.’ This brilliant short film was commissioned by the multi-award-winning international theatre company as they invite some of their favourite artists to create work at home. A Small Gathering was made without spoken language so is accessible to D/deaf and hard of hearing audiences and tickets are ‘Pay What You Can.’ For more details and to book visit their page.
