Following a sell-out run at the 2017 London International Mime Festival, Latitude and the Edinburgh Fringe, Theatre Re presents a powerful, explosive and joyous piece about what is left when memory is gone.
Tom is 55, today. As he dresses for his party, tangled threads of disappearing memories spark him into life, unravelling as a tale of friendship, love and guilt.
Established in 2009, Theatre Re is a London-based international ensemble creating thought-provoking, tangible and poignant work that examines fragile human conditions and spans the boundaries of mime and theatre.
Presented in association with Glynis Henderson Productions.
Profoundly moving… An action-packed celebration of life. －Front Row - BBC Radio 4, John Wilson
This is an exceptionally fine piece of high-energy physical theatre. －Edinburgh Guide

Established in 2009, Theatre Re is a London-based international ensemble that creates thought-provoking and moving works that examine the fragile human condition in a compelling, physical style, embracing mime, theater and live music. These works are often described as magical, poetic and tender, as well as disturbing and haunting. The name of the company comes from the prefix “re”, as in re-discovering and re-imagining, as it breathes new life into what already exists.
Intimate collaborations with experts in different fields – such as science and public health – and various community groups during the creative process play a crucial role in the development of its works. Its productions have been performed in the UK, France, Ireland, Switzerland, Germany and the USA.
GHP represents a variety of theatre, comedy and music productions and has become one of the UK’s leading international production companies specialising in introducing unique and exciting new work to international audiences worldwide and bringing international work to the UK.
Glynis formed Glynis Henderson Productions in 1990 and the company has now produced, toured and general managed over 50 productions around the world. GHP’s work has been nominated for and won a number of awards including an Olivier Award for STOMP and a nomination for Ennio Marchetto.
STOMP continues to tour worldwide having visited 56 countries to date and remains one of the most successful UK touring exports. In 2017, GHP presented A Clockwork Orange in New York after a return sell-out season in London.
GHP continues to find new productions and develop new relationships with companies around the world. The company now represents a total of 16 productions available for international touring and works with partners around the world in territories including Europe, China, India, Australia and many more.
