The Drum


Palmyra is an exploration of revenge, the politics of destruction and what we consider to be barbaric, inviting people to step back from the news and look at what lies beneath, and beyond, civilization.

Following an extended, unanimously-acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe and touring Spain with BEST OF BE 2017, Bert & Nasi’s Total Theatre Award-winning, “weird, wonderful and strangely stressful” PALMYRA (★★★★ The Stage) returns with a national tour.

★★★★ It’s rare to see emerging artists with such a strong signature style… sublime.

Matt Trueman, What’s On Stage

★★★★ The duo who created EUROHOUSE shift from comic to tragic in a briljliant piece that reflects on Syria and the breakdown of relationships.

Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

★★★★★ The two fascinate as a coupling, complementing one another, both tackling contemporary issues with a healthy dose of subversive clowning.

Alex Wood, What’s On Stage

★★★★ Performed with extraordinary physical power and dexterity – they resist being pinned down. That’s why they get into your system and continue to haunt you. A highly gifted enterprise, strongly recommended..
