On the top floor of a crumbling city tower block, the building's architect, Hector Blavatsky, has been in self-imposed exile with his family for decades. Now, in his final days, a stranger comes to call...
"I broke open the door and pulled myself up into a new world..."
Behind The Eye Theatre mounts this timely revival of one of Moira Buffini's earliest plays. Described by What's On as 'a startlingly original voice and an outstanding talent', Buffini has carved a role as one of Britain's best-loved playwrights, whose work speaks to a vision of humanity at its best and worst.
A Rapunzel-esque fairytale for the modern age, Blavatsky's Tower is a richly themed and darkly comic portrait of the extent to which ambition - and its failure - shape all our destinies.
