Today we’re pleased to announce two new adventurous HighTide productions for 2019.

We are thrilled to be collaborating with the Bush Theatre with a co-production of Rust by Kenny Emson as well as presenting The Trick by Eve Leigh, a co-production with Loose Tongue.

We cannot wait to share these world premieres in the new year! You can read more about each production below.

‘If we’re tricked, it means our brains are working the way they’re supposed to.’

We’re very good at processing what we need. To keep moving.’

Mira’s husband, Jonah, died seven months ago, but that doesn’t mean that either of them are ready to let him go…

The Trick is a magic show about getting older and coming to terms with loss. Ghosts, goldfish, mediums, and sleight-of-hand collide in this unpredictable exploration of ageing and grief.

‘Rule number eleven: We don’t talk about them. Not here. They don’t exist here.’

Nadia and Daniel have a secret. In fact, they have quite a few. They’ve just signed on the dotted line for a studio flat. Under a pseudonym, naturally – Mr and Mrs White. After years of school pick-ups, TV takeaways, and the day to day drudgery of married life, this is their chance to wipe the slate clean. But as much as they try and redefine the rules, and themselves, the outside world is closing in.

Ultra-contemporary, sexy and funny, Rust pushes the boundaries of trust, love and lust to the limit.
