The Last Pearl
Recommended Age 12+ Contains Adult Themes, Strong Language
From the team that created the multi award winning productions Shackleton and The Third Policeman, Blue Raincoat Theatre Company bring their newest devised piece, The Last Pearl, to the Tron.
The Last Pearl is loosely based on the ideas of the environmentalist James Lovelock and was first presented to the public in Sligo, Ireland in the Autumn of 2022. A strong visual theatre piece using scaled models as well as bunraku and shadow puppetry, The Last Pearl tells the story of a woman and her daughter, as they scavenge and explore in a dying world, in the aftermath of a typhoon. It is the story of their ability to adapt to a changing environment and ultimately survive
