About the show
The Snake Pit is a one person exploration of trauma and avoidance, looking at how far we go to avoid talking about the things that effect us. Using meta theatre, singing and immersive sound, this show explores how we cope when we’re forced to address the stories we’re not ready to tell.
"Welcome to my jungle. That’s my jungle, not your jungle. I control everything here, even you, because you paid to see me. But don’t you worry I am here to entertain! To show you a show about … well that would be telling!"
