What can a teenage boy who is into free running and a middle-aged woman with Parkinson’s possibly have in common? The desire to move
Kinetics is based on the remarkable true story of two people seemingly at polar opposites. As Rose tries to come to terms with her diagnosis, an unlikely friendship springs up when Lukas literally lands on her doorstep. But will the bond between them be strong enough when things go wrong?
With brilliant writing, dynamic projected images and live parkour, this play is personal, poignant and will make you laugh out loud.
‘This is an amazing story that needs to be told.’
‘Absolutely terrific. Moving, uplifting and really important work. Something that will linger long in the mind afterwards.’
CHRIS FOGG, DIRECTOR AND DRAMATURG
