“In the twilight of memory, we shall meet once more.  

We shall speak again and you shall sing a deeper song.”

In Strindberg’s modernist classic, the past intrudes upon the present and the future is shaped by spectres.
Memories mist at their edges. History haunts reality.  The debts of the past must be paid and its ghosts laid to rest.

Staged in the atmospheric archaeological site of The Rose, the theatre Shakespeare began his career at; Scrawny Cat’s Ghost Sonata was a haunting, eerie and poignant adaptation of one of Modernisms great works.
Culminating in two Off West End Award nominations, the production was a powerful, lyrical exploration of the petty cruelties we inflict on those we love and the ways we try to redeem ourselves.
