SUMMARY

Bright lights, hay spirals down. Ringmaster Baltimore Bontecou seems to have left the premises, but the lights are on, the heating’s still working and the acts look set to tick along swimmingly. Written and directed by Nikki Moss, highlighted by the Sunday Times for her ‘raw commitment’ and ‘physical invention and expressiveness’, Madhouse is an expedition into the bizarre. Both vibrant and vulnerable, these characters are not hostages, but revel in the violence they bestow upon one another and the contrasting moments of tenderness they display. They are an experiment in embracing the peculiar and rolling with it. Comedic yet poignant, this play draws a world of fundamentally broken people with a way of seeing that doesn’t work in tandem with anyone else’s - even each other’s. What emerges, in the absence of any grounding point, is this: insanity is relative.
