Fringe comedy comes to St Albans theatre

A dark comedy fresh from the Edinburgh Fringe can be seen at the Maltings Arts Theatre in St Albans tomorrow night. (16)

Absence of Separation, written and performed by Ben Moores and Matt Rothwell, is a bleak Beckettian comedy drama punctuated with physical theatre, spoken word, clowning and live songs.

It delves deep into the minds of the two protagonists who are ready to either redefine themselves or give up on life altogether. They argue about the surreal absurdity of life, fight for their beliefs, question everything, dissect their dreams - and almost lose their minds.

Set in an underground bar, the play touches on everything from spirituality and contemporary society to depression, psychology, dreams, addictions and fairytales.

Acclaimed at the Fringe, it can be seen at 8pm. Tickets are £10 with under 18s £7.50, available from here or go to 0333 666 3366.
