“Theatre Re creates an entrancing, poignant world, and an hour spent in it seems all too brief.” – Edinburgh Spotlight

Established in 2009, Theatre Re is a London-based international ensemble creating thought-provoking and moving works that examine fragile human conditions through mime, theatre, and live music.

Tom is fifty-five today. As he dresses for his party, tangled threads of disappearing memories spark him into life, unravelling as a tale of friendship, love, and guilt. The Nature of Forgetting is a powerful, explosive, and joyous piece that combines physical theatre with a live musical score to ask: what is left when memory is gone?
