About the Event

Sleeping Lions by Tom Derrington

It is Leo’s 6th birthday.  His tormented mother, Katie is determined to give her little boy the party he deserves. His father Max thinks it’s a terrible idea. Set in real-time, as the parents wait in vain for Leo’s friends to start arriving, accusations fly, uninvited guests show up and painful truths are realised. A mordantly funny, yet heart-wrenching story about love, denial, compassion, and loss.

Some strong language and upsetting topics centred around death are explored in the play.
