An absurd and darkly comic play which hurls its characters across the stage, genuinely believe that they might just take flight. At its core, Dandelion Heart asks fundamental questions of the nature of humanity and being human, and why, so often, all we really want to do is run away.

They Say: Expect fantastic, expect devilishly clever, expect daredevil neartoolatelastminuteoooohhe’sgotoutjustintime escapes and japes and high quality high jinks. Expect these things, because expected, generally, happens.
