Rats’ Tales

Gap I production – November 2018

by Carol Ann Duffy adapted for the stage by Melly Still

Directed by Amanda Crewes

It is supposedly the case that you are never more than 10 feet away from a rat. In this compendium of verminous fables, you are certainly never far from a fiendish plot twist, a thrilling metaphor or a dazzling feat of theatrical invention.

Duffy’s narratives have a remarkable ability to transplant the archetypes of folklore into what could be the case-studies of an overextended social worker.
