*** We are sorry but this performance is now sold-out. Why not try Little Red (7-12 yrs) or The Queen Has Vanished (5-12 yrs) instead? ***


A house that is too small. A man and a woman who are too big.

They live near each other,  borrow each other’s sugar, vacuum cleaner, old family photographs.  They seem to be made for each other. But living together is not as straightforward as it might seem.   

A story about one couple’s quest for domestic bliss where two flexible performers squeeze, twist and contort into some very tight corners, as they go about their everyday life. Set in a cramped wooden box, the couple have to perform acrobatic feats to achieve mundane tasks such as getting dressed or making tea, with great comic timing.

Narrow is supported by the Flemish Government.
