19th August 1978. Cinema Rex fire, Abadan, Iran. 422 dead.
The year of Superman, Saturday Night Fever, and an act of terror that sparked a revolution. Who will remember the dead? Shahrzad - feral cat, teller of tales - pleads with Death for one more life. To have another saucer of milk. To tell the stories of the dead. For eternity.
CINEMA will preview at Arcola Theatre, London and The Tron, Glasgow in May 2015 before going to The Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August and then onto a full national tour in October.
