About the Event

DOORS OPEN 6pm

SHOW STARTS 8pm

The invitations have been delivered, the party games   are ready, the table is set and the balloons are up. But where are all the   children? Mum Katie is convinced that her precious son Leo is the most   popular boy in the class but Dad Max has discovered something that tears him   apart. Other parents whisper conspiratorially at the school gates and plot to   keep their children away. So, whose version of the truth is real? As the   parents wait for the birthday party, the clock ticks and tension builds to an   unbearable climax. Funny, raw and profoundly moving, this incredible award   winning play is guaranteed to take you on a roller coaster of emotions.

Here’s what audience members said following its debut   run at the Titchfield Festival Theatre:

Wow!!! Just   wow, one of the most powerful pieces of theatre I’ve seen. Easy to see why it   was the competition winner. Incredible piece of writing.

It was   stunning, the writing was brilliant, amazing plot and fantastic acting. A WOW   show!

Sleeping Lions   makes the audience feel like a fly on the wall in a very real household. The   way Tom Derrington has captured real life in his writing is fantastic.

In just under   an hour and a half this play managed to hit every one of my emotional   buttons.

It’s funny,   moving, very relevant and races along at break neck speed.

The   relationship between Katie and Max was so heartbreakingly truthful that I   felt every bit of friction, regret, anger and love displayed on the stage.

If you only   see one play this season PLEASE make sure you see this one!

Guidance: This show contains strong language and   some upsetting scenes.
