Blavatsky’s Tower

Date: 13/05/16
Time: 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Following their successful run at Chapter Arts Centre, 3 Crate Productions present Blavatsky’s Tower – a timely play which introduces us to what could happen if we never left our front door. Written by Olivier award winner Moira Buffini, Blavatsky’s Tower will make you think and laugh in equal measure.

Choosing to never leave the family flat to avoid ‘the crushed’, the Blavatsky children have learnt to interact with each other and the world in a more… unusual way. The action begins when a doctor enters their world, and in doing so tries to introduce them to ours, gaining mixed reactions from Hector Blavatsky and his now 20-something year old children. The premise of the piece feels particularly relevant at a time when it’s possible to never leave your house, as we can buy food, clothes and essentials, pay bills and do banking online. The piece is a timely reminder of what the consequences could be of shutting ourselves off from society.

“Jet-black tragicomic entertainment tonight in 3 Crate’s ‘Blavatsky’s Tower’ – Sam Pryce, reviewer for Young Critics and Arts Scene Wales

“Despite what may have been potentially daunting subject matter, social isolation, there was a good dose of humour, engaging characters which were very well played” – Anna Shaw

“’Blavatsky’s Tower’ at Chapter Arts. Architectural brutalism played out in people. Paradise dreamt, built and lost.” – Sam Ruddock, National Theatre Wales

“It held ones attention on serious issues because the writer and performers knew how to present them with deft humour, keeping you wondering how a plot based on delusion and dysfunctional family relations was going to work out.” – Peter Gaskell
