A visceral, passionate and violent dissection of a relationship. Time and space remain unspecific in this explosive, imaginative script where a Man and a Woman create, destroy and inhabit their own private universe.

Tender Napalm is an immersive theatrical experience taking place on the top floor of 245 McDermot Avenue, using the Arthur Street entrance (Creative Manitoba). The piece will open in the Sacred Circle with Philip Ridley’s poetic sequence, Lovesongs For Extinct Creatures, followed by a brief intermission before moving into the main performance space. Accessible seating is available, but we ask that you connect with us ahead of time so we can ensure enough space is available for you to have a good view. 

Content warning: violent language and sexuality that some audience members may find disturbing will be part of this production.
