Mel and Leo are like a lot of couples. They live in the present, accommodate the past and anticipate a future consisting of half-made plans they’ll probably never realise. One night a young man arrives on their doorstep with tales of amnesia, stolen bikes, Russians and an almost insatiable appetite for toast. Could he be the son they lost 12 years earlier?
Jane Miller’s Cuckoo was first produced in 2015. This new pared-back production in 2017 was staged with an emphasis on the rhythms within the text, a close audience intimacy, a minimum of props and without resort to theatre lighting.
