The night is young.
The world is ending.
The relationship is exploding.

Publicly, Flora and Nic are the perfect couple. Privately, they haven’t spoken to each other in months. As the Glaciers melt and the rain begins to fall, they’ve got one night to settle the scores. One of them is going to crack. The Bearpit interrogates what we tell ourselves to be true versus the reality raging beneath the surface. Utilising and contrasting text and movement, the show is investigation into what happens when a community stops talking to each other.

“Brilliantly co-written… like a firework going off in your face.”
Matt Trueman, WhatsOnStage

“A deeply atmospheric piece of theatre, achieved with style.”
Broadway Baby

“A stunning debut.”

Kopfkino is the collaboration between Flora Marston and Nic McQuillan. We tell stories about what it means to be part of our generation, and the juxtapositions of living in a polarised society. Our work burrows down into the cracks between public and private; real and unreal. It is inherently autobiographical.
