“You and Me” – A Clown Play from the UK with Patricia Rodriguez and Merce Ribot.

0

Two elderly Spanish sisters live in a foreign land against the backdrop of a battered rug and a mountain
of mysterious boxes. They share an existence of outrageous defamation, tender reminiscing and pure
madness, careering between affection and annoyance. But is their behaviour just eccentricity or
something more destructive?
You and Me blends laugh-out-loud comedy with empathy in a moving exploration of old age.
