The Overwhelming

Tue 26 Sep to Sat 30 Sep 2006


Direct from its run at the National Theatre: a chilling, tropical thriller in which no-one is quite what they seem.

1994. An American family arrive in beautiful, tiny Rwanda and find themselves out of their depth.

Struggling academic Jack Exley makes enemies when he tries to solve a mysterious disappearance. His teenage son finds grown-up trouble in Kigali’s nightclubs. And his ambitious new wife goes on a sightseeing trip that not even her Detroit childhood can prepare her for. Then Jack discovers the lists…

A gripping story of a country on the brink of genocide.

Out of Joint make a welcome return to Liverpool following their critically-acclaimed tour of Talking to Terrorists and The Permanent Way.
