Poster image by arcola 60+ group The Insect Play Directed by Romana Fllelo costume Designer Natalie Jackson Venue arcola theatre Humans have a hard life – from politics to personal relationships, from wealth to murder, from the richest king to the poorest pauper – we all have our issues, our woes, our loves and our hates. But what of the other trillions of inhabitants of this earth? Do insects have a class system? A political agenda? An understanding of the word ‘Love’? And what does this say about humankind, if ultimately we are no better than insects..? In this production, “Arcola 60+” group examines the political and social message of the Capek brothers, and how our world has (or hasn’t) changed.
