***Important Information***

To protect the safety of our community and to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Art & Design Gallery is now closed to the public until further notice and all UH Arts events until the end of May are postponed or cancelled. This decision has been made in line with current University policy, following advice from the Government and the Director of Public Health from Hertfordshire County Council.

Our team will be in touch shortly with all our customers, performers, artists and partners to advise next steps, and we will ensure the latest information is posted on our website and social media channels.

We thank you for your understanding.

Passengers:

Max wants to tell you a story. He’s not entirely sure why, or even who he is: savage, peacekeeper or critic?

Passengers, by award-winning UK trans writer Kit Redstone and highly acclaimed UK director Jessica Edwards, explores the epic battles within the psyche and the beautiful power of the mind to protect itself, using ensemble theatre to invite you to see the self in a whole new way.

Kit Redstone has a mild form of Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). This is a complex psychological condition, previously known as multiple personality disorder. Passengers is a semi-autobiographical dark comedy about the epic battles and alliances within the psyche and the power of the mind to protect itself from pain. Using Kit’s trademark blend of comedy, tragedy, playfulness and heart, Vacuum Theatre show us that by understanding we all have multiple, complex personalities, we can have more compassion and understanding for ourselves and each other.

Kit Redstone’s previous show TESTOSTERONE was shortlisted for The Samuel Beckett Award, The Peter Brook Award and The Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award and was winner of the Indies Best Theatre Show 2017.
