The UK premiere of an absurdist comedy written by internationally acclaimed German writer Marius von Mayenburg.


Perplex is an amusingly odd journey through a familiar space. Two couples stumble through the play - but who is coupled with whom? Old questions about meaning and identity resurface in a contemporary setting, augmented by a dreamlike logic. As the characters try to make sense of their lives, the theatrical ambiguity invites us to do the same.
