Yellow Pears

Raz and Itsy run a market stall unlike any other. They have bad taste, no flair for business but some seriously good dance moves. Yellow Pears is the big-hearted tale of two outsiders whose bizarre yet binding friendship creates a home for two people who are always on the wrong side of the door. A bold, exuberant, physical comedy for everyone.

"There is a gentle sense of the mischievous to Swept Up Theatre's lightly knockabout physical comedy. But performers and devisers Rose McPhilemy and India Crawford also find a serious edge to the production, which touches on the nature of work, art and a self-imposed position in the rat race...It is beautifully played out, a dance of deep affection" THE STAGE
