Two tense and unnerving plays from a talented Brazilian playwright, premiered in English at the Royal Court Theatre, London.

In Almost Nothing, Antonio and Sara are being playful as they prepare to go to bed, but they cannot ignore what lurks outside. In a world where a life can mean almost nothing, just how far does one have to go to keep the demons at bay?

In At the Table, six men's lives collide in a web of fear, duty and responsibility. Encounters twenty years apart show the reverberations from an undisclosed incident as Luis and Marcio try to come to terms with their past.
