Skewered Snails

A show where the story of a boy who runs away to the tree tops to hide from his father. The story is told without words.

Born of Meyyappan’s solo work, Skewered Snails is the story of a dysfunctional family and of a boy who flees to the tree tops to seek solace from the brutality of his father. Skewered Snails introduces award-winning Billy Mack as the impossible father, Adura Onashile as the ineffectual mother and Sita Pieraccini as the sibling rival to Ramesh Meyyappan, the boy compelled to live in trees for the rest of his life after promising ‘never to touch the ground again.’

Skewered Snails is a highly physical performance boasting half a kilometre of rope and four exceptional performers.
