He comes across a woman with a cup and saucer on her head. They meet, they fall in love, she hugs his duck, he fills her cup. Angels play behind them.
Filled with humour, irony and absurdities, State of Bewilderment followed a man’s journey to find what is missing from his life. The show toured numerous times throughout the UK and across Europe, as well as to Australia including performances at the Perth Festival in 1993 and a seven week sell-out run in 1996 at the Sydney Opera House; a co-production with the Sydney Theatre Company.
Based on the work of the celebrated Australian cartoonist, Michael Leunig, State of Bewilderment was one of Trestle’s most ambitious productions to date.
