Tender Napalm

'I could push a bullet between those lips. Gently. I wouldn't break a single tooth'Philip Ridley's seminal Tender Napalm was hailed an instant classic when it premiered in 2011. Named Best Show by the Observer, Time Out and The Guardian, it has since been performed worldwide. The show now makes its long overdue return  - in a startling, brand new production -  to surprise and seduce all over again.Two lovers. A desert Island. Sea serpents. UFOs. Tsunamis. Unicorns. Atomic bombs. What is this thing...called love?
