ABOUT Lost Without Words

Lost Without Words at the Dorfman – National Theatre

‘If we don’t get lost, how can we find a new route?’

Pioneering improvisers and theatre makers Improbable bring you their latest show, Lost Without Words – a theatrical experiment.

Lost Without Words runs from 4 March 2017 until 18 March 2017 at the Dorfman – National Theatre.


Imagine older actors in their 70s and 80s, actors who have spent their lives being other people, bringing life to other people’s words. Imagine they were on stage with nothing but themselves and no words but their own. No script, no map, a different show every night, all they have is a lifetime of theatre to help them find their way.


The caste features Georgine Anderson, Caroline Blakiston, Anna Calder-Marshall, Lynn Farleigh, Charles Kay and Tim Preece.


Directed by Phelim McDermott and Lee Simpson with lighting design by Colin Grenfell and music by Steven Edis.
