“There’s more than a dash of ‘Godot’ to this promising play…Adam Peck’s script has a sparse elegiac beauty” –Andrzej Lukowski, Time Out
"It is all vividly and hauntingly realized...Fairground is definitely a company to watch." –The Guardian
"We have chosen to live lives less ordinary..."
Crossing the state border in a stolen Ford V-8 with a trunk of sawn-off shotguns and bootleg whiskey, Bonnie and Clyde have found one last place to hide. Time is ticking – they're on the run from the law and from reality, but which one will catch them first?
Based on the true story, and set in 1934 in an unnamed southern state of America, Bonnie & Clyde is an intimate re-telling of the final hours of one of the world's most infamous criminal couples.
