Playmakers’ brand new National Theatre Connections group present Superglue by Tim Crouch as part of the National Theatre Connections Festival 2022.

Superglue tells the story of a group of climate activists gathering at a woodland burial ground to say goodbye to a friend who died during a protest. As they gather, they erect banners and they talk about their pasts and their futures, about peaceful action versus violent action, about how society dismisses them and undervalues their cause.
