The New Theatre

A story about love. And spiders. And to a lesser extent; a grasshopper.

In an attempt to secure their long-term future and prepare for a baby, Conor buys Alice a Chilean rose tarantula. Understandably upset, Alice leaves, and Conor’s obsession with Bellhop the spider begins. With only his own shed exo-skeleton for company, can Bellhop find some meaning in a life lived in captivity?

This absurd comedy by Aidan Fitzmaurice is suitable for both arachnophobes and arachnophiles.
