“There is something about the simplicity of this show that is unbearably moving” - The Guardian

“For those with a taste for the macabre, this is the ultimate feast for you. Reckless Sleepers’ intelligent, witty and chilling dinner party will have you participating in an unforgettable remembrance of lives lived and lost” - Bec Dean, Performance Space Co-Director

You are invited to participate in a morbidly intimate dinner party for 39.

Sitting around a dinner table in a Da Vinci-like mise-en-scène, be guided by three charming hosts in a compelling tale of real and imagined death scenarios. These include the untimely deaths of some of the most controversial celebrities, criminals, victims, heroes and not-so-famous individuals of our time.

In between sipping your wine and witnessing people’s last words being literally eaten before your eyes, 13 audience members are treated to an unusual feast: the last meal requests of inmates on death row.

Join us for this captivating, multi-sensory meal-performance; the ultimate toast to those bereft of life.

Written and directed by Mole Wetherell
Performed by Leen Dewilde, Tim Ingram and Mole Wetherell

About Reckless Sleepers:
Reckless Sleepers is an experimental theatre company. They create original theatre pieces, installation projects and interventions for theatres, galleries, museums, site and seasonally specific projects that both entertain and challenge its audiences, viewers and participants. Producing works from a basis of research and development, they present works in which ideas are central, projects are installed rather than presented, mistakes are embraced, ideas are given a chance, and a second chance, and pushed so that they become uncomfortable to do, uncomfortable to listen to and uncomfortable to watch.

The Last Supper is part of Matters of Life and Death, Performance Space’s program of international and Australian works exploring the ultimate driving force of life: our fear of death. Pack up your most primal fears and your brightest hopes, and join us for an inspiring three weeks of participatory performance, unsettling installations, contemporary dance, food preserving workshops, discussions about the great beyond, and much more!
