The Land of Lost Content

Presented by Pleasance Theatre 

Written by Henry Madd

Directed by Nic Connaughton & Lauren Lambert Moore

An empowering story about friendship, adolescence, and life not going to plan.

Henry and Jake grew up with their mates in a quiet country town called Dulowl. A town where they forged friendships in bad habits and damp raves as they stumbled through adolescence looking for something to do. Then Henry moved away.

Now he’s back but there’s no enjoying a welcome-home-pint without facing up to the memories he left behind. 

A compassionate, funny and deeply moving take on life in a small town.

Age guideline: 14+ 

Listed in The Stage’s top 10 theatre shows of Fringe 2022
