PALMYRA is an exploration of revenge and what we consider to be barbaric.
From Bert and Nasi, the violent clowning duo behind the critically acclaimed dark comedy about the EU (EUROHOUSE), PALMYRA invites you to step back from the news and look at what lies beneath – and beyond – civilisation.
Following an extended, unanimously-acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe and tour of Spain with BEST OF BE 2017, Bert & Nasi’s Total Theatre Award-winning, ‘weird, wonderful and strangely stressful’ PALMYRA (★★★★ The Stage) returns.
The ancient city of Palmyra was one of the best preserved in the world. Tourists flocked to visit the iconic temples of Bel and Baalshamin as well as the Arch of Triumph. Palmyra has changed hands throughout history, from the Roman Empire in the first century to the recent ISIS occupation.
