PALMYRA is about revenge and what we consider to be barbaric.


Following an critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and tour, Bert & Nasi’s Total Theatre award-winning PALMYRA returns for one day only, as part of a triple bill with ONE (30 Sep - 19 Oct) and Eurohouse (19 Oct).

Bert and Nasi - the violent clowning duo behind the dark comedy about the EU (EUROHOUSE), invite you to step back from the news and look at what lies beneath – and beyond – civilisation.

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.
