There are things in life you can’t rehearse for...

Summer. Autumn. Winter. Spring. is a quartet about the human life cycle - living, dying, and our relationship with time - from internationally renowned theatre company Quarantine. 

Comprising three live performances and a film, this piece of mass portraiture is epic in scale, ambition and subject. 

Each piece has a distinct focus: Summer. sees dozens of people on stage responding to this very day; Autumn. unfolds as a two hour interval in history, full of food, conversation and clairvoyance; Winter. meets a woman preparing for death and Spring. is performed by pregnant women and imagines lives as yet unlived.
