John Wright, co-founder of Trestle, has set up his own company for parallel projects in unmasked theatre. His first production takes a brief tale from Marquez's One Hundred Years Of Solitude and transforms it with beautiful simplicity into a poignant tragedy as young Meme's mother fiercely (and ultimately unsuccessfully guards) her from contact with men. Spellbinding.
