Mon 9 to Sun 15 Oct
A post-apocalyptic comedy about two ageing soap opera stars who still think they’re on the show that ended when the world did.
Unlikely (and unlikeable) apocalypse survivors and sisters, Christine and Christina, dwell in a trailer on the set of long running soap opera Cloverlea - home to them since infancy. Each day they effortlessly transform into beloved characters Krystal and Veronika and prepare their scenes with dedicated cheer.
Rehearsals are interspersed with conversations about the sisters’ lives: their brief and failed foray into the music industry; Christine’s time in the cookery cult; why everyone they ever love is called Jeffrey; and, perhaps most importantly of all, which of them will be crowned matriarch of Cloverlea.
So, when each new script begins to kill off major characters, and then, startlingly, swathes of humanity, the sisters cannot hide their distress. What’s going on? And could they be next?
Cloverlea brings the absurd to the existential. An exploration of delusion, survival and love, this is the post-apocalyptic soap opera comedy you didn’t know you needed.
