Fuel presents On Ageing

From the moment we’re born we grow, we change. 

Nothing ever stays the same. 

As an empty room fills with memories, a group of extraordinary performers create a portrait of a lifetime over the course of a show. 

Performed by children for an audience of adults, On Ageing was one of a series of acclaimed performances by Fevered Sleep that unravelled and reimagined the fabric of everyday life.

" ***** On Ageing is beautiful, funny, touching and completely original. Superbly directed by David Harradine and Sam Butler, it bursts with life, invention and youth. It’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before."

The Telegraph

"**** One of the most achingly beautiful nights you’re ever likely to have."


"**** One of the most gently startling shows to be staged this year."
