Two people, furiously in love, struggling to stay afloat.
Down to Zero is an emotionally explosive, darkly funny new play by Lizi Patch, about two people, furiously in love, struggling to stay afloat as the past threatens to sink their future.
"In the eyes of evolution I am now a pointless person..."
As Steph hits the menopause, she feels she is becoming a bystander in her own bewildering decline. Her partner Sam plans a surprise weekend away for her 50th birthday, but their determined idyll is ripped away by the arrival of a surprise visitor.
"I'm slipping away and I don't know what to do...."

The play is followed by response pieces by North East artists Degna Stone, Allison Davies, Claire Tustin and Beccy Owen.
