The Messenger

A small waiting room,
a broken family,
a life-changing decision.

Inspired by first-hand accounts, The Messenger is award-winning Limbik Theatre’s new show about nurses involved in organ donation.

It’s a wet Monday night on an ITU ward in London, and the pressure for beds is growing. The clock is ticking, but time has come to a standstill for the Greene family, as they struggle to make the most difficult decision of their lives.

With stunning movement, dark comedy and live music, The Messenger reveals a fascinating world that stretches the membrane of life, asking what is death and why can’t we bring ourselves to talk about it until it is too late.
