3am Waitress

Wednesday 03 November 2021 at 8:00 pm

‘Her shift started at the end of the world.’


It’s 3am in a cafe on the last road to nowhere. In this café is a waitress. She has no name, past or future and only the radio to drown out the silence. Incorporating performance poetry, physical theatre and aerial silk, 3am Waitress is a haunting road movie soundtrack to loneliness, detachment and the brief moments that bring us back to life. It explores the damage done by solitude, the tenderness of unexpected connections and the ultimate peace that comes when we accept the world as it is.

‘The 3am waitress listening to the world end, one song at a time.’

This 65 minute high energy dance theatre piece received a five star review and sell out audiences at Edinburgh Fringe 2018 and has recently been made into a stunning feature film with original music.

“A truly touching performance, finding hope in the most desolate of times and places.” (Audience Member)
