Tick Tock, Tick Tock… Every night Ernest sits, quiet and still, in the darkened corner of his apartment block; watching, waiting… Poe meets Hitchcock in this noir-horror which combines live-music, physical storytelling and stylized design.


Past venues on tour include Oxford Playhouse, Sheffield Crucible, Bristol Old Vic Theatre, the egg, Pleasance Theatre, Wales Millenium Centre and Samuel Beckett Theatre in Dublin.


Ernest was nominated for a Total Theatre Award in 2009
