Le Petit Déjeuner, a poem by Jacques Prévert

a story about love

"It’s so powerful that it makes you miss touching and being touched."
Exeunt Magazine

A man and a woman sit down to breakfast in late-1940s Paris.

Comedic and touching, Breakfast is inspired by the poetry of Jacques Prévert and the silent films of Buster Keaton. This is a nostalgic story about courtship and loss, told without a single word, scored live by piano and accordion.

With glorious music, striking visuals, and electric physical comedy, Breakfast is an ode to essential human intimacy.

Devised and performed by Marah Stafford and Nicholas Hart, with live music by folk singer Ben Murray and lighting design by Gregory Jordan.

After premiering at VAULT Festival 2018, where we won the Festival Spirit Award, Breakfast then played at the New Diorama Theatre in London and HOME in Manchester, as part of INCOMING Festival 2018.
