Reckless Sleepers Present The Last Supper

Thu 18th January 2018 - Fri 19th January 2018
The Digital Performance Lab, Salford, M50 2HE

Reckless Sleepers invite you to dinner, to The Last Supper, to sample the last meal requests of the famous and the not so famous.

From Marilyn Monroe to Beethoven to prisoners on death row, this intimate and unusual performance serves a startling set of last statements, last meals and last minute scenarios to a limited audience of 39 people.

Sit, sip your wine, and watch as last words are actually eaten before your eyes.

This is rigorous experimental performance that will leave you overstimulated, a bit baffled and oddly moved.

A work of considerable emotional weight.

There is something about the simplicity of this show that is unbearably moving.

Lyn Gardner -The Guardian

The calling of numbers, the presentation of meals, the pause before lifting the lid of the silver serving dish, the pouring of water and wine, the toasting of the departed – all combine to create a quietly moving piece.

Tickets are offered on a ‘Pay What You Decide’ basis.


The performance will accompanied by an installation created by Salford MA students.

The installation is called SEE.DO.HEAR and will be ready for guests from 5pm.

SEE.DO.HEAR is a response to the themes of legacy and choice, which are prevalent within Reckless Sleepers performance The Last Supper.

Claire Wood and Adam Forbes have created an engaging sensory installation that encourages conversations about legacy, death and last meal requests.
