The Yellow Traffic Light
  • Vault Festival

Grandpa Gerson was only living his best life. On that day, he woke up early to prepare a special meal for his beloved granddaughter arriving from the big town to visit the family. However, this encounter brings a generational & ideological clash, changing Gersons life forever. Between love, hate, guilt & pleasure, the yellow traffic light of their beloved city is taken down. Who is the culprit? How far can you love those who vote against you? How many secrets a family has to hide to keep together?This thought-provoking, dark-comedy was written by the Brazilian performer Isabella Sperotto, inspired by the story of her family and the rise of the far-right in Brazil.Navigating through radio novels, character-comedy, music and physical theatre, this is a witty storytelling, in which the performer gives life & voice to a whole family on stage.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
