Sarah feels stuck. All she wants is a quiet life; a non- hyperactive five year old and a house in Barbados. So finding a lamp at the bus stop that looks mysteriously like the wish fulfilling, genie-containing lamp from Aladdin is obviously going to be the answer to her prayers… right?



Each year Tête à Tête tours a small performing group around the public spaces of King’s Cross (streets, parks, squares) and our own foyers to perform a set of super short five minute operas of which UnconGENIE-al is one.
