Join UK company Reckless Sleepers for a truly intimate performance experience, staged under the mosaic ceiling of NGV International's Great Hall.

The Last Supper tackles notions around death, fame, immortality and myth through the final words of history's famous and not-so-famous. Each audience member will be given a table number, a case number and an incident number, where thirteen of these are final meal requests. Limited to just 39 places per performance, take a seat at this unconventional table and delve deep into the lives of criminals, victims, heroes, heroines and stars.

* Limited seats remaining. Best availability at 8.30pm on Saturday 11 July.

Please note, The Last Supper is a performance experience. Guests will NOT all receive a meal with the show. Please be prepared not to eat during the performance.

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