What happens when we reach the point of no return?
William Williams is the local Butcher. At 7 o’clock every night he takes off his bloody apron, opens up the doors of the family dolls’ house and entertains us with tales of a world gone mad. With stories of cavorting Germans, ill-used clothes pegs, burning books, exploding big toes, and remote-control inflatable dolls, William will tell us, “It’s just like homeopathy… a little bit of bad news does you good.”
Following on from success and acclaim with The Castle Builder, Vic Llewellyn returns with A Little Death, a one-man show about mass hysteria. With original songs from Kid Carpet, very tiny objects, torches, and an invisible gorilla.
Directed by Tanuja Amarasuriya and Emma Williams.
Designed by Shona Reppe.
Supported by Bristol Old Vic FERMENT, Arts Council England, Hawkwood College.
Age rating: 12+
“A Little Death is a compact masterpiece of storytelling that unfolds again and again like origami” – Bristol 24/7
“Playful and funny …one of the best shows I’ve seen this year, and I can’t wait to see it again” – Exeunt Magazine
