Escape For Dummies
Created and directed by Josh Mallalieu and Laurence Cuthbert, produced by Joanne Blunt
Deep in the confines of her retail prison a lone dummy dreams of aworld beyond the shop’s shutters. Then one day, a new arrival in menswear topples her routine. Evading the watchful gaze of suspicious security guards,maniacal watch dogs and
the sinister floor manager, together they hatch a plot to escape.
A devised work directed by Chris Trueman, produced by Amy Crighton
Wrecked is an absurd political satire chronicling two days in the lives of six pirates and one dead parrot, shipwrecked on a tropical island.When there is no longer an authority to rebel against, these buffoonish buccaneers turn on one another, each vying for power, using different ideologies to manipulate their comrades.
All profits from these performances will ve donated to the Children's Brain Tumour Research Centre as part of Nottingham LifeCycle 7.
