Thu 8-Sat 10 June 2017
Meet Nel: a foley artist. Don’t know what that is? Don’t worry, not many do. Nel brings films to life through sound. In her world, screeching tyres are made from hot water bottles and epic fight scenes are a symphony of snapping celery and frozen cabbages. Nel is good at this stuff – it’s the rest of her life that’s a disaster...
For the first time, she finds herself completely alone. Her cat’s died and she accidentally poisoned her fish. She needs a friend and perhaps a change of shoes.
But in a world of continuous self-comparison she feels inadequate and finding a friend in today’s world can be more than a little stressful. Using a beautifully crafted mix of live music, onstage foley artistry and physical theatre, Scratchworks presents Nel’s touching story about identity, friendship and what it means to be an introvert.
[NEL is one of two productions presented by Scratchworks Theatre this week. Catch their new production, Great Train Robbery, on Tue 6 or Wed 7 June, or see both shows on Sat 10 June!]
The play is a love song to imagination
Charming and inventive
Flawless physical comedy blended seamlessly with human sadness… Nel will knock your socks off
They are a talented group moving seamlessly from music to acting to mime, but what the show demonstrates above all is their fantastic imagination
This beautifully executed show is quirky, original and bursting with genuine creative talent
