Hot summer night. Past locked houses and moonlit trees. In the ravine a million fireflies flit and dance. Lavinia Nebbs stands listening, in the middle of a thousand warm shadows there are little bits of sudden snow all over her flesh – “Every time I take a step, there’s an echo. Someone’s following me.”
The Lonely One, is a deliciously dark tale of fear, with a touch of humour based on an excerpt from the novel Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury. Adapted and directed by Rachel Warr – Artistic director of Dotted Line Theatre and newly appointed Associate Artist at The Little Angel Theatre.
“I am delighted to be the Little Angel Theatre’s 2012 Associate Artist. The Little Angel are right at the heart of UK puppetry, and at the forefront of encouraging the development of new puppetry work. Through this position I get to broaden my craft through additional training and to develop my own creative practice in a supportive environment. Both the venue and the team has a warm and inclusive quality, and it’s a pleasure to be part of it.”
This creative adaptation is brought vividly to life courtesy of Dotted line theatre’s distinctive style of shadow play and light manipulation.
The Lonely One will also be performing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2012 : Underbelly’s Iron Belly, Edinburgh from 2nd-26th August.
