A show about escape, love, survival and art. And pigeons.
RAYMONDO World Premiere
Presented by Annie Siddons.
Raymondo and Sparky have been locked in the cellar underneath their house for six years. An accident involving a pigeon enables their escape. But do the brothers have the requisite skills to survive a haphazard and cruel world?
Raymondo is a story of brotherhood, loss, incarceration, escape, survival, desire, art and resilience. It is a story about the cruelty of others, the kindness of others and Love. Simply told by a woman with a microphone and an atmospheric live score of guitars, loops and keyboard, Raymondo is a raw, dark, funny and tender lyrical narrative that will sear through your defences straight to your heart. Written and performed by Annie Siddons. Performed by Daniel Green. Commissioned by New Wolsey Theatre Ipswich and supported by Arts Council England and Battersea Arts Centre.
‘Siddons’ script is almost Shakespearian in its mix of the earthy and ethereal, the funny and the frightening’
