Shooting Fish Theatre Company present


Written and Directed by Darren Bolton

Thu 25th September 2008 at 7.45pm in the Ron Barber Studio Theatre

“When you’re born into a town that’s cloaked in a smog of apathy, your dreams get laminated - you can look, but not touch.”

Laminated tells the story of Charlie, a failed writer coming to terms with the end of his career.  Packing up to leave his home, he begins to reconstruct his memories to create a past he can accept.  Rummaging through these memories and unfinished stories, he is overwhelmed by the growing presence of an ex lover, who confronts him with a truth he never expected.

Laminated is an imaginative and beautifully visual piece, using puppetry and physical theatre to bring life to the stories and memories of Charlie’s world. It asks us to consider the reality of chasing our dreams, and all the things in life that we can see, but not touch.

Tickets £8 (Concessions £6)
