Fri. 28th May at 7pm/8pm/9pm:



Meet Dorothy. Dorothy is eighty and lives alone in a Victorian house in Birmingham. She has one eye, no teeth and a soft spot for Starsky and Hutch.

A visual theatre portrait telling the intricate story of one life. Visual artist and puppeteer Sarah Fuller and performer Vanessa Earl are collaborating to bring Dorothy’s story to life using shadows, objects and performance. Her story is told through the memories of her eight-year old grand-daughter who spent many weekends at her house.

Performance lasts approximately 30mins. There will be no seating, so please be prepared to stand.

This is a work-in-progress performance, there will be no charge but any donations will be received with pleasure!
