Picture yourself as a bartender, sipping top-shelf whiskey and watching your customers descend into nightly oblivion. Your heart is broken by the world around you and, leaving the whisky aside, you hatch a devious, unthinkable plan of escape - Award-winning FellSwoop Theatre present Ablutions: a dark, modern drama, adapted from the novel by Man Booker shortlisted author, Patrick deWitt. A grimly funny tale from the sodden depths of the Los Angeles underworld, Ablutions blends a live soundtrack with detailed mime and deWitt's heart-wrenching humour.
An associate company of Bristol Old Vic Ferment, FellSwoop has received much critical acclaim since their formation in 2010. Their productions have won the NSDF Methuen Drama award for Emerging Artists (Belleville Rendez-vous) and the Ignite Festival Critics' Choice award (Ablutions).
