A new play from writer Marietta Kirkbride and the award-winning team behind Bucket Club’s Lorraine & Alan and Fossils.
Kelsey. Cornish teenager. Timid lover of anarchic music. Kelsey lives in a converted fishing boat moored on the Helford River. She is proud daughter to Tristan of Helford, the local legend who makes a living robbing all the nearby second homes. But then young Gale walks into their lives and Kelsey wakes up to who she really is. The outside world encroaches, and a delicate balance is knocked sideways in Tristan’s precarious world.
Told with narrative poetry, dialogue and song, The Long Trick is a new play about one man’s protest against gentrification and what happens when ideas go beyond our control.
Marietta Kirkbride has been a Pentabus Theatre Young Writer and a writer-on-attachment at Bristol Old Vic. Nel Crouch is Director of multi-award-winning company Bucket Club. She has been a BBC Performing Arts Fund Fellow at Tobacco Factory Theatres and a Jerwood Assistant Director at the Young Vic.
Praise for Marietta’s The Orator:“Suspense, wit, poignancy and real angst... A play for our times.”- Stage Talk Magazine ★★★★
