The Miller, London Bridge

SYNOPSIS

A thoroughly human play about loneliness and desire, Dirty Rascals' debut production Of Nymphs and Men tells of story of two people struggling to fit their ideas of the "perfect" life with the reality of living.

 

Alex used to be a dreamer, but her heart's just been broken and the cracks are running a bit too deep. Andrew used to be a dreamer too, but reality hits back hard and he's tired of rolling with the punches. When you can't fight, what's left but to run?

 

In a remote wood, two very different paths cross for the first time. As Andrew and Alex help each other to pick up the pieces, they discover a hunger for lives they've never led. Slowly, the morning mist rolls in and myths begin to take root in the forest glade...

NOTES

For our first show, we set ourselves the challenge of "writing" an unscripted piece, relying (almost) solely on the creativity of our actors to devise the content of the story. The performance took the form of a structured improvisation  in which Grace and Adam used in-depth knowledge of their characters to embellish their sides of the narrative with detail, colour and life. Each show was a different journey.
