The Nuffield Theatre at Lancaster University Presents:

LOW LIFE - Blind Summit

8pm, Saturday 9 May 2009

£10 / £7 concessions

A truly unmissable cabaret of people with hang-ups and puppets with hang-overs...

Inspired by the short stories and poems of Charles Bukowski, the "Poet Laureate of Skid Row", puppet innovators Blind Summit take us to a desperate, gin-soaked bar full of deadbeats and losers. Making no attempt to conceal themselves, Blind Summit's puppeteers skilfully bring their puppet co-stars to life to tell their dark and drunken stories.

A man dances a love duet with a beer glass, a washed-up starlet drinks to forget, Bud the action-hero-plumber is literally drowning in drink and Jack Belane, tiny private detective, totally screws up a case. These are the characters of the 'Low Life Cabaret', where puppets tell their tales to a soundtrack of the gravelly Tom Waits.

'Mad, bad and beautiful in equal measure.' **** Guardian


'If puppetry is ever to be the next rock 'n' roll, these animators may well be its front men.' ***** Time Out
