Nuclear Family (three Tragedies And A Satire)

Saturday 18 May 1pm and 3pm
Eastside Projects, 86 Heath Mill Lane, Birmingham, B9 4AR
The first preview performances of a new group of plays written by Heather and Ivan Morison for Mr Clevver, a traveling sculptural artwork in the form of a puppet theatre. An evolving work about lives lived at the edges of society, Mr Clevver has travelled from Tasmania in a 1960s agricultural truck drawing a hand-built box office. Mr Clevver is based on the travelling puppet shows from the unsettling novel, Riddley Walker by Russell Hoban, that is set in a post-nuclear holocaust Kent. Owen Davies will perform Nuclear Family before Mr Clevver takes a wandering tour around the remote settlements of Wales this summer.
