Ali is alone, but she isn’t lonely. She’s fine. She doesn’t know where she is, but honestly, she’s fine. She has a microphone and loop station and feels content filling time with roleplays and soundscapes, summoned from her own memories and voice. She’s fine. But she still talks to ‘Kitty’…
‘Loop’ is the second theatrical production from Theatre In Black. Through an innovative combination of new writing, contemporary performance, and live looping audio, this play offers audiences a charming, candid, and melancholic narrative that guides you through the cycle of loneliness and the steps you can take to overcome it.
Written by Ryan Leder
Performed by and devised with Helen Crevel
Directed by Kathryn King
Produced by Theatre In Black in association with Carbon Theatre
Supported by Arts Council England, ARC Stockton, The Core at Corby Cube, Talking Birds’ Nest Residency, New Perspectives, Unity Theatre Trust, and The Travers Foundation.
We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at Forest Arts, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets will be available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
All money collected will help us pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay by leaving a cash donation in the envelope on your seat.
