CINEMA: Reel Life

9th April 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Reel Life – a play by Alys Metcalf
Directed by Adam Lenson 
A Folio, ETT and Pound Arts Production

At the edge of a remote riverbank, two unlikely strangers meet. Jo, a children’s writer, is teaching herself to fish. Mark, a dryly eccentric recluse, has come to practice his daily Tai Chi. In a different time and space, a lone stranger addresses a partner from a once happy relationship. 

Performed and filmed live on location in Wiltshire, exclusively for a digital theatre audience, Reel Life grapples with themes of recovery, re-connection and loss – and what really lies beneath the surface.
