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.
