Former Senior Lecturer in Theatre Arts at Middlesex, Desmond Truscott, and recent graduate James Cross have collaborated to create a piece of imaginative theatre, which will be performed at VAULT festival from 15 -19 February 2017.
Based on the experience of moving to London, Scenes from an Urban Gothic is about a young man who sets off on a journey to right a past wrong and encounters a number of difficulties on the way.
There is no speech in the performance with the story being told entirely through James’ actions and engagements.
The performance at VAULT festival follows a critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe as part of the University's Theatre Arts Exchange in August:
“Utterly mysterious and absorbing experience. This creative marvel exudes originality… An astounding experience which sets the imagination free,” stated the Ed Fringe Review.
“A remarkable piece of physical theatre … a pleasure, a riot and a marvel to behold from start to finish. An absolute delight,” TV Bomb
