A thoroughly human play about loneliness and desire, Dirty Rascals’ debut production Of Nymphs and Men tells of story of two people struggling to fit their ideas of the “perfect” life with the reality of living.
Alex used to be a dreamer, but her heart’s just been broken and the cracks are running a bit too deep. Andrew used to be a dreamer too, but reality hits back hard and he’s tired of rolling with the punches. When you can’t fight, what’s left but to run?
In a remote wood, two very different paths cross for the first time. As Andrew and Alex help each other to pick up the pieces, they discover a hunger for lives they’ve never led. Slowly, the morning mist rolls in and myths begin to take root in the forest glade…
For our first show, we’ve set ourselves the challenge of “writing” an unscripted piece, relying (almost) solely on the creativity of our actors to devise the content of the story. The performance will take the form of a structured improvisation – our actors will use their in-depth knowledge of the characters to embellish the narrative with detail, colour and life. Each show will be a different journey and we’d like you to join us for the ride.
Dirty Rascals is a London-based theatre company devoted to making work that is living, untidy and human. They think that there is no such thing as a spotless one-size-fits-all way to make theatre. We explore, we play, we get messy.
