Lived somewhere your whole life, and then you need to pack up and leave ? Who takes
over your land, who lives in your house, and what happens to the cows ?
Touring village halls and community venues since 2004 with their memorable and distinctive
shows, this company has always asked audiences what they wanted in the next Old Spot
show. Unsurprisingly this produced a huge list of everything that bothers just about
everyone, the only link being that these suggestions could only have come from country
dwellers, in all their variety. From villager to incomer, from Farmer to Trucker,
from landowner to tenant and from old to young the company try to give everyone their
say. In a series of dramatic monologues and duets, a day in the life of the atypical
average country dweller is stared at through the old Spot lens.
The show is self contained, as we carry our own lights and staging with us, and comes
in under two hours including interval.
We need a 5 metre square with a 3 metre ceiling height and two standard plugs sockets
on separate circuits: we bring our own lights and staging with us. No sound equipment
is required. A smoke machine will be used as well as possibly several devices for
making loud bangs.
We need a three hour get in time and a hot meal two hours before show-time for four
persons. The get out or strike is between an hour and an hour and half after the
audience has left the building. The company is 3 performers and 1 technician.
We will provide such flyers and posters that are deemed reasonable to each venue,
as well as JPEG publicity images, press releases and a marketing guide for first
