Show 1: Self Titled
On January 21st 2017 Cuckoo’s Egg presented their first show, a self-titled promenade theatre piece at Unity Works, Wakefield.
The show centred around the recently departed Caretaker of the building, Fred Shearsmith, and used a suitcase of his belongings from across the decades and a family tree he had been working on as a starting point for a journey around the building and through it and Fred’s history.
We were thrilled that the show completely sold out, with 5 separate audiences enjoying the 70 minute performance. Although you really ‘had to be there’ to fully appreciate the way the space was used and the scope of the story, we hope the above photos will give you an idea of how the show worked.
Thanks to the brilliant audiences that came along and supported us and to the brilliant cast who were a pleasure to work with!
