Raymondo and Sparky have been locked in the cellar underneath their house for six years. An accident involving a pigeon enables their escape. But do they have the requisite skills to survive a haphazard, cruel world? A story of brotherhood, loss, incarceration, escape, survival, desire, art and resilience. A story about the shittiness of others, the kindness of others, and Love. Simply told by a woman with a microphone and an atmospheric live score of guitars, loops and keyboard, Raymondo is a raw, dark, funny and tender lyrical narrative that will sear through your defences straight to your heart.Featuring music by Marcus Hamblett.
Raymondo premiered at Pulse Festival 2014, played at Edinburgh Fringe 2014 as part of Escalator East to Edinburgh, then in 2015 as part of the British Council Showcase, and toured the UK in 2015.
