End to End by The Gramophones 15 February UCLan Media Factory
In April 2012 three women made a daring and unusual journey from one end of Great Britain to the other. Trusting only to their resourcefulness and the kindness of strangers they made an 18-day, 874-mile journey from Land’s End to John O’Groats.
They completed their unusual expedition on as many varieties of transport as they possibly could with only one pound per mile to do it.
In End to End they share moments of their journey and their encounters with a host of interesting and unusual characters. This is a story about why we leave places, why we stay and what we imagine of places we have never been to. Invited to travel with the characters the audience will experience a unique journey. Personal stories, told truthfully are threaded through the narrative and transport the audience through surprising twists and turns.
The Gramophones are a theatre company based in Nottingham, who specialise in witty, interactive theatre with a twinkle in its eye. Their work is informed by clowning techniques and as a result is playful, fun and engaging. They place their audiences at the centre of their performances and regard them not only as voyeurs but as players in their work.
The Gramophones visit to Preston is their first show of an extensive tour of the UK in 2013.
