    The Life & Loves of a Nobody

    Rachel always wanted to be a star. Rachel wanted to run away with the circus. And have her name in lights. And escape from this house. And she dreamed of the future.

    But people can be ugly. The closer they are, the uglier they get. And there’s nobody closer to yourself than yourself. Life is a juggling act. Love is a highwire. Try to do both at once, and it's a long way down. But even if the act goes wrong, you can still be famous for the fall. 


    Internationally celebrated theatre makers Third Angel have created a visually stunning exploration of the gap between our dreams and our realities, and how we decide whose life stories deserve to be told.



    'the visual payoff [is] sublime... It is well worth getting to know Rachel, whoever she is' The Guardian



    'really beguiles... full of beautifully intimate moments that stick in the mind for long after the lights come up' â˜…★★★ Exeunt Magazine



    'Third Angel have succeeded in turning an unremarkable story into a thoroughly remarkable performance' â˜…★★★ The Public Reviews



    'artistic, fearless and delicate... a beautifully-crafted, innovative piece of contemporary art. Third Angel is a company to seek out and follow for their poignant comment on society.' â˜…★★★ The Upcoming
