ED2011 Theatre Review: The World Holds Everyone Apart, Apart From Us (Stuart Bowden)

With not much more than a few milk crates, a retro keyboard and a loop machine, Stuart Bowden creates a show of such beauty it will take your breath away. Set in the future after an ecological disaster, it tells the story of Avian, whose mission is to save the world from loneliness. His plan is to build a rocket, fly into outer space and find another planet to bring back to keep the earth company. The show is so fragile it’s in constant danger of falling apart, but the playfulness of the writing and the lightness of Stuart’s performance hold it together. Full of wit and charm, this is low-fi DIY storytelling theatre at its very best.

Underbelly, 4 – 28 Aug (not 15), 2.55pm (3.55pm), £8.00 – £10.00, fpp312.
