Pay what you feel

Fight in the Dog Ltd present Ticker

When: Saturday 27th July 2019
Time: 6:45pm
Tickets:  Pay What You Feel
Age Recommendation: 16+
Running Time: 1 hour

 Based on a true story about a young man that must confront the unexpected and untimely loss of the person he loved more than anything in the world.

Ticker follows twenty-something Spencer, a Geordie millennial who is deeply in love with the inestimable Gabi. But Spencer’s life is torn apart by Gabi’s untimely - and unexplained - death. How can he even begin to cope with finding himself suddenly a prime suspect and a chief mourner? Themes of outsider grief and loneliness meet black-humour and frank dialogue, exploring male identity, toxic aggression, and how not talking about things can eventually lead to self-destruction.

Written and Performed by Tom Machell and Directed and Developed by Derek Anderson.

We create, produce, and programme new, original work from emerging artists across the performing arts, championing work in Music, Theatre, Comedy and Poetry. We strive to make theatre that is relatable and accessible to all, and are constantly looking for new ways to challenge ourselves, physically, mentally and conceptually – we believe that by challenging ourselves we inevitably challenge the audience, creating engaging and original experiences.
