You love her. She loves me. I love you. Its seaside Britain in the wake of war, in a tale derived from Shakespeare’sTwelfth Night, and Violet – or is it Vince? –is confused. Her mother and father seek refuge in strong tea – but before their very eyes, rock’n’roll is brewing. Only a boat full of skiffle players can untangle the knot – but will they ever reach Blighty? Slapping a lick of rainbow paint on monochrome 50’s England, Cartoon de Salvo presents their acclaimed tall tale of games around the washing line.
“Unflagging buoyancy and imagination, humour and intelligence are Cartoon de Salvo’s hallmarks… By the end of the evening my face was aching from smiling… you would be hard pushed to find more charm or expressive versatility anywhere.”
