One sugar and a splash of milk, a pair of steel cap boots and a good night’s kip… Through a collection of true life stories, Sugar? explores what comfort means to us all, and how people are forced to adapt when these comforts aren’t there anymore. By focusing on the issues faced by homeless people, Sugar? explores how you sleep at night when you don’t have a bed, what to do when you need the loo, and the importance of companionship, amongst other topics.
Sugar? is a beautiful portrayal of the very real words said by very real people. They’ve created a performance that heightened the importance of voices that are not often heard, and made them memorable. Can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
Crofters Rights, Bristol 2019
In July 2019, we performed the full length pilot version of Sugar? over two nights at Crofters Rights. We sold out both nights and raised £500 for the Bristol Methodist Centre – a charity which offers sanctuary and support to homeless people. We received incredible feedback and knew the Sugar? the journey couldn’t stop there… (July, 2019)
‘An insightful piece into the lives of a few Bristolians, thought provoking and told with cracking humour, you’ll love it!’
We performed Sugar? at Bedlam Fair on the (rather soggy) streets of Bath to the passing general public. Performing it on the streets gave the piece an authentic, raw meaning. (June, 2019)
We debuted Sugar? as part of the annual ‘Open Stage’ event at the Bristol Old Vic. Performing for the first time as a company on Bristol’s most prestigious stage was a fantastic experience and the best start to our summer tour. (May, 2019)
