The Life and Loves of a Nobody at The Albany


Third Angel and Dep Arts present The Life & Loves of a Nobody, devised by Rachael Walton and Alexander Kelly, at The Albany in Deptford, South-East London, from 3 to 7 February 2015 for a strictly limited run.

The piece will be performed by Rachael Walton and Nick Chambers and will feature scenic design by Andrew Stephenson, lighting by Mark Howland and sound design by Ivan Mack.

Synopsis: "Third Angel examines our obsession with fame, fortune and celebrity in an extraordinary telling of an ordinary story. In their distinctive style, Third Angel co-founder Rachael Walton and performer Nick Chambers create the world of Rachel, a character we never meet, with string and scissors, light, shade, and paper butterflies.
