‘Dollface’ Review

Sat atop of Castle mound, hidden from the town below by a ring of trees, we bare witness to Marion, the writer who has stopped writing. Thinking aloud on top of the hill, and with an affinity to friends with names beginning with M, we start to piece together exactly what, or who, caused our poet to lay down his pen (or quill as the case may be).

With bits of poetry, puppetry, music and more, the small ensemble bring to life the struggle to create art of any kind, and what it takes to give a little part of yourself to your work, through showing us a man who can no longer bring himself to do such a thing.

Quietly funny and sad in equal parts, this is well worth a watch, and as it is the first piece that i.e. have created I’m excited to see what they make next.
