Ablutions

Picture yourself as a bartender, sipping top-shelf whiskey and watching your customers descend into nightly oblivion. Your heart is broken by the world around you and, leaving the whiskey aside, you hatch a devious, unthinkable plan of escape…
Ablutions has been devised by FellSwoop Theatre, first commissioned by Bristol Old Vic Ferment and supported by Arts Council England.  Ablutions has just finished its run at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe and toured the UK between 2013 and 2015.

    What a wonderful performance at the Garrick Sat 13th and what a pity there wasn’t a larger audience to appreciate the skill and passion of the actors. A moving mix of humour and sadness – we were spellbound. Many sincere thanks to all involved. Let’s hope the Festival committee have you back again next year if possible

    Certainly the best thing I have seen at the festival. An immersive – at times torturous- insight into the mind of a disillusioned barman. Flawless performances from all invoved; gritty theatre that does not seek to placate or satiate its audience. Thank you

    Skype has launched its web-dependent consumer beta on the entire world, after starting
    it largely in the United states and You.K. previously
    this calendar month. Skype for Online also now works with Chromebook and Linux for immediate text messaging connection (no video and voice however,
    those require a plug-in installing).

    The expansion from the beta provides assistance for an extended listing of languages to assist strengthen that worldwide user friendliness
