Pickled Republic follows the tragi-comic journey of a few mysterious characters who struggle to find some sense of purpose in their warped world. Whether it be a pickled tomato lamenting in a jar or a forgotten royalty who seeks the unthinkable, each character is trying to calm their anguish before it all ends.
Nobody is graceful when faced with demise. Grace is overrated, anyway.
Relish in an unearthly cross between Eugene Ionesco and The Big Lebowski.
Made possible with support from Creative Scotland (for previous versions of the show) and SURGE.
Thanks go out to Clown Cabaret Scratch Night, Tron Theatre Outside Eyes, and Puppetry Scratch Night where earlier versions of these pieces were performed.
N.B. The show is still in progress. Ruxy will be in residence at SURGE in October 2019 to develop this piece. There will be a free workshop and public sharing at SURGE on 16th October and 1st November respectively, at SURGE.
