About the event
Ovalhouse begin 2018 with another dynamic and innovative season of shows plus four new FiRST BiTES. For the first time, Owen Calvert-Lyons, Ovalhouse’s Head of Theatre & Artist Development, will be directing a brand-new show Random Selfies by Olivier Award-winning playwright Mike Kenny, as part of a three-year research project into child loneliness.
If I lived in the middle of nowhere, you could understand it. If I was halfway up a mountain. Or at the side of a lake. And I had no brothers or sisters. Well, you could understand it. Couldn’t you. If I said I was lonely. But I’m not any of that. I live in a flat. In one of the biggest cities on the planet. I’m never alone. But I am lonely.
Random Selfies is performed on a digitally animated set, bringing to life the vivid imagination of ten-year-old Loretta; a lonely girl in a busy world. This is an exciting new play written by Olivier Award-winning playwright Mike Kenny and designed by illustrator Rachana Jadhav.
