"I wonder what it's like to breathe up there, in that big helmet - how loud his breath must be when the whole universe is so quiet?"
@ Bush Bazaar - The bush theatre with theatre delicatessen - London, july 2012
devised by les foules and company
THE PLAY: It's 1969, Mississippi. As recently departed Augusta C. Whitfield journeys to her final resting place, her belongings and possession languish in limbo. Six characters riff sweetly on the business of death.
An immersive work devised specifically to be performed in the stairwell of The Bush Theatre as part of Theatre Delicatessen's festival, Bush Bazaar.
"While mounting the staircase I found myself in the midst of a 1960s drama entitled Boxed & Bagged. I was gently guided up and down the stairs by the actors who masterfully told their story, played music and dealt with the confused and curious passers-by who were using the space simply (or perhaps naively?) to get from one floor to the next." ★★★★-What's On Stage
"This was one of the more satisfying of experiences...[Boxed and Bagged] transports the backstage staircase into the American deep south.” ★★★★-The Telegraph
