Endless featuring N:Dless
Theatre company Trifle Gathering Productions are back on tour with their bravest theatre project to date, Endless featuring N:Dless coming to Theatre Royal Plymouth Tuesday 30 April – Saturday 4 May.
Two young men beneath the strip lights of Dartington University bar. Dressed in their dad’s suits and fusing Celtic music with wasp drone recordings, this delusional duo wasn’t destined for much. But following a rocky road of self-discovery involving a synthesizer, women band members and lots of music practice, they re-formed and quickly became one of the most influential electronic pioneers of the 20th century.
N:Dless were thrust onto the electronic music scene with chart topping hits such as ‘Penguin in a Sparrows Nest’ and ‘We’re Ripe for the Restroom’. Their debut album ‘Fur Coats in the Desert’ did really, really well and they toured a small section of the globe.
Following an unexpected spilt in 1998, fans were left free falling. No explanation and many unanswered questions… until now.
The show, a comedy tale about the reuniting of a fictional 90s electronic band, merges live music, comedy, pop videos and documentary interviews. Endless has been written and produced by Trifle’s core team Kyla Goodey, (Ubu Karoke, Kneehigh and 100: UnEarth, WildWorks) and Sally Crooks (The Trench, Bodmin)
The show is a ‘coming of middle age’ music documentary for the stage. It’s not Spinal Tap, Top of the Pops or the Bros Documentary but if you liked those you might like this and even if you didn’t like those you still might like this.
Kyla Goodey, Trifle Gathering Productions Artistic Director said: “The reality TV/documentary format for this project stems from our two unashamed passions: reality TV and the effect of fame on the ego, we wanted to explore these in our own unique way. We came up with the idea of creating a fictional band which would give plenty of opportunity for comedy as well as a way of exploring some more sensitive topics.”
Tickets are priced from £15 and can be booked online at www.theatreroyal.com or by calling the Theatre Royal Plymouth Box Office on 01752 267222.
