Sam Parker and Ryan Wilce’s latest collaboration Dreckly at The Phoenix on Sunday 4th August at
A future where the UK is split up and full of disarray doesn’t seem
Why has the bridge been blown up? Will Cornwall survive under the reign of the Cornish Nationalist Movement? Is Plymouth really just Torquay but with a sizeable lighthouse?
Both Sam and Ryan are very passionate about creating work that has the South West at the heart of it. ‘Dreckly’ brings a gritty storyline, characters with great depth and with much more to the story than laughing at the character with the ‘Janner’ accent.
This particular piece from Sam comes from frustration with the current state of public discourse. What conversations we’re having, the way we’re having them and the ineffective results of said conversations. That felt particularly relevant to the South West, given the fact that people who live elsewhere in the UK often seem to be on a different wavelength when it comes to key issues. We think that it is because of this inability to communicate with each other, that we are far more susceptible to the blurring of fact and fiction by those in power.
