The Life & Loves of a Nobody – new show finds beautiful in the seemingly ordinary

Third Angel and Sheffield Theatres present
The Life & Loves of a Nobody
Thursday 21 + Friday 22 May,
Arts Centre Washington

Following its premiere in Sheffield last year, The Life & Loves of a Nobody is now entertaining audiences on a national tour.

Rachel always wanted to be a star. Rachel wanted to run away with the circus. And have her name in lights. And escape from this house. And she dreamed of the future.

But people can be ugly. The closer they are the uglier they get. And there’s nobody closer to yourself than yourself. Life is a juggling act. Love is a highwire. Try to do both at once, and it's a long way down. But even if the act goes wrong, you can still be famous for the fall.

This visually stunning show about an ordinary woman journeys along a tightrope wire of dreams and realities, exploring the differences between the future we want to create for ourselves and the legacy that we leave behind.

With beguiling staging and beautifully crafted moments, addressing the ideas of destiny, celebrity, beauty and fame, this brand new show asks the question: how far will someone go to achieve their dreams, and at what cost?

The Life & Loves of a Nobody is a Sheffield Theatres and Third Angel co-production. Written by Third Angel Co-Artistic Director Rachael Walton, with contributions from award-winning writer and Third Angel artist Chris Thorpe, the show is performed by Rachael Walton and Nick Chambers.

Third Angel is a critically acclaimed company, creating theatre that is challenging, energetic and engaging about everyday people and life. Recent successes include What I Heard About The World and Cape Wrath.

The Life & Loves of a Nobody is on at Arts Centre Washington, Biddick Lane, Fatfield, Washington.  NE38 8AB on Thursday 21 + Friday 22 May, 7.30pm.  Tickets are £8.50 / £6 (conc) and are available from or by calling 0191 219 3455.
