The Scarlet WWWeb
About Big Telly: “A marvellously quick-witted, confident demonstration of collective teamwork.” Irish Theatre Magazine,
Melmoth the Wanderer “Once again, the director Zoe Seaton demonstrates that theatre can be inventive and intelligent without neglecting its fundamental duty to entertain.” Sunday Times
“They say there is a thin line between insanity and genius and Big Telly's adaptation of Spike Milligan's novel Puckoon demonstrates how very thin that line is, and how very easy it is to jump back and forth across that line with a silly grin on one's face.” British Theatre Guide
The Scarlet WWWeb: A life on the line and a life online. Witchcraft, wifi and wildly imaginative theatre (And maybe some chickens…). Through to the next level.
Two stories a century apart, one about the last witch burned in Ireland, the other about internet infidelity. Two worlds with common ground, and two couples who don’t know each other as well as they thought they did...Economic pressure, pipe dreams and a belief in made up worlds link rural 19th Century Ireland with today’s technology driven domain but a firewall hasn’t been invented yet which protects us from ourselves. What a tangled web we weave when first we go online and create a new profile...double life, double trouble, double you double you double you dot.
