Vanessa's life is science. Fact based, evidence led, no nonsense, no monsters. But when a photograph surfaces showing something in Loch Ness, she must embark on a very personal research project. The multi award-winning company Bucket Club create a "magical, melancholy world" (The List) featuring an extinct fish, a missing father, and breath-taking live electronic sound.
Bucket Club are an associate company at Farnham Maltings, and the first recipients of the Farnham Maltings Fellowship. They make work that is playful, uses live music in innovative ways and explores how stories are told. Their first show, Lorraine & Alan, won the Brighton Fringe Award for Excellence and a Musical Theatre Network Award for Innovation at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe. Other shows include The Beasts, an outdoor show for families, and Launch Party, a play for village halls. They bring Fossils to New York following a run at the Edinburgh Fringe, where it was shortlisted for the Brighton Fringe Award for Excellence.
