Gramophones Theatre Company in 'End to End'

25th May 2013

This is the second show which some of the Highland promoters admired in last year's Fringe and invited to tour our venues. It's a delightful and imaginative entertainment performed by three wacky young ladies who hitched from Land's End to John O' Groats and then turned their experience into a play. Now they're retracing their steps and performing the piece in 22 venues en route. It's great fun and full of visual surprises and humorous anecdotes.

Joanne Eltringham writing about the performance at Boxton:
Very often we find the most moving and captivating tales are the ones that come from real events, happening to ordinary people, about everyday life and this is what makes End to End, the story of three women's inspiring and often daring journey from one end of Great Britain to the other truly sensational! Taking advantage of their freedom at a stage in their lives when so many of their friends had decided to settle down and in the hope of waking up their spirit of adventure, it's an exceptional and inspiring journey of trust, risks and chance encounters.

At a racy pace we are introduced to the varied and often unusual modes of transport they use along the way, including one very moving moment on a micro light, when the clever use of simple props and projection made me feel like I was soaring through the clouds high in the sky with them! Maps are used to plot the journey, giving us a sense of speed and urgency as the days are passing by and the end is in sight. The music, which played out from their gramophone, was soft and subtle and created the perfect atmosphere to accompany each stage of the journey. A special mention must be made to the beautiful song they play at the end of their performance, something lovely they had collected along the way!
