Lead Writer and Director Nell Leyshon. Written and performed by Jane Cartwright, Cecilia Gail, Scott Lavene and Gary Pierre
The Vodka Hunters is an intense, ground-breaking site-specific performance about motherhood and fatherhood.
The show is created through a collaboration between award-winning writer/director Nell Leyshon and four “outsider” artists from Bournemouth.
Each of the four performers/writers will have their own space and the audience will move through the rooms and discover their different voices and stories.
The Vodka Hunters is a brand new work born and created in Bournemouth. It is exciting, visceral, funny, and always, but always, honest and truly authentic.
Nell Leyshon is an award-winning playwright and novelist. Her first novel, Black Dirt, was long-listed for the Orange Prize and The Colour of Milk has been published worldwide. She has won an Evening Standard award for her play Comfort me with Apples, and was the first woman to write a play for the Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. She taught creative writing for many years with marginalised communities and is committed to enabling fresh new voices to be heard. She is on the board of the Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
