Project History

Fuel presents The Receipt

By Will Adamsdale 

A man flips out and searches the city for the owner of a receipt. Is he a hero, or an idiot? 

A little story told by two men, a filing cabinet and a Moog. 

Following the success of his 2004 Perrier Award-winning Jackson’s Way, Will Adamsdale collaborated again with sonic artist and performer Chris Branch on a new theatre project, building on their work on Filter’s Faster (sell-out at BAC, Lyric Hammersmith and Brits Off-Broadway, New York). 

Commissioned by and developed at BAC. Selected for the This Way Up 2005 touring programme.

"**** It’s a real cracker… This is a show that makes you yearn to get off the hamster wheel and make a bid for freedom.  "

The Guardian 

"**** A superb, almost Gogol-like meditation on the fate of the little man in the big 21st-century city. "

The Scotsman

"**** Funny, inventive and often rather beautiful. "

Evening Standard

"A charming and original devised piece... delightful characters."
