Fuel presents Low Life

A man dances a love duet with a beer glass, a diva drinks to forget, Bud the plumber drowns behind the bar and Jack Belane, tiny private detective, totally screws up a case.

Taking the short stories and poems of Charles Bukowski as inspiration, they created an alcohol-soaked world of deadbeats and losers.

Fuel produced Low Life at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2007, followed by a UK tour and a British Council supported tour of China.

Developed at BAC and The Junction, Cambridge as part of Escalator. Funded by Arts Council England.

Shortlisted for a Total Theatre Award
