The Receipt

“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 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 collaborates 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.

Creative Team

Created and performed by Will Adamsdale and Chris Branch.
