Description

A mother dies. A boy eats an ice lolly and freezes internally. A father cries yellow tears into snow. A lover cleans urine from his grandmother’s favourite carpet. Performer and bedroom foley artist Guy Woods tells the story of a cold boy’s adolescence. 'Beautifully written and performed', 'Excellent storytelling, so engaging and a great use of multimedia sound', 'Love the piss' (Audience Reviews from performance at the Tron Theatre, 2023). Puddles & Amazons is a queer coming-of-age story of grief, male tenderness and fluids. Featuring live audio mixing, mild audience interaction, and water. MadeInScotlandShowcase.com
