After being diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease, Ted goes on the trip of a lifetime… and so does his pet fish. As the disease starts to cause his mobility to degenerate, Ted rushes to experience a world outside his comfort zone; from the markets of Lille to the romance of Venice. Humorous, heart-warming and uplifting, CELL features charming puppetry, physical theatre and an original musical score to tell the story of one man’s final adventure to create enough memories to last a lifetime. CELL is the outcome of a new collaboration between two of the most exciting young companies in the UK. Having lost their Grandfathers to the disease, the subject of MND is close to the hearts of those involved. CELL is a visually inventive, beautiful show that shifts seamlessly between varying forms of puppetry to engage audiences with a complex medical condition in a positive way. The show does not focus on MND, rather the personal journey of one man, in an uplifting and humorous way. Tickets are £10, available from Bridport Arts Centre (01308 424204 / www.bridport-arts.com), Box Office Coffee at the Lyric and on the door on the night, if available.
