Lost Souls

Three pieces from our original online production re-imagined for the stage, plus the world premier of A Perfect Crime, shown here in Salisbury for the first time.

Lost Souls, produced by Loosely Based Theatre Company, is written by Jayne Woodhouse and will be directed by Calum Robshaw.

The first part of Lost Souls comprises three pieces from the original online production in 2020, which they rehearsed as a company on Zoom and were then recorded by the individual actors.

Now each one has been re-written and re-imagined for the stage, with rehearsal and performance issues constantly adapting to the changing rules around Covid.

The second part is the world premier of a new play, and is being performed here in Salisbury for the first time.

Each of the characters in Lost Souls is struggling in their own, very different, ways to make positive and meaningful human relationships.

Ray, in Beautiful, has lost the only true connection he has ever made, while in Chains, Laura’s seemingly perfect life with her new partner hides a darker and more dangerous reality.

In contrast, Woebot is a humorous take on what might happen when we let technology control our emotional needs.

Finally the longer play, A Perfect Crime, is a new black comedy, where a couple find the pressures of lockdown lead them to uncover some disturbing things about each other.
