In a Nutshell

Sitting alone in an empty auditorium, a man explains to an unseen future generation, what live theatre was – reliving moments that had been particularly powerful to him personally and lamenting the loss of real-life connections in a world where nobody is allowed near one another.

With his unique blend of melancholia and self-deprecating humour, Lost Dog’s Ben Duke touches on themes of loneliness and isolation, the loss of human connections, and in particular the temporary community of strangers that make up a theatre audience.  Half eulogy, half lecture, In a Nutshell questions what is real in life, if we cannot share it together in real life.

Originally conceived in the early days of the pandemic when it was unimaginable, our single-shot short film In a Nutshell envisages a world in which theatres will never open again.
