The Travelling Squirrel
By Robert Lord
Directed by Susan Wilson
5 September – 2 October
Circa One

United by love. Divided by a squirrel.

From Robert Lord, the author of the award-winning and much loved Joyful & Triumphant, comes The Travelling Squirrel, a romp through the fickle nature of the entertainment industry.

Protagonist Bart compares his struggles as a writer to those of Roger the squirrel, a misunderstood painter. Hilarious and packed with larger-than-life characters, this play is a testament to Lord’s ability to write brilliant comedy.

A satire tempered with deep affection, The Travelling Squirrel depicts a dangerous world in which fame and fortune are always temptingly just around the corner

“This is surely one of Lord’s funniest plays, just as it is one of the most moving” – Philip Mann

“For two decades, Robert Lord’s plays astonished and entertained theatre audiences with their sharp satire and flamboyant farce.” - David O’Donnell
