Something’s off with Reggie’s boyfriend. In a fit of protectiveness(?) he’s just locked him in the bathroom like Rapunzel. Miserable and betrayed, Reggie finds solace in his friends – the hairdryer, drill, radio and toilet paper – as well the life affirming classic Torrent of Rapture.
Wildly romantic, idealized and inaccurate it seems to mirror his life exactly until it becomes clear that having a movie for a therapist is not always a good idea. As his world crumbles around him, Reggie finds his inner superhero emerging victorious from the ruins of his shattered dreams.
Told through bad ballet and puppetry, this is Brief Encounter meets Saving Private Ryan via Monty Python style cinema, film music, animation and live song. Torrents of Rapture fuses these sumptuous elements together as it explores the social, civil and human rights themes celebrating the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women who have fought for LGBT equality over the past 150 years. The show leaves you overwhelmed, singing and shaking with …Torrents of Rapture.
Torrents of Rapture was created by Dugald Ferguson in co-production with Norwich Pride and Norwich Arts Centre. Supported by Arts Council England
