Angeleta and Etelvina
Original illustration by Simon Said.
Inspired by the main characters of the play You and Me by Little Soldier productions, Angeleta and Etelvina is a bitter sweet comedy with beautiful puppetry, shadow puppetry and original music. It has been developed at the Little Angel Theatre during HATCH Festival 2014 and FIRSTS FESTIVAL 2015.
Amongst the clutter of boxes, Etelvina is packing the last of Angeleta's things, ready for her to go to the care home. The two sisters have grown old, bitter and flatulent together, but now Angeleta's Dementia is becoming too much for Etelvina to bear; her hallucinations are getting worse, and she's been attacking the hairdresser with scissors again. As Etelvina packs, she shares memories with her sister and they go on a journey through the clouded past.
