Judy Norman has been on the road with Pipeline Theatre in their celebrated piece, Spillikin, since November. Spilikin tells a story of the love between a lady and a humanoid robot, and is a collaboration between Pipeline and Engineered Arts.
The first leg of the tour finished at the end of November in Danby after garnering some brilliant reviews. Praise for Judy includes:
“Judy Norman’s Sally is exquisitely observed, thought provoking and belligerent.” Northern Echo
“But let’s not forget Judy Norman as the older Sally, her nuanced performance from rage and confusion to childlike adoration and wistfulness is stunning. Her final scene as she emerges wizened, shaking and barely able to speak is heartbreaking – I had to look away.”
West Briton ★★★★★
“Judy Norman was excellent as Sally, desperately trying to retain her memories and still clinging to her youth.”
Stage Talk ★★★★
The second leg of the tour will kick off at Plymouth Theatre Royal on 31st January, and visits the Pleasance, Islington for a week in March.
