The Loons Circus Theatre Company
Written by Joe Bennett
In the fens of Eastern England they used to trap
ducks in netting tunnels.
The mouth of a tunnel would be wide and tall and
ducks would swim happily into it feeling no sense of threat. But as
the tunnel went on it turned round corners and became lower
and narrower. The ducks paddled on until they turned a final corner
and found themselves in a little netted enclosure where a
duck-catcher sat patiently waiting.
In Trapped a barman, a
butcher's daughter and a contortionist tell the stories of their
lives. They do not know each other, and the unique and random
details of what happened to happen to each of them have only one
thing in common.
