Linda is a self-confessed ‘collector’. She has all the necessities: broken umbrellas to match any outfit, unopened Amazon parcels delivered in 2012, shoes that don’t fit but were a bargain at 75 percent off and trainers because, one day, she will definitely take up running. To add to her collection there is Toby, an affectionately named rat who has taken up residence in her home.
With the arrival of Jonathan, a man who can’t sleep if the sponge is in the wrong place by the kitchen sink, comes a more life-changing situation than Linda could ever have imagined. The journey that follows is one of love, loss and an infatuation with Stevie Wonder memorabilia.
A poignant new play by Ellen Robertson, Nesting is a funny and moving look at compulsive behaviour and finding love in the most unlikely of places.
Nesting is also touring to village halls, rural venues and arts centres. A list of dates and venues will be announced soon.
Watermill outreach touring is generously supported by The Dr Mortimer and Theresa Sackler Foundation.
