Latitude: The Bloody Ballad featuring Mary and The Missing Fingers review
- Credit: Nick Butcher
A crazy theatrical performance of murder mayhem, with original live music inspired by Rockabilly, Blues and Americana.
The show focused on Mary - a girl with a dark past who felt stuck in a dead-end town. When she fell in love for the first time she found herself dragged on a journey of murder, lust and carnage.
Set around Memorial Day celebrations in 1950s America, this show was backed by the pounding rhythms and catchy songs of the show's band 'The Missing Fingers'.
First developed through Welsh Theatre Iolo's emergent artist scheme in 2010, cast included author Lucy Rivers, Hannah McPake, Oliver Wood, Dan Messore, and Tom Cottle.
This performance was violently graphic yet surprisingly enjoyable, with a realistic scene of Mary in handcuffs having her finger cut off by her lover, and the aftermath of blood running down her chest onto her white nightgown. The setting was haunting, but with a sense of black comedy after hearing the sounds of laughter from the audience.
