    Fat Roland, Developed with The Lowry.

    Commissioned by The Lowry for Week 53 Festival 2018.

    Fat Roland works in a record shop but the front door hasn’t chimed for years. Amid the cobwebbed racks and fading album sleeves, he faces his 45th birthday alone.

    He makes his own entertainment, literally shattering the Frisbee-vinyl world record, until he hits his unimpressed teenage doppelganger in the eye. Is this sudden hallucination a mirage, an omen, or simply – thank goodness – a customer?

    Surrounded by a set built entirely from cartoons, Fat Roland’s one-man show is a hilarious and touching spoken word comedy about music, loneliness and not-quite-teenage kicks.
