After being diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease, Ted goes on the trip of a lifetime...and so does his pet fish.
As the disease starts to cause his mobility to degenerate, Ted rushes towards experiencing a world that is outside of his comfort zone; from the streets of Lille to the romance of Venice.
Humorous, heart-warming and hopeful, CELL features charming puppetry, physical theatre and an original score to tell the story of one man’s final adventure to create enough memories to last a lifetime.
Nominated for a Peter Brook Award, CELL is the outcome of a new collaboration between two of the most exciting young companies in the UK. Having lost their Grandfathers to the disease, the subject of MND is close to the hearts of those involved.
