Thingummy Bob

Bob has lost something important, something that might make him happy, he just can't remember where he left it.  It might be in his old house but he's in a wheelchair and can't make the journey alone and none of the staff in the care home will take him. Read more …

The daughter of an old friend comes to visit and decides to rescue Bob.

She knows the masters of disguise and derring-do who can pull off this caper but they’ll have to move quickly before Bob forgets everything, including them.

The critical consensus

Does not duck the downside but yet celebrates what remains as we face the final curtain.

****(*)Bill Dunlop, Edinburgh Guide, 31/10/2015

A play of laughter and forgetting.

***(*)(*)Neil Cooper, Coffee-Table Notes, 02/11/2015

Oller’s production is a sheer delight that handles very serious subjects like ageing, loss, illness and memory with sensitivity and humour.

****(*)Amy Taylor, The Reviews Hub, 03/11/2015

A remarkably focused and entertaining production which lightly touches on heavy themes, and leaves little confusion in its wake.
