“This wee’un reminds me of you at his age, Sharron; he’s got the Devil dancing in his eyes!”

Jamie was 15 when his Granda Frankie died, and his mum stopped coming out of her room. Left to his own devices he’s been spending more and more time online - scrolling through the digital realm of pixels, kilobytes and the occasional adult chatroom. But when he meets ‘Windsor_56’ everything changes.

Combining theatre, original live music and animation The Devil Danced in Our Eyes is a funny and moving one-person show that explores sexuality and the effects of mental illness on a family.

“This is a multi-layered show that will sing, speak and loop itself into your consciousness.” Audience Feedback
