Love Through Double Glazing

Love Through Double Glazing

Something special about our latest production...

As a response to the coronavirus pandemic, Love Through Double Glazing has been created especially for care homes, day centres and other settings where residents have needed to stay isolated. The show is staged entirely outside (with windows closed), but viewed from the inside where it’s warm, cosy and, most importantly, safe.

About the show

Florence has a little white dog, a trolley full of tricks and a no-nonsense attitude. When visitors come to her care home, she's the first on the scene and the most in the know. So when (over-enthusiastic) Geoff the armchair fitness instructor, (over-pompous) Maurice the chef de cuisine  and (overly clean) Keith the window cleaner arrive ready for work, Florence is waiting in the wings to disrupt their day.

Funny, cheeky and unashamedly silly, Love Through Double Glazing brings you clowning, music, food fights, bubbles and ballet, even a real life dog, creating the ultimate armchair enjoyment  – all from the safety of your window seat.

Love Through Double Glazing is written and performed by Cirque du Soleil clown performer Sean Kempton, Artistic Director of Vamos Theatre Rachael Savage, and Norah, the fluffy white dog, a veteran of stage and screen.

Love Through Double Glazing is a co-commission with London International Mime Festival. Worcestershire touring in 2021 is supported by The Prime Foundation, and the 2020 development and pilot were supported using public funding by Arts Council England, with additional support from Creative Scotland, Sir Barry Jackson Trust, Richard Cadbury Charitable Trust, Glencora Fund and through Divisional Funds from Worcestershire and Warwickshire County Councils.

Reviews

Love through Double Glazing made us make us laugh more than we have laughed in a very long time.

Richard White, Director, Stanfield Care Home

I liked the old lady with the dog and the bubbles and I enjoyed the cake

Bill, Arden House

Briliant, very professional and so well organised. The guys loved the dog, it was very funny and we were laughing out loud...

Arden House Care Home, Leamington Spa

He's a cheeky young man, but if I  were younger he would not know what had hit him.

Sheila, 86, Rushwick Care Home

I haven’t laughed so much for ages.

Harry, 91, Rushwick Care Home
