Ricochet Theatre presents


  • Show Information

Ricochet Theatre presents a double bill of monologues navigating grief: Intricate Rituals by Seth Douglas and The Same Rain That Falls on Me by Logan Jones. Witness two intimate contrasting monologues that balance dark humour and touching pathos in equal measure.

Intricate Rituals

Siken is your average gay university student – witty, geeky and hopelessly in love with her straight best friend. But when callous, senseless tragedy unexpectedly strikes her life, Siken is forced to confront herself as grief turns her down a darker and increasingly supernatural path.

Deftly moving from comedy to tragedy, Intricate Rituals explores grief, unrequited love and the lasting effects of a closeted adolescence – and throws some interesting facts about bugs in there for good measure. Don’t miss this vulnerable and urgent performance directed by Ella McKeown with Maria Cook playing the role of Siken.

The Same Rain that Falls on Me

It’s the hottest day of the year and Alice is travelling home to say an untimely goodbye. One that will leave a hole in her life forever. The Same Rain That Falls On Me considers the connection between the effects of climate change on the planet and the effects of bereavement on a family, especially when that bereavement is avoidable. It’s a powerful and witty monologue about family, grief, and finding hope in the face of overwhelming uncertainty.

Directed by Jay Seldon and performed by Ella McKeown, The Same Rain That Falls On Me received the Pick of the Bedford Fringe award in July 2021 on Ricochet Theatre’s first ever tour.

Exeter Northcott Theatre and Le Navet Bete's Dick Whittington artwork. Background: a foggy panorama photo of the city of London, with iconic buildings such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, and St Paul's Cathedral. The cityscape is washed over with a burgundy haze. Foreground: A black and white cat (black body, white neck collar, white paws) looks towards the cityscape and we see them in near silhouette. They are stood on a yellow-brick path, with green grassy hills either side of them. On the hills, grey rats with large red eyes. On the left hand side of the cat, a rat holds a stereotypical hobo sack on a stick. At the top of the artwork, gold text reads: 'Exeter Northcott Theatre and Le Navet Bete present Dick Whittington.' Another group of rats with large red eyes are playing around the letters in 'Dick Whittington'. A cat paw icon replaces the dot on top of the letter 'I' in 'Dick', and a block of cheese replaces the dot on top of the second letter 'I' in 'Whittington.
