Lobster Frock Theatre Collaborates With The Local Community On BLUEPRINTS MUSEUM Project

Drawing on the extraordinary real-life experiences of South London women, it is a powerful, local story of hope, courage, and humanity.

MATILDA THE MUSICAL Announces West End Extension; See New Footage From the Show!

Tackling the themes of ageing, isolation and loneliness, Lobster Frock theatre company, in collaboration with The Albany and Age UK, presents Blueprints Museum at MOCA London in Peckham from Wednesday 15 until Saturday 18 March 2023.

Blueprints Museum is a devised interactive experience about mothers and how they screw us up (SORRY save us). Directed by Grace O'Keefe (director of the 5* sell-out show, Bad Teacher), Lobster Frock's new fictional museum adventure is based on their genre-defying digital theatre piece with the same name. Drawing on the extraordinary real-life experiences of South London women, it is a powerful, local story of hope, courage, and humanity - and a heartfelt tribute to mothers.

In the pristine walls of a gallery, a local woman's story unfolds. As an aging woman teeters on the edge of loneliness, the museum backdrop holds the key to her salvation. Explore the seasons of womanhood from birth to elder, uncovering memories to discover her past.

Through surrealist design and immersive theatre, Lobster Frock's multicultural cast will catapult audiences into the dilapidated, remnants of a mystery woman's life to try and answer the question, who is she?

Members of the Lewisham and Southwark communities, aged 65 and older, are working with Director Grace O'Keefe, Lobster Frock's Artistic Director and actress Kirsty Blewett and a further professional actress Rosy Fordham in the spaces at MOCA London to devise Blueprints Museum in collaboration. They are working with designers Emma Lynch and Natalie Johnson with video pieces edited by Matthew Kaltenborn.

Blueprints Museum runs from Wednesday 15 until 18 March 2023 at MOCA London, 113 Bellenden Rd, Peckham, SE15 4QY. All tickets are free, to help support as many people as possible from the local community and beyond to attend, with 60 tickets available per day. Time slots run every 10 minutes from 6.00-7.30pm. There is also the opportunity to explore the museum exhibits only without a ticket from 15-18 March from 4-5.45pm daily. To book, visit: Click Here. Suitable for ages 12+.

This project has been supported by public funding from Arts Council England, and is produced in partnership with Age UK Lewisham-Southwark and Meet Me at The Albany (a partnership project between the Albany and Entelechy Arts).
