The title of “Fruitcake” evokes a lost world of English teatime, as well as the mixed up and unpredictable nature of this piece.
Produced by two teenage girls as a response to growing up in a quiet but strange Moorland town in the South West of England, “Fruitcake” contains a blend of interviews with older residents of the town, dramatised sections set in an imagined 1950’s community, improvised music and a bit of giggling and mucking about. In their words:
“We’ve been cutting and pasting and things. Basically our story is about two friends growing up in the 1950s in Buckfastleigh. It’s a very hearwarming tale of joy and friendship. And it’s sad and it’s lovely and you’ll love the people in it. You will laugh and you will cry and you will make new friends in this amazing world of Buckfastleigh. Come and visit us. We’re not a bit crazy.”
