Shoutout – SW Collective ‘Count Me In’

Last night, I had the great opportunity to see the SW Collective in action performing their new show ‘Count Me In.’ Because I went to the workshop earlier in the day, I even got a chance to be counted in and be part of the show.

‘Count Me In’ is a performance piece that tells life stories through numbers. It’s set in a bingo hall and follows three characters, a caller and two players.

The performers of the SW Collective are incredibly talented people. The show has a simple premise with a simple message told by familiar characters. However, because of the excellent performances from the team, ‘Count Me In’ is a sharp, highly engaging, sophisticated piece of work. It is fresh, poignant and grounded.

If you live in the South West and you get a chance to go along and see it, take the opportunity.

‘Count Me In’ is being performed at the Frome Festival in July 2014.
