How My Light Is Spent 

Fishbowl Theatre

Publicity for Fishbowl Theatre’s production of Alan Harris’ award-winning play How My Light Is Spent at the Edinburgh Fringe 2018. Package included print and digital poster designs focussed around the theme of original sin and call centres as well as social media assets including poster teasers, countdowns to the show and character posters.

Every Wednesday evening, Jimmy calls Kitty. For precisely nine minutes. At £1.20 a minute.

Jimmy is 34, lives with his mum and works at Newport’s only drive-through doughnut restaurant. Kitty is an adult chat line operator, living in the granny flat of a topiary enthusiast. Things were looking up for Jimmy when he met Kitty for the first time, but then he loses his job and starts to feel a strange tingling in his fingers. Kitty’s not a psychologist yet, but she has some theories about why Jimmy has started to disappear.
