Endless featuring N:Dless
Live music, comedy, pop videos and documentary interviews collide to bring you a tale of (very little) sex, (a smattering of) drugs and the unexpected phobias from a life of rock and roll.
It’s not Spinal Tap, Top of the Pops or the Bros Documentary but if you liked those you might like this and even if you didn’t like those you still might like this.
Join Trifle Gathering Productions for this funny, moving, coming of middle age music documentary for the stage … their bravest theatre show to date.
Age recommendation 10+
May contain strong language and themes of a rock and roll nature.

"Spinal tap meets Bros doc and so much more"- Lee Trewhela, Cornwall Live
"‘With a stunning sleight of hand, the show leaves you convinced that the band did exist and that you always were their biggest fan."- Frea Lockley, The Canary
‘an epic alternate history that feels bizarrely pretty blooming familiar.. Immersive, nostalgic… hilarious!’- Elizabeth Dale, Cornish Bird Blog

“Trifle Gathering’s 'Endless Featuring N:Dless' is a unique, surprising and glorious mash up of all things ridiculous, musical and emotional. Using an impressive mix of film, sound and top notch clowning, the characters gently weave around the universal and the mundane. Petty rivalries rub against the meaning of life in a blissful display of frilly blouses, silly fringes and even a gothic corset. Delicious, fresh and moving. Great stuff.”Emma Rice, Wise Children
‘It’s an ingenious mix of live music, comedy, drama, pop videos and documentary interviews with Chumbawamba and Basement Jaxx.’Lee Trewhela, Cornwall Live
‘The richly textured light and shade of Goodey’s script doesn’t hold back. The best comedy is always bittersweet, and she’s a writer who has perfected this interplay. The shift from the highs to lows of the characters and the band’s history make the comedy moments funnier, and also creates truly thought-provoking theatre...It charts a generation that knew how to party – not in pricey clubs but in fields and warehouses across the UK.’Frea Lockley, The Canary
‘tonight’s world premiere in Grampound was bangin. The incredible back story of a dysfunctional band who almost nearly made it is compelling and powerful.’Sheila Vanloo, St Austell Bay Radio
