ABOUT FRANK

FRANK is about Frank. Frank Thomas. A real-life 18-stone ex-rugby-scholarship-winning bear-of-a-man. His father was a friend of the Krays and once knew a guy who kept a monkey in a box. He lives with a Scottish drug dealer and a computer hacker. His only friend is the cult 90’s American TV show Northern Exposure, a show he sometimes imagines he’s part of…

FRANK is devised by Frank Thomas and the Collective. It’s a piece inspired by the real life of Frank Thomas, the environmental concept of Rewilding and the writings of biologist George Monbiot. We’re interested in blurring the line between Franks’s real life, the way he sees the world in his own head and how the rest of us handle that. Part hymn to our generation and part blueprint for what we might do next, the show features original poems from Frank, an omnipresent relationship-advice-giving radio DJ, a creative relationship with the truth, a really good wild-beast costume, some real science, a police chase and some other stuff we haven’t thought of yet.

FRANK will be The Jones Collective’s next show after the success of their multi-award winning debut show ‘Hiraeth’.

Now we hear from Prof Ian Hargreaves @CreativeCardiff - should more public bodies follow @NTWtweets approach, eschewing permanent iconic buildings and siting their work in the context of the communities they seek to work for?
