Description

What happens when we bring era-defining characters back to life? A thought-provoking avant-garde history-play, exploring the self through the epic, Paradise Lost. Watch our characters emerge from history into a timeless void. A director and artist break onto the stage emerging into Dickens’ London pub, Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese. With its many nooks and crannies, you can’t help but wonder what stories it holds. The Characters: Homer (the ancient poet), Christopher Marlowe (the Elizabethan playwright), Katherine Parr (Tudor Queen), Constance Fletcher (a character of Gertrude Stein), Picasso, and Director (Pinter-esque).

A challenging and thought provoking play performed by a group of enthusiastic and engaging young actors who skilfully bring some complex dialogue to life. Go see!

A truly unique show, stunning discussion of the purpose and power of language. Can history, perspective and time change the meaning of ones work and importance of their actions. In moderning a text is the initial artist lost? Why do we have a need to see the world change once we die despite the fact that the sun will rise no matter if you do or not. A uniquely intriguing play brought beautifully to life by actors who embody their role, showing their love for the play and their characters, capturing the audience for ever second.

We saw this play the first week and it was extremely enjoyable. It is an intellectual play that brings in the themes Paradise Lost through a meeting of historical characters who share their stories from their viewpoints. A truly clever play and writing, and the performances of the actors very powerful. This is a young team that will go far. See them now!
