The Rude Mechanical Theatre Company

July 11, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

We will be having the wonderful outdoor touring theatre company, The Rude Mechanical Theatre, to perform at Tilham farm, Baltonsborough again, on…

Thursday 11th July at 7.30 – with picnics from 6.00

 The show is called ‘Ikarus Inc’

 There will be a top-quality professional cast of actor/musicians. Bring your own low backed chairs, rugs and warm clothing. It will be a full-on physical theatre experience in the company’s white-faced commedia dell’arte style.

 It is very enjoyable, beautifully performed, and a reminder that this kind of unsung work touring mostly to village greens and playing fields is a crucial part of our theatre ecology.” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

 The show ends at about 10.00pm.

 What’s the show about?

Set in the little town of Dreamville, Indiana, in the ‘50’s, a travelling salesman, Daedalus H. Gildersleeves, and his son Ikarus, sell dreams from a suitcase. Secret hopes are laid bare as they begin to fly the townsfolk up into the clear blue skies to their dreams. Meanwhile the ladies of the local Buffalos Club – the Buffalesses – enter a competition to make the biggest pumpkin pie ever to raise money for ‘the sufferin’ poor’. For Ol’ Mercy Coffin it is just the devil tempting them. But will they fly and achieve their dreams or come crashing down to the cold hard earth? Will the pumpkin pie get baked? Will they win the competition?

‘Hilarious, romantic, tender, searching – and laced with rock’n’roll!’
