The Crossroads Opposable Thumb
Morning workshop and performance for Home-Educated children.
Date & Time: Thursday 9th November 11am-1pm
Once upon a crossroads a mysterious tree stands, and a traveller is lost. Where have they come from? Which way to go? What exactly are they running from? This tree seems friendly enough, maybe they can stay here... forever? Kronos the Wizard needs your help to face their biggest fears and finish their story. Aid Kronos with their decision making, taking an active role in the shape of things to come. Jump up and become part of the action yourself!
Using masks, puppets and ridiculous physicality Adam will guide you on a magical and very silly quest to finish Kronos' story. No one knows how it will all go but it's sure to be a lot of fun getting there.
This performance and clay workshop are especially for home-educated children
We were promised Honey YesYesNoNo
Date & Time: Thursday 9th November 7.30pm - 8.35pm
We were promised honey! tells the story of the audience, in the minutes, days, years and millennia after the end of the show. Through the frame of Richard Russell’s story - a Seattle baggage handler who stole a plane and executed a series of manoeuvres before crashing to his death - the show invites the audience to reflect on their choices, in the face of inevitability. The threats posed by nuclear war, climate change and rampant disease hang in the air as Sam asks the audience whether they still want to carry on the story, even though we know we’re hurtling toward the inevitable, tragic end.
Unity One ★★★★★ 'This is something really special
★★★★★ It’s an apocalyptic, strange hour of theatre that makes you feel grateful to be alive, grateful to be part of a communal gathering of people. Alice Savile, The Financial Times
