Stacks Image 501

6 Impossible Things is a performance that unites film makers, sculptors, taxidermists and magicians in a comedy-theatrical-spectacular. Two experienced performers keep audiences guessing with an exceptional show which also stars the creations of this exceptional group of artists. Full of bizarre twists and turns they present a magic carpet ride to a topsy turvy world where nothing is as it seems. And, most marvellous of all, demonstrate that it’s the same old world that we wake up to day after day.

Following her recent highly appreciated tour of Double Booked, actor-playwright Ginny Davis returns with another instalment in the Ruth Rich saga. Never far from the flood of chaos created by family and friends, mother of teenagers Ruth Rich relates an hilarious and satirical tale of the unexpected. Forced by circumstances to accompany her son, his unruly friend and his friend’s mother to Marrakesh, Ruth leaves her teenage daughter at home alone with the goldfish whilst dotty Gran worries nearby.
Ginny has earned herself two sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and a reputation for delivering witty reflections on family life.

Bowjangles came to the Village Hall - Sunday September 23rd 2012

God, I love talented people. And I don't just mean oh-she's-quite-a-good-singer or oh-he's-quite-funny talented.
I mean properly accomplished. And this is exactly how I'd describe Bowjangles, the hyperactive string quartet behind 'Bowlympics'. Not only are they superb musicians but they combine this talent with tuneful singing voices and a surprising gift for physical comedy.
The four have obviously worked hard to make their potentially-inaccessible art light and fun and they've pulled it off in spades. Mixing orchestral pieces as diverse as The Blue Danube and The Dambusters, the show follows the pattern of a good old-fashioned British sports broadcast, complete with 'messages' from the sponsors.
Each event forms the backbone for a musical medley loosely based around it. Particular favourites for me were the superbly-choreographed tennis and fencing matches, backed by fast, spirited classics, the foursome clashing bows and plucking strings with wild abandon.

The Honey Man - Performed at the Hall on April 22nd 2012 by New Perspectives Theatre Group

The Honey Man tells the absorbing tale of an unlikely friendship that develops one summer between Misty, a 15 year-old girl, and The Honey Man, an 'ancient' afro-caribbean man who has taken up residence in a derelict cottage at the edge of the picture-postcard English village where she lives.

It's a tale of growing up and growing old, of individual responsibility and shared history, of dying bees, healing herbs and (possibly) just a little magic.

Much Ado About Wenlock - Performed at the Hall on March 25th 2012 by Vamos Theatre Group

"Much Ado About Wenlock is one of the most charming, delightful and perfectly inventive pieces of theatre seen in years. Vamos break new ground where other mask mime theatre companies fear to tread. Birth and death, gymnastics, Morris dancing and male nudity - all done with mask and mine - in the best possible taste. Charlie Chaplin would be full of admiration. The company express the heartfelt values of the originator of the Modern Olympics, William Penny Brookes, with a finely balanced mixture of sincerity and hilarity. Janie Amour's music and found-sound backing track is so witty I could have watched with my eyes closed." BBC Radio Shropshire
