THE THREE GOLDEN HAIRS
adapted from the Brother’s Grimm
The youngest CWYT group perform a contemporary take of this classic fairy tale in their own inimitable fashion.

SHOWTIME, adapted from Tim Etchell’s script
Narrated by a clown with a fake dynamite bomb strapped to her chest, the piece begins with a naïve text describing just what a good piece of theatre should be. From this amateurish advice about simple scenery, good casting and dress rehearsals, Showtime soon decays into a chaos of game shows, a dog that talks about suicide and a series of insistent questions asked of a dying thug as he lies bleeding outside a Wendy house. Performed by a cast aged between 12 and 14 years.

Dates:
24 - 25 May, 8PM
