Fractured Theatre- 'A Well Away'

Ever wonder what's at the bottom of that place where you toss your coins? Where wishes are made, therein lies the Wellers. A world growing beneath your feet; with their own struggles of belief, love and curiosity. But what happens when that belief is shaken? When that love is challenged? When that curiosity leads them to bite off more than their incisors can chew? Well...... find out in 'A Well A Way'

'Would definitely watch this creative group and recommend to others'

'Entertaining and Thoughtful'

5 In a Hat -'The Only Way Is Olympus'

The Greek Gods are coming with passionate fury and crazy squabbles! These legendary figures of wrath, knowledge and just plain boozing are at it again, fighting back and forth. Zeus has had enough. He is punishing them all by having them walk a mile in the other's sandals and now each god will have to learn the hard and hilarious way how it is to be the other. This show will delight all Greek enthusiasts and amuse to no end, audiences who love surreal and insane styles of classic comedy. With a mixture of the old and new, The Only Way Is Olympus brings the Greek gods in a brand new light to people as they personally prove they are right over their siblings and try and survive a day as each other. These colourful crazy gods will bring every ounce of their divine eccentricities forward to delight and entertain all those who love to laugh.

Saturday 8th July 2017, 2.30pm & 7.30pm

 

Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young Prince lived in a shining castle.

Although he had everything his heart desired, the Prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind.

But then, one winter's night, an old beggar woman came to the castle,

And offered him a single rose In return for shelter from the bitter cold.

Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the Prince sneered at the gift,

And turned the old woman away.

But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for Beauty is found within.

And when he dismissed her again, the old woman's ugliness melted away,

To reveal a beautiful Enchantress.

The Prince tried to apologise… but it was too late,

For she had seen that there was no love in his heart.

And as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous beast…

And placed a powerful spell on the castle, and all who lived there.

As the years passed… he fell into despair… and lost all hope…

For who could ever learn to love... a Beast?
