Artsreach event

Owdyado with 'A View from The Edge


Tickets available from Deb Childs Tel: 01935 891744 and the Community shop
Adults £9.00, U18 £6.00, Family £25.
Bar, Tea, Coffee/ Light Refreshments available

Private eye and troubled sleeper Charlie Daniels is hired by the seductive Elise Hillerman to investigate the disappearance of her husband – a prominent gallery owner. Meanwhile, writers Charlotte and Dan struggle to write the script of their new noir-inspired theatre show about an art forgery ring. As scenes spin, fragment and entangle with each other, one question arises: whose reality is real? A View from the Edge is a slick and surprising show where the search for the truth provokes a mind-bending journey through the world of dreams, imagination and real life. With its sharp wit, quick pace and a heavy dose of noir style; from the classic to the neo, A View from the Edge also takes influence from cult filmmakers Charlie Kaufman and David Lynch. A View from the Edge is a highly original show that will not only delight and intrigue but will keep you guessing until the end. Pay attention. It’s about to get weird
