A double-bill of plays, one serious, one comic by Clifford Bax have been fused with music, visual art, mime, song and dance to deliver a delightful multi-arts performance piece.

Prelude and Fugue is a delightful fusion of poetic language, music and visual art.

The play set in the 1930s reflects the musical interlude ‘Prelude and Fugue’ by Johann Sebastian Bach and tells the story of the twice married Rosemary, who a week before her third wedding, is having her likeness drawn in charcoal by the young and innocent Joan. As Joan sketches, the two women discover a dark secret shared by both of them.

Square Pegs is an amusing and thought provoking fantasy about love. A farcical romp about lust and life. Hilda, a passionate young girl from the 20th Century longs for an equally passionate lover, but Harry has eyes only for his car! Gioconda a practical girl of 16th Century Venice longs for a lover without all the raw and radical passion of her time. They meet at ‘Merlin’s Gate’ where disappointed lovers can turn ‘The Book of Time’ and move within some other age. Peppered with dance, mime, songs and humour, along with a scorching sound track.

After show talk with cast.

Plays made for women, that every man should see!

Suitable for 14+.
