Scene + Heard Kicks off in just 3 weeks! Some really exciting stuff is being put on this year; it's your best chance to get in on the ground floor and see some fantastic new work! With that in mind, we're going to spotlight some of the cool stuff you can catch in week 1 of the festival. (It also helps that the Yank's involved with these shows. *cough*)
In Search of the Spring is the latest show by Phoenix Theatre Company. Written and directed by Andy Gallagher, it uses the tropes of fantasy and fairy tales to explore how friggin' terrifying being a young adult is.
Gilbert is a selfish, greedy boy with an itch.
Bianca is a drunk and a musical genius (in that order).
Dido is the latest victim of the “Happily Ever After” trap.
All three set off through the woods in search of what just might be the answer to all of their problems...
Classic story-telling, bawdy humor and high fantasy combine to examine some home truths about growth and healing. In Search of The Spring is an allegorical tale informed by the belief that no one is too old for an aul' bedtime story.
