HIGHLIGHTS – ‘BRAVE FOLK” (a Farnham Maltings production)
Saturday 3rd March
Parish Hall at 7:30 pm (doors open at 7:00)
There will be a bar.
On Saturday 3rd March, Amble Parish Hall welcomes audiences to an evening of story and song from the lands of the far, far north. Brave Folk is a mystical Nordic tale fizzing with humour and suspense about love and courage and knowing when to act.
Welcome to the marshlands. A place where you can tell a person by the sound of their squelch. Yorgjin Oxo is a carefree young man and an unlikely hero who has been taught the sounds of storms and how to sing into the rain, until one day the next village disappears and everything changes.
Performed by a company of 5 actors, Brave Folk tells of a place quite unlike our own, and of soggy nights, brave mice, larger than life characters, and the joys of being alive. The show is written by Thomas Crowe and directed by Gavin Stride who says “We want this to feel less like a play and more like an event. Like you have spent the evening in the company of friends”.
Surrey based, Farnham Maltings are favourites on the rural touring networks and have previously partnered with Highlights Rural Touring Scheme to bring Northumberland audiences ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’, ‘The Iranian Feast’ and many other great shows. The company has a well-earned reputation as creators of engaging theatre especially created for non-theatre spaces and village halls. (Meg and I saw ‘The Iranian Feast’ when it was performed in Howick Village Hall a few years ago, and it was brilliant!)
The show is on Saturday 3rd March in the Parish Hall at 7:30 pm (doors open at 7:00). Prices are as usual, Adults £8, concessions £7, children £5, and tickets can be bought from N&F Young and online, or on the door. There will be a licensed bar, and a raffle.
