Rich pickings at Exmouth's Blackmore Theatre
PUBLISHED: 17:00 11 November 2010
TAKE one pint and add one pig - this is the recipe for a cracking theatrical double-bill - served up by the ever fresh, ever clever Creative Cow team from their home farm deep in Devon.
Creative Cow brought you Travels With My Aunt in 2009, The Knack and The Lover in 2008.
The first course on offer this autumn, is called Two, by Jim Cartwright, a wonderfully witty play written about life behind the scenes in a Northern pub.
Whilst avoiding a troubled past, the bickering landlord and landlady are locked in that endless struggle of the sexes, as we meet the colourful characters who drop in for a tipple. The brilliant language of this award-winning play by Jim Cartwright showcases the outstanding acting ability of the two actors who take on the entire cast.
The second course is the dramatic play Lam by Cornwall’s nationally acclaimed playwright Christopher William Hill.
Set in a Cornish Village in 1941, during the austerity years of the Second World War, Lam tells the heartbreaking story of three butcher brothers, Hamilton, Plum and their younger sibling, Solomon (Lam) Mutton.
Deeply religious, wedded to chapel and very hungry, Hamilton and Plum struggle to justify breaking the law to make a black market windfall.
Add to this Lam’s pet pig and know that a deeply moving story of murder and mayhem is on the cards.
This rich theatrical feast will run for two hours and is on offer at the Blackmore Theatre, Exmouth, on Friday, November 19, at 7.30pm.
Tickets are £10 and are available by calling (01395) 222299.
