Rehearsals begin for theatre show heading to Bromfield and Quatt
Rehearsals have begun for a theatre group's new production with a star-studded cast.
One of the cast members from Pentabus Theatre Company and Everyman Theatre Cheltenham is an actress who has recently starred in the West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
Helena Lymbery will perform multiple roles in the show Wolves Are Coming For You, which will be performed nationwide, including dates in Bromfield and Quatt.
This new play from Olivier-nominated playwright Joel Horwood explores how much wild we are comfortable with.
Joel said: "I grew up dancing at birthday parties, attending wakes and watching plays in village halls. Pentabus has always made challenging and engaging work for these spaces and audiences and I am delighted to be a part of this latest venture. At a time of such political division, it is essential that we find ways to speak to one another deeply. Pentabus has always aimed to do this through choices of subject matter and touring ambitions."
The show is directed by artistic director Sophie Motley, designed by Carla Goodman, lighting designed by Azusa Ono with movement direction from Kitty Winter.
Sophie said: "Joel’s brilliant play utterly captures how the wild outside can frighten, delight and ultimately coalesce a rural community. His observations are beautiful, intricate characters ageing from 11 to 80 are portrayed with great depth, dexterity and a wry smile. I feel privileged to make my Pentabus directing debut with this play."
The show will be at Bromfield Village Hall on September 27 and 28, and at Quatt Village Hall on October 14.
