Batty, Nutty and Away with the Fairies…These ladies are out and about and looking for love… well someone to be their husband at least. Years on the shelf have taken their toll. They may be desperate but try hard to maintain a sense of poise and decorum expected in a convivial society. Elegantly ugly and utterly bonkers, they will certainly bring comedy and style to any event. With their big frocks and even bigger wigs, they can’t be missed.
This show was originally created in partnership with Action Factory Community Arts for Blackburn Festival in 2013. Gallery contains photographs from this event by Carl Gibson.
How the show works:
Our strolling shows use colourful characters, playful antics and humorous banter to bring the imaginary world of the character to the real world of the audience. Using visual designs and interactive components we aim to create a setting in which people can experience the fun of play and feel the freedom to be silly.
Our strolling performances although structured in method have no structured content. All of our characters accept the world they find themselves in and try and fit in, be helpful and above all be loved by those they meet on their way.
