Village Venture Theatre                      Team Viking

One of the runaway theatre hits of the 2016 Edinburgh Festival. It got a 5 star review from the industry’s most respected publication, The Stage, and is a lovely one-man theatre show in turns hilarious, heart-lifting and wacky, which tells the story of how one man actually gave his best mate the send-off he wanted.

Five years ago, James Rowland’s best friend Tom was diagnosed with heart cancer and given three months to live. His last wish was to be given a full viking burial.

This is low-tech, honest and simple theatre/storytelling with a real connection to an audience. Bearded and naturally sporting a Viking helmet, James holds the audience in the palm of his hand as he relates this very personal, and often side splittingly funny tale. The show is very well put together with live song and music, comedy and the touching moments within the tale are handled sensitively allowing you to celebrate and reflect along with James friendship and passing. One reviewer said ‘At no stage does Rowland come close to sentimentality or self-indulgence. It’s sure-footed, poised and delicate in its treatment of death.’

Highly experienced and popular in Rural and Community Touring Tangram have teamed up with Supporting Wall, a producing company who have won Olivier, Fringe First & OffWestEnd Awards for contemporary theatre in London, New York and on UK tours.       

All tickets £10;    7.30pm start       Tel. 01636 636421 / 636185

"Just two human performers are joined on stage by a dozen colourful handmade puppets and a lovely set with a lovely vintage trunk revealing strange contraptions as if by magic.

What's clever about this show is where the human performers finish and the puppets begin - not only are the performers very skilled puppeteers and story tellers, but both humans and non humans are in clever costumes that look like parts of them have been skilfully constructed from the pages of books.

The story is adapted from Kenneth Grahame’s evergreen tale, following the peaceful pleasures of Ratty’s beloved river bank to the fearful frights and wicked weasels of the Wild Wood.

The characters of Mole and Ratty on their marvellous adventures, along with gruff old Badger and wild Mr.Toad are brilliant."
