Martha

Macrobert Arts Centre
Sat 22 Sep, 2pm
For ages 4+

Who is Martha? 
 
Martha lives by the sea… Martha lives alone… Martha doesn’t need anyone… 
She is stubborn, eccentric and highly independent. 
 
Who are Martha’s friends? 
 
Not her next door neighbour. Not her helpful postman. Nor her secret admirer from across the bay. 
One day Martha has an unexpected visitor and her life will never be the same again.

Recommended for age 12+

A boy on the run. A listening crow. A man who wants to be lost. The story of two people struggling; a boy and a man, told through poetry and stark reality in text, film and soundscape. As our world becomes more disparate and broken, it questions if our children and young people are being systematically and ideologically let down by society.

Tetra-Decathlon at Macrobert Arts Centre

Having never set foot on a running track in her life, Lauren Hendry decided to sign up for the Tetra-Decathlon, a grueling 14-event track and field competition. This illuminating solo show charts Lauren’s journey as she trains for and competes in this most taxing of sporting events, whilst asking pertinent questions about the psychology of sport and what drives us to compete.

The Shadow of Heaven

The Shadow of Heaven is an explosive, hour-long journey through Milton’s epic poem, Paradise Lost, emphasising the work’s visceral, physical and musical qualities.

Describing Satan’s quest from the depths of hell up to the Garden of Eden – and his meeting with Eve – this highly imaginative adaptation seeks to present the theatrical dynamism at the heart of Milton’s seminal work; which he originally imagined as a piece of tragic theatre.

Welcome My Son

A unique interpretation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, told through the monster’s eyes, using Chinese pole and physical theatre.

Abandoned by his father the Monster feels isolated and alone in this unique re-telling of the classic story, that also explores the themes of conformity and prejudice, giving them contemporary relevance.
