  • English touring Theatre: The Herbal Bed,

    Sat, 19 Mar 2016, 1:30 pm
    Exeter Northcott Theatre

    English touring Theatre: The Herbal Bed,

    Audio Described Performance, Exeter Northcott Theatre, 

    Touch Tour Time: 1.30pm
    Sat 19 Mar 2.30pm

    William Shakespeare’s daughter and talented apothecary is publically accused of having an affair with her neighbour, but who will swear to the truth when the case comes before the courts and God? This emotional thriller is based upon real events of 1613.

    ‘This is a lovely, compassionate play full of old-fashioned virtues and it gets a production to match its filigree delicacy in James Dacre’s revival which is so beautifully designed by Jonathan Fensom that you can almost smell the herbs in the garden.’

    Guardian

    ‘James Dacre’s English Touring Theatre production, especially resonant in the year of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, has a seductive glow as it gently probes the nature of love and truth. Its pleasures are subtle, and quite beautiful.’ Times
    ‘James Dacre's revival – in this strongly cast co-production – comes across as a luminous labour of love.’ Independent 
    ‘A stirring evening that reminds that reality depends on perspective and sometimes fictions offer far greater truths than the facts.’ Guardian

    Ticket Price: £14.50, Touch Tour Time: 1.30pm

  • The Odyssey: Missing, Presumed Dead

    Mon, 28 Nov 2016, 1:00 pm
    Northcot Theatre, Exeter

    Audio described performance – Northcot Theatre, Exeter on Saturday 28 November at 2.30pm, touch tour of the set at 1pm 
    A high ranking government minister with a colourful past is sent on a delicate diplomatic mission to Istanbul. But when his trip ends up in a horrific bar room brawl, social media explodes and the enigmatic darling of a political party becomes Europe’s most wanted man overnight. Chased by the authorities, damned by religious leaders, pursued by those looking for vengeance and head-hunted by fanatics, his Odyssey begins.
    Plunged into the ancient past Odysseus must now contend with all the unworldly beings and unnatural phenomena that stand in his way. The Cyclops, the Sirens, witches, whirlpools and flesh-eating armies must all be overcome in the struggle for survival and the long voyage back to the present day. At home, with her husband missing presumed dead, his wife Penelope and their young son are besieged by the press, ravenous for the full story.
    ‘A timely modern political drama…Fascinating’ – The Guardian
    ‘Genius…funny and full of surprises’ – The Times
    ‘…tremendous theatre, leaving a bold image imprinted on the mind’ – The Stage
