Events for 16 Jul 2017

Beowulf

Date: 16 July 2017

Location: The Belgrade Theatre

Time: 16:30

The definition of a hero is a person, typically a man, who is admired for their courage, outstanding achievements or noble qualities.

Beowulf 1

The definition of a monster is a large, ugly, inhumanly cruel, imaginary creature.

This is just a story.

All is not well in the office. The ruthless Grendel Incorporations are making redundancies left, right and centre. The employees are living in fear of their new boss, Graham. They are in need of a champion, a saviour.

A hero.

Inspired by the Anglo-Saxon epic poem,Beowulf unapologetically reflects on gender, heroism and asks the age-old question; is decapitation really the most appropriate way to deal with an unreasonable boss? Performed with a cast of 9 women in collaboration with the Bristol Old Vic, the show uses an original score and ensemble theatre to tell the story of history’s greatest hero.

The Murderer

Date: 16 July 2017

Location: Shop Front Theatre Coventry CV1 3HW

Time: 11:30

Sunday 16 July, 11:30am & 2:30pm I have a murderer in my house. It’s all perfectly fine.

The murderer

In a world where citizens rehabilitate criminals, the Carer and the Murderer go for coffee and play badminton. *Clown Funeral*’s adaptation of Luke Kennard’s darkly comic poem tells the story of their unusual relationship, questions how easily we can forgive someone and asks to what extent our obsessions can consume us.

Using an electrifying style that blends surreal humour, physical theatre and original music, Clown Funeral vividly bring the bizarre world of the poem to life. With a rolling cast portraying the characters of the Carer, the Murderer and Everyone Else, this unconventional three-hander poses difficult questions about morality, preconceptions and care in a uniquely offbeat voice.
