Village Idiot

Tour synopsis, cast & creatives

Village Idiot
"If I were an animal there would be legislation to protect my home, but because I'm just a bloody human they can do whatever the f**k they like." Townies have decided they want a lie in, so they're building a new high-speed railway. Issue is, it's going right through Barbara Honeybone's house, and she 'ent having none of it. Barbara's grandson Peter works for the townies and it's his job to convince the village that having a two-tonne bullet hurtling through the cabbage patches will actually be for the best. Then there's Harry, Barbara's younger grandson, he ‘ent that bothered about trains, he's only got eyes for Debbie Mahoney. But the only thing Barbara hates more than townies is the Mahoneys. Welcome to Syresham, South Northamptonshire. It's not quite the Cotswolds, not quite one of those posh villages Americans have in movies but it does have Syresham's Got Talent, the headline event of the village fair. There'll be songs, dancing, magic, drag, a bit of wrestling, and Kevin's doing a meat raffle (vegetarian option two tins of Strongbow). Village Idiot is an audacious comedy, where family feuds kick off around a country fair that you townies are all invited to. Every performance of Village Idiot will be in a Relaxed Environment
Age Advisory: 14+ this show contains very strong language and discusses themes some may find upsetting relating to race, sexuality and disability
