CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
The drummer is always the crazy one. This show takes that idea and runs like mad. One boy's rapture with drumming is explained almost as a lesson for us. He is an exceptional performer, timing his story to win many laughs and impressing with his music. The character is presumably on some spectrum, being winningly naive. He is so convincing and likeable that we still support him when the story turns dark. I never thought I would enjoy such a solid hour of percussion but he won’t our hearts.
