Henry Moon and the Greasy Spoon, 18th April
Everyone knows Flo’s café. It hasn’t changed in years. It’s no tea at the Ritz, in fact it’s a little bit shabby, but the kettle’s always boiling, and Flo is ready with a welcoming smile. Only problem is, where are the customers?! All visiting those fancy new coffee bistros, no doubt. All seems doomed for Flo until one cold windy day a strange old chap called Henry Moon blows through the doors of the café. Wearing a coat of many pockets, some rose tinted glasses and bursting with imaginative stories, this strange little man could be the answer to Flo’s problems. Join storytelling specialists, Rhubarb Theatre, for a huge spoonful of fun, a mug-full of fantasy and a platter of creativity. Henry Moon and the Greasy Spoon is perfect for families that enjoy theatrical play, puppetry, mask, dance, song and lots of laughter.
Don Juan in Soho, 22nd to 23rd May
Set in modern-day, Soho, London, Patric Marber’s rewrite of Molière’s play of the fictitious libertine, Don Juan, unfolds a satirical and wild depiction of human frailty. You will at times find this modern take on the world’s most infamous philanderer both disturbing and yet charming. Don Juan in Soho will carry you to unexpected emotions as we go on this anarchic journey to the far dark reaches of humanity and immorality.
