Creativity doesn’t come much keener than this! From expert puppetry, mind-twisting subconscious thought-provoking shadow imagery, to macabre hand-crafted masks, add Mephisto and soul-searching scary ghouls.

Fools Theatre Company, conceived by super-talented performing arts director and author, David Erskine who shares his magic and illusion with equally talented Georgia Toner and Cesar Genaro, is set to go places. Between them, they enact nine sketches provoking whimsy, sadness, joy and fear, interspersed with clever, slick tricks of deception, set to theatrical lighting and musical score.

The beautiful-sad lament from Henry Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas provides a dramatic aural backdrop to the final piece. The cry of a mother, the innocence of a child, the futility of war.

The Bureau of Dodgy Dreams plumbs the inner depths of your conscience and imagination, and includes one of Edgar Allan Poe’s dark tales, delivered exquisitely by actresss Georgia Toner . This is a show not to be missed, appealing to audiences young and old alike, and one that will mysteriously dwell in your thoughts for a very long time.

    A must see!

    We saw this show and found it captivating. I have always loved puppets and these were so interesting and unique. The narrative and content was unusual with each of the individual pieces taking the audience on a thought provoking and different journey to the previous piece.
