“A small show with a GIANT message, Fair Play is fun and thought-provoking. Plus it’s suitable for all the family!”
Festive Road is keeping it local with their new theatre piece Fair Play.
This is the story of two sisters who begin their journey on the family farm but everything changes when the Trickster comes on the scene (cue: boo, hiss!)
The characters tell the story of trade, taking the audience from the fields and power houses of past and present, to the most recent incarnations of market places; the disconnected shopping experience presented by faceless corporations. And as the sleeping giant is gradually revealed within the ever transforming landscape, hand held puppets, projections and larger than life characters are played and animated with physicality and humour. The show even uses a cycle powered generator!
A positive future is in sight, in which we are all responsible for the giant that commerce has created; the solutions remain in our hands.
The show has been created and devised by Festive Road, directed by Jessica Rost and performed by Natali Bass, Manuela Benini and Allan Davies.
Special thanks goes to Arts Council England, MK Council, MK Community Foundation, The Chrysalis Theatre, Adam Walker at Magnificent Revolution and Phil Canvin.
Fair Play has been presented in several schools in Milton Keynes, in association with the Walking with Giants project and is now ready to be presented at festivals and public events. The show would work particularly well in conjunction with food festivals or local markets. To book or find out more email:email@example.com
