Produced by Authentic Blue Showcases
Presented by The Cockpit
Two vivid, audacious, yet completely different musical showcases make their theatrical entrance here. “Ship in a Bottle” is a gritty, contemporary urban saga shot through with wit, irony and dark colours. It is a contemporary fable in a brutal metropolis.
A beautiful young firebrand wants to put the world right. She is a true fighter but she has to learn lessons along the way. Far, far from there, set among the idyllic coral reefs of the south Pacific is “Tahiti”, an extravaganza of magical realism. Myth and ritual inhabit its sun-kissed locations. Animals talk, humans listen, a world is reborn in the face of catastrophe. Both shows present a muscular, thrilling and unblinking view of today, our now world. They are high on emotion, richly thought-provoking and interwoven with transcendent moments.
From different sides of our beautiful planet a cry goes out for a better world. Something stirs in British musicals. Be there at the birth.
Plus matinees at 2:30pm on 10th, 11th and 12th October
