The Rude Mechanical Theatre Co return to Haslemere Education Museum garden on Saturday 8th June to perform ‘Ikarus Inc’, a play about hopes and dreams. Set in the little town of Dreamville, Indiana, in the ‘50’s, a travelling salesman, Daedalus H. Gildersleeves, and his son Ikarus, sell dreams from a suitcase. Secret hopes are laid bare as they begin to fly the townsfolk up into the clear blue skies to their dreams. Hilarious, romantic, tender, searching – and laced with rock’n’roll! Meanwhile the ladies of the local Buffalos Club – the Buffalesses – enter a competition to make the biggest pumpkin pie ever to raise money for ‘the sufferin’ poor’. For Ol’ Mercy Coffin it is just the devil tempting them. But will they fly and achieve their dreams or come crashing down to the cold hard earth? Will the pumpkin pie get baked? Will they win the competition?
Bring your own low backed chair, a picnic and warm clothing. Doors open for picnics at 6:00pm. Show starts at 7:30pm. Tickets from Haslemere Hall Box Office.
