Presented by Cartoon de Salvo

Made for village halls and rural communities, this one-off presentation of Cartoon de Salvo’s very new show allows us to test it out in an urban theatre space – how will it work? We invite you, The Powercut Compendium's first city audience on its debut tour, to join us at Sprint 2015 as we see how our village hall show works in an urban theatre environment. We welcome your thoughts in the bar afterwards…

A tech-savvy theatre company, fresh from the city, begin their latest show when the room is plunged into sudden darkness. Is it a blow-out – or something more mysterious? Join the "gloriously theatrical" (Wall Street Journal) Cartoon de Salvo on a journey into wonder – with restless ghosts, lost legends, some stuffed animals, and three characters who only begin to see when they can’t see at all.

One of the UK’s best loved touring companies, Cartoon de Salvo (Meat & Two Veg, The Chaingang Gang, Pub Rock) have made shows everywhere from your local allotment to Soho Theatre and the Kennedy Center Washington.  Now they draw on fifteen years of taking theatre to village halls with this new show, promising their trademark mix of exceptional storytelling, gorgeous live music and swashbuckling adventure.

For adults and brave children who aren’t afraid of the dark. Ages 8+

“Surreal, unpretentious, swashbuckling theatre” – Time Out Critics Choice
