I Ain’t Afraid of No Ghost
Feb 21 @ 7:30 pm

Tickets now available at the Foxlowe and online as usual.

Do you believe in ghosts?   Imagine an ordinary home with extraordinary goings-on.

Over 30 years ago, director and performer Gareth Nicholl’s family home was haunted by a rather playful poltergeist.  Cupboard doors would open, Madonna records would spring into life in the wee small hours:  but the final straw came when the family pack of Kit Kats disappeared.

Using family heirlooms, icomic 80s toys, interviews, photographs and real-life home videos ion stage, Gareth sets out to get to the bottom of this paranormal mystery:  what was really going on?

A funny and nostalgic trip back to the 80s in a theatre show for adults and older children about the family home and its playful poltergeist.  It delves into the childhood of Gareth, the director and one of the performers, and draws you into a fascinating paranormal mystery set in a very recognisable suburban world.

”A quirky, creative performance that encourages your own overactive imagination, reconnects you with some sounds, sights and flavours of the past, and provides lots of laughs along with a few spooky surprises!”

Formed in 2005 by co-Directors Gareth Nicholls and Philip Holyman, West-Midlands based Little Earthquake Theatre Company http://little-earthquake.com/projects  “exists to create events that will surprise, entertain, inspire and intrigue.

One minute you know who you are, where you are and what you are doing. The next minute your mind’s a blank slate… A Finnish Melancomedy.

A new stage adaptation of the Cannes-Award-winning film by legendary film-maker Aki Kaurismaki, one of Finland’s greatest modern storytellers:  produced by New Perspectives Theatre Company.  “Four decades experience of adapting written works for the stage. What some might consider theatrical difficulties New Perspectives revels in as artistic challenges” Reviews Hub

We meet our anti-hero near a shoreline, abandoned with no memory of his name or past life. Taken in by an eccentric community, with a disused shipping container for a home, he begins an accidental romance whilst adapting to his new way of life. But the past doesn’t leave him alone for long…

Featuring a cracking live soundtrack, this part melancholic love story, part deliciously deadpan comedy takes you on one man’s extraordinary journey from anonymity to unexpected salvation.

A professional theatre show brought to us by Live&Local, supported by Arts Council England and Staffordshire Moorlands District Council.

Tickets:   £11.00 in advance  (£13.00 on the night);  £6.00 for students.  Tickets available 19 February.

Disability parking at rear of building.

Licensed bar, soft and hot drinks available from 7pm.
