#4 Rex The King

A blind man walks into a pub and tells anyone who’ll listen that he was once the king of darts.   He orders a pint and settles down to recount the story of his glorious rise to the top - and how dark secrets brought him down.

 

The second in our sporting trilogy, Rex The King is the story of a Somerset darts champion who ruled the world, but lost it all. It’s a theatrical tale that’s witty, uplifting and ludicrously tragic.  Rex toured into pubs across Somerset in 2017. 

Rex The King is a reimagining of the Greek tragedy Oedipus, featuring live music, flying arrows and a portable dartboard.

#5 Eelie Day

Sam and Evie are getting married!  They only met yesterday but fell instantly head over heels in love.  As they find out what new-found love means, a ghost from the past comes out from the shadows.

Set and performed on a 1920’s miller’s cart pulled by two Suffolk Punch horses, the show passed through Langport, across the Somerset Levels to Muchelney and back again.
