Playbox Theatre opens its Autumn season with a thrilling new play, Dancing Bear and the Hunter in the Stars. A new commission by writer and film maker, Mairin O Hagan, this exciting piece follows the adventures of Stella Somersby as she travels back two thousand years to Ancient Greece where she encounters the Goddess Artemis, the God Apollo, Orion, Sirius and the deadly Scorpio.
Playbox’s Young Production Company will finally get to perform this multi-disciplinary adventure after a delay of 18 months. A wonderful show for all the family.
“This bold new work brilliantly thrust the audience back face-to-face with the horrific human reality of mass migration… it showcased an inspired young ensemble… this was truly something else.”
Steve Sutherland, Stratford-upon-Avon Herald (Paradise Kill 2016)
