Theatre: A Pageant.....

Another theatre trip to The Mercury in Colchester. This was another in the series like The One Man Protest that we've previously seen and it's the same two actors playing all the parts, so clever and so funny.

A laugh-out-loud tale of provincial intrigue.


“The temptation to come back for more is irresistible”
The Guardian
A battle between Sylvie and Celia over who’s going to play Boudicca at the forthcoming village fete forces Toby to make a life-changing choice between love and art in this tender, savage and very, very funny play.
A Pageant is part of Intimate Exchanges, a series of plays by Alan Ayckbourn, in which just two actors play every single character exploring how even the tiniest, careless choices we make in our lives can have enormous consequences.
It’s the ultimate theatrical game of love and chance, and an absolute comic delight. We’ve chosen the four funniest and most poignant plays in the series to be part of our 2013 season, so whether you’re only able to join us for a single episode, or like thousands of people who’ve seen Intimate Exchanges over the years you find that you have to know what ‘Fate’ has in store next for Ayckbourn’s wonderful cast of characters, and decide to join us for two, three or all four instalments, you can be sure of an experience packed full of razor wit and lightning costume changes!

Really enjoyed this :-)
