Following their hit show Education, Education, Education, The Wardrobe Ensemble present the world premiere of South Western at Tobacco Factory Theatres this July. It’s a celebration of everything you love about the South West; a spaghetti western with Cornish pasties.
Mae Trembles is on a mission. With a shotgun in one hand, a packet of pickled onion Monster Munch in the other, and an expired 16-25 railcard in her back pocket, she picks her way through her past in search of answers. En route she meets Ann Gough, a maverick drifter, and together they wend their way through wind and rain to reach the final frontier of the South West: the Wayfarer’s Arms.
Notorious villains, uneasy alliances, doomed love affairs and thigh-slapping folk music combine in this odyssey of revenge. It’s an epic tale of blood, guts and cider!
Produced in association with Tobacco Factory Theatres, South Western will receive its world premiere here in Bristol this July. Not only will this be another corker of a production from Wardrobe Ensemble but the wonderful talents of folk musicians including Sam Brookes, Jamie Cruickshank and Circe’s Diner, will be heard before the show and a stunning folk sound track by composer Tom Crosley-Thorne is woven into the production.
The Wardrobe Ensemble’s previous shows RIOT, 33 and 1972: The Future of Sex, have delighted Tobacco Factory Theatres’s audiences before; this won’t disappoint!
South Western runs at Tobacco Factory Theatres from Tue 17 – Fri 27 July. For more information and tickets visit the main show page.
