Sleeping Trees: SciFi? (Sleeping Trees)
By Oliver Jaques | Published on Friday 26 August 2016
Evil threatens the the accident planet of Plutopia, and only one person can save its people, a pig shit farmer from middle of nowhere. Sleeping Trees return with another laugh a minute filmic show. Using hilariously simple physical theatre to play more than twenty five characters the three man group follow the story of Charlie Sprog as he strives to save the Galaxy. Joining the actors on stage are two incredible musicians who – in sound – create barren wastelands, space ports and galactic council chambers for the performers to play in. All this supports the superb comic writing, which recalls the style of ‘Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy’ or Simon Pegg’s Cornett Trilogy. A company set to rocket to stardom.
Pleasance Courtyard, until 29 Aug.
