Looking for a unique Christmas present for that special child or family? Well, your local theatre company, Barnstorm, has the perfect solution with tickets going on sale on Wednesday, December 20th, for their newest world-premiere: Barney Carey Gets His Wings. The play will be performed at the Watergate Theatre from February 21st to 24th, with the family show is on Saturday, February 24th and the school performances are from Wednesday to Friday (school shows’ tickets will go on sale on January 10th).
This play tells the story of Barney and his dad who, while rooting through an old trunk, find more than they bargained for and a few things that set them wondering: who makes the rules? What happens if you break the rules? And who is the lady with the beard?
Artistic Director, Philip Hardy, says: “Another exciting project for us! Over the past few years we have engaged new artists to create innovative theatre for young audiences and this is no exception. Both writer Brendan Murray and director Martin Drury have a wealth of experience and knowledge of Theatre for Young Audiences – this will be one to remember!”
Get down to the Watergate Theatre, or go online to get your tickets and next February you can join Barney, his dad, and the lady with the beard, as they spread their wings in this comic tale of forgotten memories and future possibilities.
Barnstorm Theatre Company is also celebrating the shortlisting of their long-time collaborator, Mike Kenny, by the Writers’ Guild Great Britain’s for the Best Play for Young Audiences, for his hugely successful 2016 Barnstorm play, The Messenger. Fingers crossed for a win on January 15th!
