This intimate new show from Clod Ensemble has a dark, original fairy tale at its heart. The Red Chair is a surreal ballad that tells the story of a man who could not stop eating, the wife doomed to cook his meals and their ‘inveesible’ daughter
Join acclaimed writer/performer Sarah Cameron as she takes you on a journey through a world of extreme compulsion and eye watering complacency, where domestic drudgery happens on an operatic scale and a father’s dereliction of duty reaches epic proportions.
Told in a rich and saucy Scots dialect with physical verve, a musical score that rolls in like the mist over the hills and a wee dram of whisky to oil the way, The Red Chair lies somewhere between a Grimms’ Tale, an absurdist ghost story and a parent’s guide on how not to bring up children.
Deal offered: Arts Live will pay the artists’ fees. We recommended a ticket price of £10/Conc £8. Arts Live will receive the first £300 of ticket income, the promoter (you) will receive the next £150 of ticket income.
