a Fable - a Fantasy - a Folly
The tree-lined avenues, the parks, the streetscapes, the beautiful buildings, artists, theatres, churches, The Tuileries, The Louvre, Notre Dame, … But – oil is to be found in the Paris substrata.
No-one can stand against progress, so plots are being hatched to demolish the city to access the mineral riches!! The only obstacle to these horrendous plans is a small group of unimportant people, led by some Madwomen, and comprised of eccentrics, street vendors, and one rag-and-bone man. Can this ill-assorted band stand in the face of big money and power?
Of course they can - this is NOT the real world, this is a FANTASY!
With a large ensemble cast of talented actors, of all ages. This is a production not to be missed.
Translated by our own Rod thompson and Maria Plumb from the original French. The new script is chock full of brilliant characters.
