Persephone

12 - 14 August, 2022
Have you heard the story of the little old town? Inspired by the classic Greek myth, Persephone is a heartwarming new musical featuring an original folk-rock score. The rural town of Olympus has fallen into a steady rhythm under the fixed control of Zeus. Immortality grows rife, power is corrupt and nothing is a secret for long. Yet for the young Persephone, who lives hidden away in the fields, the little old town is nothing but a story. With the arrival of a mysterious stranger, Persephone is set on a journey that’ll entwine her with the little old town forever. For this is a world of folklore, but also a world of immortality, and when you live forever there is one thing everyone craves but no one can keep for long: youth. Described by critics as a “a superb production” (North West End UK ★★★★) and “the best of classical versus modern storytelling” (Breaking the Fourth Wall ★★★★), this new musical by Emma Hawkins and Carrie Penn premiered to great commercial and critical success at the Oxford Playhouse in November 2021, and it is now visiting the Little Theatre for 2 shows only on its tour this summer. Content Warning depictions of sexual assault, emotional abuse and miscarriage, mentions of mental illness. Running time - 2 hours 30 minutes (inc interval).

12 - 14 August, 2022

Shrek 2

12 - 14 August, 2022
Patchy, episodic sequel to DreamWorks' inspired, satirical riff on Disney fairy tales, this fails to replicate the magic of the original. Back from honeymoon, swamp-dwelling Shrek and his bride, Princess Fiona are invited to visit his in-laws, King Harold and Queen Lillian, rulers of the kingdom of Far Far Away. Zorro-like assassin Puss in Boots (Banderas) is hired to do away with the ogre interloper and restore the natural order. But the plotters have underestimated Fiona's love, Shrek's sense of self-worth and the loyalty of their asinine sidekick, Donkey (Murphy). More contrived than clever, the in-jokey movie parodies are funny but lazy. The slapdash selection of music is often smeared on to disguise the erratic pacing. Nevertheless, the dazzling fairytale ball finale will probably blind viewers to these many imperfections.
