With the world struggling to find a new norm in these ever-changing circumstances, never has the phrase “the show must go on” been more apparent. 

This is a production of which any director, cast and theatre company should be proud.

What becomes of the broken arted? They are cast from paradise according to Neil La Bute’s The Shape of Things.

Ash has written a book ‘Surf by Day, Jam by Night’ and has also, with his wife, created Earth Bottles, dealing with problems of single-use plastics, encompassing drink bottles, coffee cups and straws. So much talent wrapped up with so many guitars.
