Recent Productions View from the Pen – 2/3 July, Windmill Hill City Farm

Lama

Great to be working with lovely neighbour Windmill Hill City Farm to celebrate their 40th birthday.

A weekend of outdoor performances, all over the farm, to celebrate their 40th birthday (and our 30th!).

Eight great short shows, and four wonderful actors playing all sorts of creatures – spot the crime solving mole, a fox with bags of attitude, and a dove with huge ambitions. Leela Bunce, Rachael Fagan, Kirris Riviere and Chris Yapp bring these and more to life — all weekend, and all free.

Shows 10.30–4.30 both days
