Moonfleet

7th Nov 2009 - 3:00pm

The Arts Centre

Angel Exit Theatre presents Moonfleet.

Tickets £4.00 all.

A straggling gang of hilarious buffoons are washed up amongst the flotsam onto the wild shores of Chesil Beach, and conspire to spin this yarn of a young orphan boy clashing with both smugglers and excise men in his quest to find Blackbeard’s lost treasure.

Inspired by the rugged landscape of the Dorset coastline and J Meade Falkner’s classic novel Moonfleet, Angel Exit weave together live music, striking physicality, storytelling and puppets to tell a thrilling tale of smuggling, dastardly deeds and wicked escapades.

“There is so much vivid theatricality and inventiveness at work here that I am already looking forward to its next show” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

Suitable for anyone aged 8 – 80 years.
