A man excitedly waits for the guests to arrive at his party. The cake is made, the presents have arrived, and the music is playing – all he needs are his friends to make this the best birthday ever. Enter some unexpected guests: a French cyclist, a man dressed as a giant chicken and a mysterious stranger who has apparently never had a birthday. What ensues is an endlessly entertaining topsy-turvy show that humorously explores difficult topics such as sharing, social exclusion, and not always getting what you want.
A fantastically engaging show for young people to enjoy with the whole family … and there’s even pass the parcel.
The Party was created and produced with support from Jacksons Lane and Redbridge Drama Centre.
Cast: Alice Allart, Ed Stephen, Kaveh Rahnama and Tamzen Moulding.
Director: Mary Swan.
