The Rudes are back at Sussex Prairie Garden
Put Sunday 30thJune in your diary to see the Rude Mechanical Theatre who will be at Sussex Prairie Garden again for their annual outdoor theatre. They will be performing a revival of their inspiring ‘Ikarus Inc’, a play about hopes and dreams. You won’t want to miss it! Set in the little town of Dreamville, Indiana, in the ‘50’s, a travelling salesman, Daedalus H. Gildersleeves, and his son Ikarus, sell dreams from a suitcase. Secret hopes are laid bare as they begin to fly the townsfolk up into the clear blue skies to their dreams. Hilarious, romantic, tender, searching – and laced with rock’n’roll! Meanwhile the ladies of the local Buffalos Club – the Buffalesses – enter a competition to make the biggest pumpkin pie ever to raise money for ‘the sufferin’ poor’. For Ol’ Mercy Coffin it is just the devil tempting them. But will they fly and achieve their dreams or come crashing down to the cold hard earth? Will the pumpkin pie get baked? Will they win the competition? “Hilarious, romantic, tender, searching – and laced with rock’n’roll!” Tickets are £17 + concessions – available from the garden, by ringing 01323-501260 & online at www.therudemechanicaltheatre.co.uk. Bring a picnic to enjoy in the garden from 530pm onwards , your own chair and warm clothing for an English summer.
