Uninvited Guests

It Is Like It Ought To Be: A Pastoral

£8.00/£6.00 Concs

Having immersed themselves in horror movies for their last show Schlock, Uninvited Guests are now searching for peace, tranquillity and a return to nature. Their new performance It Is Like It Ought To Be: A Pastoral blends influences from The Wicker Man to village fetes, tourist guides to morris dancing. Uninvited Guests create fake folk songs and dances for our green and plastic land in an attempt to find a simpler life, a golden age. Join them as they take refuge in pastoral romance and discover the dark side of this impossible utopia.
