Shakespeare Versus MoliereThe Shakespeare Versus Moliere Puppet Show at the Upfront Arts Venue near Hutton in the Forest, Skelton, is highly visual puppetry with a global flavour for children 12+ and adults, presented by Indigo Moon Theatre (UK) & Compagnie Via Cane (France).

If Shakespeare and Moliere were our contemporaries, what would they write about migrants come from the world over? A wave of migrants has landed on French and English shores, all hoping for a better life - grandeur and decadence, social upheaval and love affairs are brought to life by a performer from each country.

A highly visual bilingual production, applying classic texts to the very contemporary context of migration. Using table-top puppetry, acting, objects, live cued music and projection, this show concerns the migrant crisis and the abuse of power. It puts into question the role of Shakespearean witches, reincarnated in the form of Weapons, Media and Money.

Friday 1:45pm & 7:30pm. Students £7.00; Adults £10 (booking fees apply). Book Tickets Online or cash on the door.
