Gods and Dogs

About

The Rude Mechanical Theatre Company are coming to Eastbourne! 

You won’t want to miss their brand of high tempo, physical theatre performed by some of the best actor / musicians around and designed to make you laugh out loud… and make you think, performed in a beautiful circus tent in Helen Garden.

A hilarious comedy, Gods and Dogs is set in 2084 on the fictitious island of Abatina in a world where people are either glamorous celebrities or slobbering dog-like followers of them gripped to their telepafones – with the exception of the Nevnops (Not Very Nice People) as the President, Big Al, calls them.

The story follows Tina who enters ‘Marriage Maker’, a ‘telepavision’ gameshow. The idea of the game is if you win you get to marry the super-glamorous footballer, Harry Best, on the Saturday, have a weekend of love, then divorce him on the Monday. ‘All the fun & no ties!’ as the compere, Rich Nobb, puts it.

Unfortunately, Tina makes the mistake of falling in love when she wins & doesn’t want to divorce. Doreen, her best friend, has her own opinion, but then she might be a Nevnop & the Mind Police might get to her first & send her to the wolves on the ‘Other Side’ - a dangerous world over ‘the mountain’ where the inhabitants of Abatina, according to Big Al, must not go, with dangerous free-thinkers & wolves that might get them.

Will Tina get her man? Will Doreen escape the Mind Police? You’ll have to put your telepafones away and come to find out! Get your tickets now.
