4.3 Miles From Nowhere (Fine Chisel Theatre)

By | Published on Tuesday 23 August 2011

A group of unlikely friends are stranded in the woods overnight after breaking down on the way to a fancy dress party. A simple enough coming-of-age plotline, you may think, but mix in some comedy, interpretive dance and, say, a live folk band and you have a Fine Chisel Theatre production. As the plot develops into a ‘rich boy falls for working class girl’ story, the group explore love, lust, sorrow, anger, joy, fear, courage and a whole other spectrum of emotional themes. This may sound rather cluttered, but works really well, and director Tom Spencer has written it in such a way that it is really easy and enjoyable to follow. Worth a see if you get the chance.

Zoo, 5 – 29 Aug (not 16), 3.00pm (4.00pm), £7.00 – £10.00, fpp263.
