Heather And Harry (Stumble Trip Theatre)

By | Published on Sunday 26 August 2018

It’s not often you see the Greek God Zeus take to the stage, adorned in a white leotard, and grace us all with a rap solo. It turns out that he’s not too chuffed with his wife Heather, who has a keen interest in the mortals down on Earth, leaving the overbearing-misogynistic Zeus with no other choice but to banish her. But it’s when Heather meets Harry that the story really gets underway, as together they discover all the wonders of love, life and what it really means to be human. It’s undeniably cheesy, but too charming and heart-warming for that to matter. Fusing mime, cabaret and original music, these boundlessly energetic Le-Coq trained clowns, alongside an exceptionally talented live musician, create a theatrical experience that is truly unique.

Zoo Charteris, until 27 Aug.
