Mavis Sparkle (M6 Theatre Company)

By | Published on Saturday 19 August 2017

Mavis is a cleaner who likes to make everything shiny. She loves her job and she loves doing it with a bit of added sparkle, but don’t get her chatting because she’ll never stop! ‘Mavis Sparkles’ sees the daughter of a magician and a ballet dancer searching for magic in the everyday. As the audience are introduced to Mavis, we find out that it’s her last day at this particular cleaning job and we join her on the hunt for a new adventure. The set is endlessly entertaining in itself, turning from one thing to another and constantly revealing new treasures. All eyes (big or small) were firmly on Mavis throughout this hour-long performance. A beautifully performed story with a lot of heart.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 20 Aug.
