Silence

Storyteller Rachel Rose Reid brings her new show to Totnes this April! SILENCE is a tale of naughty trysts and gender shifts, chivalry and shade, nature and nurture, music, mayhem, and a ravenous Merlin on the trail of a juicy bit of steak. In the whole World, only one manuscript unfolds the Roman de Silence, inscribed in 13th century Cornwall & discovered at Wollaton Manor, Nottinghamshire in 1911 in a box marked 'Old Papers, No Value'. It was too hot to handle. Suffrage protests were at their explosive height, & this tale suggested that England & King Arthur's lineage both depended on a quest for female freedom. So the legend was silenced once more. But the story was made to be told. Now is the time to tell it. "Immense skill and breathless conviction...There's no faulting Reid's command of her craft" The Times Rachel Rose Reid is a UK-based storyteller who has performed around the World and for BBC Radio 3, the Crick Crack Club, & Beyond the Border. Starts at 7.30 pm at Totnes Methodist Church.

History, History, History

Friday 20th and Saturday 21st April, 8pm Barn Cinema, Dartington £12 | £10 Concessions Suitable for ages 12+ Please note that latecomers cannot be admitted In 1956, there was a popular uprising against the USSR in Hungary. The battle was fought primarily from the Corvin Cinema, and the uprising lead to one of the largest refugee crises of the twentieth century. In a live commentary screening of a 1956 comedy about football, scheduled to premiere at the Corvin Cinema the week of the uprising, Deborah Pearson unlocks a surprisingly personal story. A documentary, performed live, the performance runs the length of and is timed alongside the film, using interviews with the exiled screenwriter and people involved with the film to playfully reflect on immigration, suppression, and our personal links with history. This is a show for lovers of cinema, and for anyone who has stared at pictures of their ancestors a little too long. With dramaturgy by Daniel Kitson, and outside eye work by Tania El Khoury and Laura Dannequin, History History History has been performed in 9 countries to universal critical acclaim.
