Mountains of the Moon (A Water Story):
Being developed in conjunction with the Yvonne Arnaud Youth Theatre in Guildford, Surrey.
Written by Thomas Forbes Briscombe and Martin Coslett
A drought is causing the water level in a tributary of the Nile in North Africa to drop.
Whenever there is a full moon, the animals gather near a sacred Carob Tree under a magic blanket of safety.
Owl,Camel, Gecko, (Hairy-Nosed) Bat and Monkey discuss the loss of water and possible solutions to their problem.
Can they find the Rain God to save them from dying of thirst?
Working towards performances in 2018
A recent co-production was: The White Feather at the Union Theatre, Southwark, London. (Arion Productions)
And previously....as well as in 2018 at Rickmansworth
Premiered at the Quaker Meeting House in St Martin’s Lane,
in the heart of London’s theatreland after a brief tour in similar
South of England venues, Perfect City was presented in a
costumed performance in the round.
Astutely directed by Andrew Miller, the show proved an
entertaining mixture of music-theatre styles, its melodic songs
carrying the story to a moving conclusion as Penn’s vision
unfurled of a democratic new city in the New World where
slavery would have no place and each individual could be master of
his or her own fate.
Any thoughts that such a subject might be too specialised for a
wider audience were soon swept away by the young cast and
the uniformly excellent material that had been honed by the team
over several years.
There can be little doubt that The Perfect City will go on to entertain
a wider audience as the team now begins the task of raising funds
to mount it elsewhere in Britain.”
