Surprise is the key when ‘Little and Large’ of Shakespeares world prance onto the scene presenting personalised odes to the gathered audience. These larger than life characters will also mix n mingle amongst your guests creating song and revelry wherever they go! Why not use them as comedy Shakespearian doormen welcoming your guests as they arrive with a Hey Noney Noney and a No Trainers Here!?
Three actors, a trunk of props and a stop watch. That is all that is required as we race through 500,000 years of hysterical history in thirty minutes. Companies, castles, stately homes, restoration sites, ruins, city centres. If there is a story to be told, we can tell it. Just give us the facts, the legends, the background, the truth or the fiction and we will write and perform a script that will have you howling with laughter and yelling encore!
It’s the 1920s – The Prohibition Act has hit us all like a freight train without a driver! The only parties in town are the illegal ones. Don Gorgonzola can’t resist a good bash and he can provide all the right ingredients… at a price: the bootlegging, the brothels and the casinos. He’s so big in Chicago, even Capone’s heavies give him a wide birth. You’ve done him some favours in the past and now you’re ‘family’.
The Don loves his ‘family’, and really hates disappointment, so when you discover an invitation to his party under your bowl of Linguini in Mamma Maria’s, you know what your reply is going to be! Every evening hosted by the Don is an affair to remember. Hoodlums - wear your best pin stripes, brogues and felt hats. Flappers - wear your beaded, sparkly dresses; the Don likes his broads looking luscious. You will dine in refined splendour and enjoy classy entertainment in a secret location, where the outside world is kindly requested to stay away. Oh, and if the Cops bend your ear, you tell em zip. Capishe?
