house and Theatr Mwldan present the Perth Theatre Company/Weeping Spoon production 


Tour dates: 1 September – 20 October 2012


This exquisite multi award-winning one-man show is a unique and charming performance that’s emotional, uplifting, touching and funny – a heart-warming and beautiful experience that’s a remarkable pocket masterpiece of invention, staging and performance. On a future Earth whose ice caps have melted, rooftops barely provide escape from the rising waters. Our lonely hero Alvin, heartbroken after the loss of his beloved wife, hears a TV plea from Earth HQ seeking a daring soul willing to find a lost oasis at the bottom of the sea that might just save humanity. Using a constantly creative, beguiling and quirky blend of live action, puppetry, animation, music and film, Australian genius Tim Watts tells his story of love, loss and quiet heroism with engaging energy and an enchanting magic. Young and old – both adults and children – will delight in this wonderfully romantic hour of pure abandonment. We can’t recommend this highly enough… bring your friends, bring your family; they will owe you big time! Having charmed audiences worldwide, and received countless five star reviews, Theatr Mwldan and House are delighted to be able to present this gorgeous production on this special tour of Wales and southern England.
