Ian Pearce looks back at his deluded teenage years. Being a trainee butcher at the Co-op is only a temporary situation before he reveals his true artistic talents to the world. No careers officer or personnel manager is going to stop him producing his rock album, publishing his poetry or mounting his first exhibition. A world of awkward romantic relationships, Sex Pistols, Crossroads and Angel Delight. An honest and clear-eyed view of his younger self. Yes, he freely admits, I really was that stupid.
The Cavalry Twill Incident
A generally light-hearted, though occasionally poignant, tale of personal reminiscence. Tim Knight introduces us to his family, examining his parents’ relationship and illustrating the often conflicting emotions and frictions which lie at the heart of family life. Centred on an unforgettable event from Tim’s youth, The Cavalry Twill Incident is storytelling which is both entertaining and thought provoking.
It is four years since Ian Pearce and Tim Knight of Adaptable Theatre last performed at The Swallow Theatre (Double Dickens) and we are delighted that they are returning with an evening of dramatised storytelling packed with poignancy, nostalgia and laughter.
