INDIGO MOON THEATRE & COMPAGNIE VIA CANE present Shakespeare versus Moliere

If Shakespeare and Moliere were our contemporaries what would they write about migrants today?

A wave of migrants has landed on French and English shores, all hoping for a better life. Grandeur and decadence, social upheaval and love affairs are brought to life by a puppeteer from each country, each in the role of a border guard… a highly visual bilingual production, applying classic texts to very modern migration.

Using table–top puppetry, acting , objects, live cued music & projection, this show concerns the migrant crisis and abuse of power … even more relevant in today's political climate.. and puts into question the role of Shakespearean witches reincarnated in the form of Weapons, Media and Money.

"... brilliant puppetry for grown ups, very relevant to today's changing world of National and International politics" Audience Member, Beverley Puppet Festival.

No prior knowledge of Shakespeare , Moliere or French is necessary for this accessible tragicomedy.

Suitable for adults and children aged 12+.
