23:00, Wed 30th January – Sat 2nd February 2013 at ADC Theatre
Lent Week 2
35 Characters. 5 Actors. 1 Farce.
An Italian Straw Hat follows the hapless bridegroom Fadinard on his wedding day as he blazes through the streets of Paris and the idyllic French countryside on a futile quest to return a straw hat to a promiscuous young lady. Along the way Fadinard is followed by his pertinacious Father in Law and eight cabs of wedding guests throwing at the audience a whirlwind of relentless activity. Join these five intrepid actors as they are pushed to their limits to provide a dazzlingly multi-role extravaganza of a show. A celebration of vaudeville; it promises slapstick, dance, puppetry, a live band and cream pies. It will provide unadulterated mirth, joy and anarchy to the late night Cambridge audiences. Farce like you’ve never seen it before.
