Ripple had a great day out yesterday. We travelled on the cross-county train, from Plymouth via Exeter to BARNSTAPLE. If you’ve never taken this trip we would recommend you give it a go. Don’t forget to get a Devon & Cornwall railcard though – £6.40 return, Bargain!
There is so much to see on the trip: industrial landscapes; rural towns; the sea; the Exe Valley; the beautiful Devon countryside. Just wonderful.
The purpose of our journey was to deliver flyers and posters for our forthcoming show at Barnstaple Theatre Fest and to take a look around the venue we will be performing at – St Anne’s Chapel . Bill & Gill of Multi Story (who are organising the event) very kindly agreed to meet us there and gave us a little tour of the space. We are very excited about the prospect of performing our piece here in June. St Anne’s Chapel is an intimate, characterful space with huge potential. Set within a little cluster of ecclesiastical buildings, behind the main shops, it truly is a hidden treasure. My mind is already spinning with other ideas for future projects here, but that will have to wait.
We will be performing an extract of our new show “Johnny Mathis Killed Our Christmas” on Saturday 31st May at The barbican theatre, as part of the Beta5 scratch night. Tickets are only £3.00 and details can be found here or you can check out the Barnstaple Theatre Fest website for details of the June festival.
