Your Best Guess, 7th June, 20:00 at South Street
We can’t help living in the future – booking flights for holidays, organizing birthday parties, writing applications, sending out invitations, producing T-shirts for tours. But all of this is merely supposition. When the time comes, these things may happen according to plan, or they may not. Life is entirely unpredictable. But what if we could rewrite history? What if we could imagine that things had turned out differently even if they had not? What if we could anticipate all roads to the future, so that we could be prepared for any possible scenario? Portuguese theatre company mala voadora and writer and performer Chris Thorpe collaborate in Your Best Guess to investigate this unpredictability. They explore more concrete phenomena such as undetonated bombs, goodbye letters, ghost cities, amulets. And, intrigued by the way we bet on the future, they will locate that exact point of consciousness at which things either work out as planned or go awry.
Reviews of Peter Pan
9th December 2017 to 7th January 2018
Review from GetReading.
Peter Pan at The Hexagon is an extravagant and lively pantomime for the entire family
A typical pantomime spin on the JM Barrie classic that is bound to have you in stitches
"dripping with melodrama, full of audience participation and as flamboyant as possible, The Hexagon's Peter Pan is everything a pantomime should be... the show was a roaring success that had children jumping in their seats and yelling to the stage in excitement, with humour that even the adults could appreciate"
There is a review from Wokingham Today ("another smash-hit this Christmas... just the perfect blend of slapstick, slosh, songs and surprises ensuring a memorable night out... the packed theatre was full of people with beaming smiles on their faces... Peter Pan flies high and a must-see festive treat. It’s a feel good show that gets the whole family laughing and laughing and laughing" - 5 stars).
