GREEN Ginger is a theatre outfit often lauded by the broadsheets. Now in its fortieth year, the company is celebrating by joining forces with Nordland Visual Theatre on its new production, called ‘Intronauts’, which is visiting the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis.
Inspired by cult 1966 sci-fi film ‘Fantastic Voyage’ and ‘The Numbskulls’ from ‘The Beezer’ comic, it features miniature beings inhabiting a human body.
Crammed with superb visual imagery and inventive puppetry skills, the show tells a simple narrative which draws the audience into the fictional world of the intronaut as she dances through her employer’s body in her pod, becoming ever more isolated and eccentric until she accepts her greatest challenge to date.
Intronauts is aimed at grown-up teenagers and childish adults. Over 40 years, Green Ginger has honed its craft in the creation of darkly comic shows that have a political heart, but do not preach; they’re performances that can touch raw nerves and disturb minds, yet thoroughly entertain its audiences.
“There’s always something wonderfully anarchic about Green Ginger…an inspired mix of art and lunacy” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian.
After the performance the company is taking part in a short question and answer session.
‘Intronauts’ comes to the Marine Theatre on Friday, November 30 with doors opening at 6.30pm for a 7.30pm start.
Tickets cost £12 for adults or £10 for under 25s in advance, or £14 for adults and £11 for under 25s on the door. Theatre Friends will receive a 10% discount.
