The Rudes are back in North Devon!
The Rude Mechanical Theatre Company present 'The Commercial Traveller'
The Rudes are a company of virtuoso multi-instrumentalist actors bringing Commedia dell’Arte into the 21st century with high energy witty and inventive performances of original stories. Visually vivid, with extraordinary costumes, and very funny. See them in the stunning setting of Tapeley Park.
It is London, 1924, and rich and powerful tycoon and former East End barrow boy, Sir Arthur Cattermole, is not happy. His son, Gerald, whom he has spent his hard earned brass on to go to Eton, is in love with the girl next door, the beautiful Isabelle and daughter of hard up doctor, Cornelius Truss.
Love is a bunch of roses! Money is the thing!
Funny, romantic and moving the play demonstrates the gritty determination to overcome an apparently unassailable problem through absolute love.
The Plough Arts Centre is delighted to be working with Tapely Park on this exciting open-air theatre event.
Refreshments available. Bring seating, blankets, picnics, torch.
