Theatre Akimbo bring their brand of fringe theatre to Worthing with their production of Robert Farquhar’s elegiac comedy Dust To Dust at Coast Cafe on Friday, September 6 and Saturday, September 7.
Part ghost story, part road movie, Dust To Dust is a passionate story of life, love and death, says Glenda Harkess, Theatre Akimbo’s artistic director.
Mick Finnegan’s death comes as a shock to his friends – Holly (Anna Quick), Henry (Will Hackett) and Kev (James Etheridge).
“This trio of misfits are imperceptibly pulled together by the absence of Mick as they lurch from boozy brawl to soul-searching clarity and back again while sorting out his possessions, tying up the loose ends of his life and making funeral arrangements. It’s an epic journey of friends’ lost and found – darkly comic, profoundly bittersweet.”
Glenda added: “We’re thrilled to be working with Coast on this project and hope it is the start of an exciting relationship with the venue and for fringe theatre in the town.
“Coast is a particularly poignant venue for the play as it’s partly set on the beach.
“It’s a great intimate piece of theatre, three actors engaging directly with the audience, getting up close and personal to share their stories and deepest feelings, its Robert Farquhar at his messiest, eloquent best!
“Dust To Dust runs for two nights only, on Friday, September 6 and Saturday, September 7 at 7.45pm.
“Tickets are only a fiver, available from Coast cafe or http://www.wegottickets.com/theatreakimbo.”
