Two plays at the Riverhead Theatre

TWO very different performances take to the stage at the Louth Riverhead Theatre this coming week.

On Saturday, October 29, Tortoise in a Nutshell present The Last Miner.

Using puppetry, light and an innovative soundscape, The Last Miner is an immersive, original tale remembering an amazing life amongst the coal dust.

For years one man has lived underground in the place he used to work, hiding from his memories and the constantly changing world above. But as the roof of his home begins to collapse and his past comes flooding back, he’ll be left with a choice. Should he stay down below? Or come back up into the world he left so long ago?

Performances are at 11am and 2.30pm, with tickets £6 adults and £3 under 14s.

Then, on Wednesday, November 2, Half Moon Young People’s Theatre will present an urban thriller, Look to the Sky.

In a lonely, disused warehouse a search along dark corridors and winding stairs by a group of teenagers leads to a discovery, which will change their lives.

The mysterious and complicated culture of inner-city youth is exploded in this gripping new play, which breathes with a raw poetic language.

Performance time is 7.30pm, with tickets £9 and £7.
