A new dance production inspired by folk tales from Dorset, Somerset and Devon.Trapped in a living state of limbo, Jay is controlled by her over-protective sister on one side and drawn to an intriguing creature offering her a sense of freedom on the other. Folklore is a tale of confronting inner fears and the struggles we go through with ourselves and loved ones. Original recorded music composed by Ninebarrow (BBC 2 Folk Award Nominees 2017). Before the show, participants from Dorset Youth Dance will perform a curtain raiser and the show will be followed by a question and answer session.

The Mikado by Gilbert & Sullivan
Set in Japan, The Mikado presents a tangled web of love. Nanki-Poo, the son of the Mikado, flees in search of his true love, YumYum, to avoid marrying a much older suitor. Yum-Yum, however, is betrothed to Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner, against her will. Things, as you can see, are complicated! But can everything be righted before someone loses their head? Expect high jinx, lots of energy and clever wordplay as all is revealed.

June 11th 1685. The Duke of Monmouth lands at Lyme Regis with 83 men to raise a Protestant army against James II, and begin what was to be England’s last rebellion against the Crown. Five weeks later and with a 3000-strong army swelled by dissenting men and women from Dorset, Devon and Somerset, Monmouth prepared to fight the last ever pitched battle on English soil, and the first step towards modern democracy. There will be a post-show question and answer session. Supported by the Marine Theatre, Lyme Regis, and West Dorset District Council.
