Companions of the Clouds

Friday 11th August 16:00

Priest's House Museum and Garden, in association with Persuasion Arts, State of Play and ScreenPLAY present:

Companions of the Clouds
with Millstream Theatre

A story journey around the beautiful Priest’s House Museum Garden. In a world that seems confusing and dangerous, Selena requires courage and creativity to complete her quest.
What are these strange creatures she meets and how can they help Selena?
Can she summon the courage to go into her late grandfather’s shed which has always been out of bounds – and what will she find there ?
Can Selena conquer her fears and defeat the dragon lurking in wait for her?
With the help of the Companions of the Clouds, she might just make it…..

A mixture of drama, Animation and movement, Companions of the Clouds
includes an installation - Grandfather’s Shed – which will be available throughout the festival.

The show springs from the enchanting atmosphere of the Priest’s House Museum, as perceived by the Millstream Theatre members, supported by local theatre and film makers - Tam Gilbert, Tony Horitz, Gill Horitz and Alastair Nisbet.
“What a great show and well done everyone involved”

“Very informative, fun, happy, moving, impressive performances, cast and audience loved it, it was something exceptional indeed.”

“Excellent production with great variety of ideas and movement. Well done all”
