It’s Halloween and we’re feeling spooky. We love any reason to dress up, drink and dance – the triple D!
This Halloween is extra special though, as we’re heading back to Bristol – Stoke’s Croft to be précised. Our super duper talented housemate, Chris White, is an incredible poet. An insanely, profoundly, hilariously great one, at that. HE’S GOING PLACES!
But anyway – he’s written a play, called Bart, and wanted us to bring it to life. So for Sharp Teeth at The Art House we performed Bart – the spooky tale of Ellis and Ella two brats who receive a Cat (played by Kat) for Christmas. We’ve recruited Hugh McCann to inject the show with keyboarding insanity and a flashing head torch.
It’s been so fun. And we had a hilarious time. Nora has lost her voice from screaming and screeching as the little brat Ellis. Dora gave up on the lines half way through, but styled it out as the precocious Ella. And Kat’s face is still completely red from smearing it with fake blood during her death scene. Hugh’s keyboard skills added an extra chill and haunting quality to the performance – and boy he perfectly used those keyboard demos. We all quite appropriately corpsed.
Chris also performed some of his poetry – and was brilliant. His poem on destroying a bee’s hive is too funny, ahhhhh. We drove away that night, in Nora’s shaggin waggin, feeling like a really cool band on tour – maybe even going places?
