Brilliance - a play by Farnham Maltings - Saturday 17th November 2018

Another specially-made-for-village-halls play with music takes place in The Watson Institute on Saturday November 17th. It’s 1948 and 1963, winter. Everyone is gathering in the village hall.  Lightning has struck the hall roof.  Mrs Atkinson has called the repairman – a man who can fix a creaking door, and chimneys that smoke.  In he comes with his daughter, bright blue eyes full of brilliance, like an animal in from the woods. Long after its arrival in the city, the slow process of rural electrification is starting to illuminate every corner and crevice of village life. As the dark evenings hold us in, 240 volts of alternating current and the humble electric light bulb allow us to gather and sing long into the night. Brilliance is a 90-minute theatrical event that celebrates progress and change in a bright new world. From the company that brought The Iranian Feast and In Praise of Elephants to Castle Carrock, Brilliance is a new show from Farnham Maltings made especially for rural venues. Tickets are £10 or £5 for under 18s from Tom Speight on 01228 670054
