Oddsocks are back with their ambitious new re-telling of classic English tale of ‘The Legend of King Arthur’. Expect vibrant characters, live music and laughter-a-plenty in their national tour, which began in November 2015. The performance comes to Banbury on Wednesday 17th February 2016 at 7:30pm in the Mill Arts Centre.
Oddsocks Productions was set up 26 years ago by Andy Barrow and Elli Mackenzie and is a critically acclaimed nationally touring theatre company who take classic texts and create bold, challenging, innovative and interactive theatre to be enjoyed by all. Twice a year they tour nationally indoors and outdoors, taking their work out to diverse communities across the UK.
Telling the story of one of the most intriguing and fascinating English legends is an exciting project for Derby-based Oddsocks Productions. After the success of their last winter tour ‘The Wind in the Willows’ this winter sees Oddsocks turn their exceptionally funny hands to the gripping adventures of the Knights of the Round Table.
As well as touring nationally, Oddsocks also run their Open Doors scheme which aims to reach out to disadvantaged groups and engage, inspire and entertain them live theatre. Since November 2014 they’ve been working with national family support charity Home-Start to provide unique theatre experiences for disadvantaged local families.
Describing what an audience can expect at a night at the theatre with Oddsocks, Elli added: “It’s a classic English story with everything you’d want; plenty of action and excitement, lots of comedy, a love story and good triumphing over evil!”
