Beneath the Albion Sky – at the Yard

“‘We’re looking at the same stars but not in the same way.’

“One morning not very long ago, Paul woke up, packed his bags and, leaving behind his partner and his job, caught a train to Penzance. From there, armed only with a map found in his father’s belongings, he began to walk St Michael’s Ley Line. Following the path of the sun from St Michael’s Mount to the coast of Suffolk he has been bewitched in Dartmoor, danced with Boudicca and, if we believe him, fought a dragon (or two).

“Now Paul’s here to tell you the story.

“Mixing travelogue with historical fact (and fantasy), Beneath the Albion Sky is a walking story about our relationship with England’s past, the landscape around us and the things our imaginations do to cope with loss.

“Having been developed with the BAC/Latitude Festival, Beneath the Albion Sky premiered at the Bike Shed Theatre as part of Ignite Festival 2013 where it was awarded a Wildfire Critics’ Choice Award.” – from the Yard website

Beneath the Albion Sky has been well received by audiences and critics alike.

“Andy Kelly dominates the space with a performance that is humorous and moving ... Everything comes together to create a piece which is rich and original.” – Kate J Wilson, Wildfire

“In his bewitching deep voice Paul recounts his epic walk following the St. Michael’s Ley Line from Land’s End to Hopton-on-Sea. A mixture of acting, story-telling, good advice, fact and fiction, where he peacefully meets saints, knights and warrior queens, and violently confronts a dragon. Along the way considering our relationship with nature and change.” – The Girl in Row T

As seats at the Yard are unallocated, for this event I won’t be doing a group booking. Please book your own ticket direct with the theatre.

Please contribute £1 on arrival (to help defray the approx. £100 per annum that Meetup charges to run a group) – thanks in advance.

We will have drinks in the theatre cafe-bar after the play, for anyone who would like to stay on afterward for a conversation about the play.

      Thanks Jane. Love post mortems and a fitting accompanient to a drink I find. Thanks for setting this group up and of course more significantly the commitment to follow through. Please feel free to prompt me to assist in defraying costs.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
