Fringe @ PPC
We have two shows appearing at PPC in the 2022 Festival Fringe as we welcome back our friends from Saltmine and Searchlight
Saltmine Theatre Company – August 17th – 20th
In a city just like yours, hope is in short supply. Cynicism reigns; power overrides justice; lying is as easy as breathing. Until one day, a series of peculiar events begins splintering normality: the sick rise from their beds, the dead live again and the oppressed glimpse a life worth living. For the first time, the city’s bloodstream seems to thrum with change. At the centre of it all: a strange man radiating love. How long before the powers that be crack down on this subversive, this quiet revolutionary, this liberator?

Searchlight Theatre Company – August 24th – 27th
A wonderful new reimagining of Corrie Ten Boom’s biographical tale of forgiveness and reconciliation in the shadows of WW2. The family bravely hide Jews in their small clock shop. The consequences are dark and devastating. The production looks not only at the story from Corrie’s viewpoint but also from a German army officer’s angle as well. How do they both regard their families, their faith, the Jewish people and the occupation of Holland? They begin in different worlds, but eventually come face to face with each other. Moving and inspiring, and relevant for today.
