Gipsy’s Acre was a truly beautiful upland site with views out to sea – and in Michael Rogers it stirred a child-like fantasy. There, amongst the dark fir trees, he planned to build a house, find a girl and live happily ever after. Yet, as he left the village, a shadow of menace hung over the land. For this was the place where accidents happened. Perhaps Michael should have heeded the locals’ warnings: ‘There’s no luck for them as meddles with Gipsy’s Acre.’ Michael Rogers is a man who is about to learn the true meaning of the old saying ‘In my end is my beginning.’
A durational reading of one of Agatha Christie’s ‘late’ works. Imagine a place where a few people gather to read a story. One starts reading, gets tired – another takes over – the characters depicted and the voices heard start to become one and the same on a strange, beguiling and wonderful journey that leads into the expansive and star-filled night.
Devised and performed with Valmai Jones, John Rowley, Mary-Anne Roberts, Rebecca Knowles, David Norton, Nathalie Lloyd and other guests.
