Barton Arts Festival – Mitch Benn: Don’t Fear The Reaper

It’s been a morbid time for Mitch. He’s turned 47 – over the hill by anyone’s standards – his personal life is in turmoil and his childhood heroes are dropping like flies. At times like these, a man feels the Reaper creeping up on him… But is death anything to fear? And is it really the end? (Yes. Yes it is, sorry) Mitch confronts his, and your, mortality with hilarious (and tuneful) consequences. Join him. It’s time in your life you’re not getting back!

Billionaire-Boy-880px

This adaptation of David Walliams’ Billionaire Boy tells the story of Joe who has a lot of reasons to be happy. About a billion of them, in fact as he’s rich, really, really rich with his own bowling alley, his own cinema, even his own butler who is also an orangutan. He’s the wealthiest 12 year old in the land. Yes, Joe has absolutely everything he could possibly want but there’s just one thing he really needs – a friend.
