The Queen of Hearts is on the war path…It’s down to Alice to save everyone’s head by throwing her a tea-party along with the help of her new friends…a Turtle who’d rather be singing, a Cook with a pepper addiction, a Hatter who’s quite mad, a Rabbit with a time keeping problem and one very naughty Cat….what could go wrong?

This summer The Common Players encounter Lewis Carrol via Monty Python and welcome you to the madness and mayhem of Wonderland!

Expect larger than life characters, puppets, live music, dancing and lashings of absurdity.

Gather your friends and family, pack a picnic, bring a blanket or chair to sit on and join us down the rabbit hole.

There is also an option to pre-book a ‘Picnic in the Paddock’, either a Cream tea or a Quarryman’s savoury tea.

Don’t be late, it’s a very important date!

Please note, online sales stop 24hours before the event, there after tickets can be purchased on the gate for a slightly increased amount.

First reading of the Beer Quarry Caves Quantum Operetta.

Awaiting Corona virus Finish, was planned for 30th May 2020: Time to be decided.

A first reading and songs from an operetta being written for the caves by the award winning librettist Kevin Cahill will be held for local drama groups from East Devon. Entrance is free that evening and will be followed by a glass of wine and a discussion at the kiosk.

Kevin’s first operetta Dado, based on the Devon writer John Gay’s Beggar’s Opera, won major awards in Ireland when it was performed in Cork, Derry, Dublin and at other places. It was later performed at the National Liberal Club in London and at the Novosti Theater in Moscow. 

This operetta is a love story based on a girl of Beer who becomes a Channel 4 news presenter. When she was young she and two friends had a Quantum epiphany  underneath a crack created in the cave walls by a seismic event 120 million years ago. (The crack is still there) When  an international conglomerate tries to take over the caves to store stolen data, she returns to Beer to investigate. In the last scene the Royal Marines arrive and all ends well with the baddies banged up in Exeter jail. 

 

Maybe we will be able to have another Spooky Hallowe’en Tour this year!
