The current migrant crisis affecting the majority of Europe is at the centre of this brand new production by a Midlands theatre company. The new play, entitled Mausoleum: Tales of Chaos and Claustrophobia, is brought to the stage by Staffordshire-based Fired Up Theatre.
Mausoleum will be performed at the Lichfield Garrick theatre on Friday 27 and Saturday 28 May, with both performances commencing at 7.45pm. The production explores the lives and stories of a group of refugees and migrants crammed into a container. Delivered through a narrative of poetry, the production discovers the horrors and traumas, along with joys and mirth, as the blanket of war and conflict unfolds.
Lichfield Garrick playing host to Fired Up Theatre company
Fired Up Theatre is a professional community theatre company that sets out to devise, write and perform challenging 'outside of the box ' performing arts works, that combine the talents of both professional and non professional artists from theatre, literature, music, film, dance, technical, community and educational back grounds. The company was established by Simon Quinn in 2004 to provide theatre skills into schools, taking on difficult themes and subjects that impact the lives of students and exploring them through drama.
The performance of Mausoleum, which starts at 7.45pm on both May 27 and 28, will be followed by a discussion with the cast, director and writer. Tickets cost £15 (£11 for students), and can be booked online at www.lichfieldgarrick.com or by calling Lichfield Garrick's Box Office on 01543 412121.
