Cat's Cradle a satire cult classic

CORNWALL'S Miracle Theatre is bringing an unusual treat to the Sleaford area with the first UK stage adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's cult classic, Cat's Cradle.

This zany satire on our obsession with modern science, which promises progress while actually bringing about the end of the world, is more relevant today than when it became an instant best-seller in 1963. Kurt Vonnegut liked to use laughter to explore important themes (in this case the effects of human behaviour on the planet) and Cat’s Cradle is a perfect vehicle for Miracle’s established blend of physical theatre, comedy, film and music.

The show will be at Chestnut Street School, Chestnut Street, Ruskington, on February 11.

“For this production we have employed techniques more usually seen on the big screen to bring this fast moving story to the small stage,” says Miracle’s artistic director Bill Scott.

“Our creative team has now worked together on several films as well as many Miracle shows. A production process has evolved using video, models, blue screen and digital animation, woven into live performance, that will give a unique style to Cat’s Cradle.”

Well known for its unique style of comedy and physical theatre, Miracle Theatre has been touring the country for 30 years. You are promised an evening of exciting and extraordinary visual theatre on an unforgettable ride to the Caribbean island of San Lorenzo.

Cat’s Cradle is recommended for audiences aged 12+.

The show starts at 7pm. For tickets, priced at 5, call 01526 832424.
