Baked Alaska - Riding Lights Theatre Company returns...

On Wednesday 23 September the Riding Lights Theatre Company makes a return visit to St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, with the play ‘Baked Alaska’ by Paul Burbridge and Jonathan Bidgood. The performance begins at 7.00 pm.

In the high-energy, ‘seriously funny’ style for which Riding Lights is well known, Baked Alaska focuses on the realities of climate change with lots of flair, humour and clarity. Baked Alaska is part of the company’s autumn Tour, which is sponsored by Christian Aid and Operation Noah.

‘We are pleased to welcome back this energetic group of actors with their thought-provoking and yet humorous style of theatre,’ comments Canon Philip Banks, who has oversight of arts and events at the Cathedral. ‘The Cathedral space lends itself to theatre, and this is a welcome addition to our busy autumn arts programme.’

The storyline is as follows: An island in the South Pacific has a problem. It’s hollow. Anxiety levels are rising in a North American boardroom. Eve’s garden is bursting with next door’s rubbish. Even the ducks have relocated… they’re in Bangladesh. From the four corners of the earth come colourful, inter-connecting stories of humanity living with the wild, unpredictable effects of climate change. We’re all in the mix and hungry for a recipe of hope. In the struggle over power, some sound the warming bell, some blow hot and cold, while others make a pudding of the planet.

Tickets cost £12 / £9 (concessions) / £7.50 (under 18s in groups of 8+). Ticket sales are handled direct by the Riding Lights Theatre Company (Tel: 01904 613000 or online here. Tickets can also be purchased in person in advance from the Cathedral Office (01284 748720).
