WHATEVER THE WEATHER  – the egg theatre

WHATEVER THE WEATHER explores our ever-changing climate and the importance of friendship in an imaginative new show for family audiences at the egg theatre

Pop on your shades, bring your brolly and be blown away by Whatever the Weather, M6 Theatre Company’s delightful new show for families aged 3 to 103, appearing at Bath’s egg theatre from Thursday 19th to Saturday 21st March.

In a colourful weather house on a quiet wall, each day Mr Rain and Mrs Sunshine report if it’s going to be wet and windy or sunny and dry. The pair couldn’t be more different. Living together but always apart, day after day, month after month, year after year – but what would happen if they came alive?

This imaginative production is set in the charming world of a traditional Alpine Weather House as the winds of change blow so hard that everything becomes topsy-turvy. What will Mr Rain and Mrs Sunshine learn as they are faced with new and unfamiliar conditions? Come rain or shine, gusts or gales, the show must go on whatever the weather!

Whatever the Weather has been produced in association with Polka Theatre and created and directed by artistic director Gilly Baskeyfield. Performed by Guy Hargreaves as Mr Rain and Simone Lewis as Mrs Sunshine, the show features an inventive and original music score by composer Jon Nicholls, and a stunning set created by designer and production manager Joss Matzen.

Speaking about the show, Gilly Baskeyfield says: “Whatever the Weather brings with it lots of laughter, but also engages the audience in an emotional journey of two characters facing the challenge of learning to share their environment and get along with each other.

The show is a visual delight where our imaginations are allowed to roam around in the curious, multi-sensory world of the weather house. Children and their families will enjoy the fun and surprises on offer, yet care and empathise with the characters as they let go of their loneliness and discover the joys of friendship.“

M6 Theatre Company, founded in 1977 and based in Rochdale, is acknowledged as one of Britain’s leading touring theatre companies specialising in creating and delivering high quality theatre for young audiences.
