The Wheelabouts – ‘Boudicca’
Amassing her army of Celts, Boudicca’s chariot and horse tear across the countryside looking for Romans to pick on and ‘punish’!
With puppetry, props and performance, Boudicca will be an exciting gallop with audience participation and plenty of comic improvisation!
Boudicca was head of the Celtic Iceni tribe during the Roman occupation of England. The image we hold of her is of a vengeful warrior, bent on seeking out and punishing all Romans!
The Wheelabouts produce mobile street theatre pieces built around wheelchairs, and their latest show takes us on the Roman road with Boudicca.
Boudicca will be rampaging through the country aboard a stunning Chariot led by a galloping mechanical horse, accompanied by a raucous soundtrack. On board will be an arsenal of comedy props and weapons, to equip her followers and mete out her ‘justice’.
Watch out Romans…!
