Join us for a fabulous evening of theatre with Chris Lynam!…
ErictheFred , an intriguing story of a trouper grappling with a fading career. Flickering thoughts and projected dreams blur the lines between the real and ethereal. Original film, music, puppetry, clowning create an unnervingly familiar world of slapstick, tragedy and joy.

Beautiful images, wonderful original score from Kevin Sargent.  A reminder that life is painful ,sad, joyful and blissful all at once.
