Award-winning Bristol company The Wardrobe Ensemble (Education, Education, Education and 1972: The Future of Sex) present an odyssey of revenge from the mean streets of Bristol to the perilous cliffs of Cornwall, via Wookey Hole, the Eden Project and Easton-in-Gordano services.
Mae is on a mission. With a shotgun in one hand, a packet of pickled onion Monster Munch in the other, and an expired 16-25 railcard in her back pocket, she picks her way through her past in search of answers. En route she meets Anne Gough, a maverick drifter, and together they wend their way through wind and rain to reach the final frontier of the South West: The Wayfarer’s Arms.
Notorious villains, uneasy alliances, epic showdowns and an epic cinematic score, The Wardrobe Ensemble present the world premiere of this epic tale of blood, guts and cider: a spaghetti western with Cornish pasties.
Alongside South Western The Wardrobe Ensemble present The Frontier Sessions, a nightly hoedown in the interval, featuring different local musicians including Sam Brookes, Claire Northey, The Bayou Tapestry, Antoine & Owena and Circe’s Diner.
