With falling buildings, dare-devil escapology, silent comedy and live piano accompaniment, CLIFFHANGER! has proved to be Bash Street Theatre’s most successful and enduring street theatre show.
Inspired by Buster Keaton’s short film ‘Convict 13’, CLIFFHANGER! is a silent-movie style production that returns to the golden age of the silver screen. This action-packed family show, enjoyed by audiences of young and old alike, has recently been revised and re-worked to include three new young performers, all members of the Bash Street Theatre family.
The story follows the fortunes of a love-sick café waiter as he becomes innocently embroiled in a prison escape. When the heroine is abducted by a convict, there ensues a series of hair-raising episodes as our hero strives to rescue his new-found love.
CLIFFHANGER! has toured throughout the UK and extensively in Europe, with performances in France, Belgium, Holland, Norway, Germany, Poland, Romania, Hungary, Republic of Ireland, Italy, Portugal and Spain, where it won the ‘Best Street Theatre Show’ award at the prestigious Fira Tarrega International Theatre Festival.
The show is ideal for all ages and will be performed in the beautiful gardens of Beaminster Manor by kind permission of Mrs Christine Wood. Do wake up the grandparents, bring a picnic and enjoy a real family afternoon of fun and laughter!
