The taste of the good life is coming to farms and pubs of Huddersfield villages this month.
And it’s all part of a pioneering theatre company tour by a group which has moored its normal narrowboat for a new run of performances.
Marsden-based Mikron Theatre are back in the area for three new performances of their latest hit play, which encourages audiences to think about where their food comes from.
Called Till the Cows Come Home, the group’s team of four multi-talented actors will take to the stage on September 19 at Hepworth Village Hall, on September 21 at Stirley Community Farm, and on September 23 at The Golcar Lily to spread the message of sustainable and healthy eating through song, dance and comedy.
It focuses on the worldwide journey of bored local council worker, Harvey Granelli, who dreams of following in the footsteps of his ice-cream maker father, Romeo after being inspired by a dream.
Director of Till the Cows Come Home, Olwen May, who joined forces with Mikron for the first time this year, said: “The company has such a rich history of creating theatre in non-traditional theatre spaces.
“It’s everything I feel theatre should be - accessible, adventurous and with a passion to ask questions of the world we live in.
“Till The Cows Come Home has all the adventure and invention of a Hollywood blockbuster with some real questions about what we do to the food we eat. It’s also fun and chock full of music and humour.”
The shows follow a packed summer England tour, which saw them perform up and down the country’s waterways by narrowboat.
