The Rivers Tours: The Thames

5 September 2023 @ 19:30 20:30

A theatrical journey brimming with wit, full of history, nature and human invention

“What makes a river special is what happens on it, along it and in it”

Spend a relaxing hour with Craig Stephens, from the theatre company Stan’s Cafe, as he takes us on a trip down the River Thames. Our journey brimming with nature, history, inspiring art and design, tales of sewerage and ceaseless human intervention is illustrated by a beautiful 1.7m long textile ribbon map made by the artist Vicky Roden.

Beautifully written, engagingly performed, witty and educational.

This simple piece of documentary storytelling is a high quality treat.

Stan’s Cafe have been making and touring original theatre from their base in Birmingham for over 50 years. Their playful, inventive performances have toured the world.
