Characters need children’s help to make noise in Bedford show

Sounds are running low  so Albee and Andromeda need some assistance
Sounds are running low  so Albee and Andromeda need some assistance

An epic tale of love, adventure and a sound-hoover called Mustard comes to Bedford this week to entertain young theatregoers.

Albee Vector the Sound Collector will be performed at the Quarry Theatre on Saturday, October 29. The audience will find out how Albee and his love Andromeda survived kings, curses and cruelty on their quest for beautiful sound in the world.

In the play’s world, sounds are running low, so Albee will need a few more noises to tell this particular story. He’ll need the audience’s help to make popping, fizzing, hissing, clopping, whizzing, whooshing and banging noises.

The show is presented by Greenlight Theatre. The company explores how technology opens up communication channels and affects the way we think and behave.

Broadway Baby described the show as “everything that children’s theatre should be – vivid, imaginative and downright funny”. The Scotsman hailed it as “a real gem”, while Edfringe Review said of it: “There is nothing this show doesn’t have.”

The show starts at 2.30pm, runs for 55 minutes and is suitable for ages four and above.
