This uplifting show will renew your faith in life and darts. Who knows? You might be the best audience in the world.
“Darts is a very theatrical sport and lends itself perfectly to theatre,” said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk. “It’s also a sport played by ordinary men and women and everyone can identify with stepping up to the line and attempting to throw a perfect dart.”
“This is a fantastic show with audiences getting the chance to step up on stage and throw a few darts, eat emergency bananas (vital for all athletes!) and share their own personal triumphs,” Liz continued. “Who knows, the people of Barton might just be the best audience in the world.”
Alex will be on the oche at 8pm for this Unfolding Theatre production in association with LittleMighty. Tickets cost £13 in advance or £15 on the door. Advance tickets can be purchased at www.roperyhall.co.uk, in person at The Ropewalk’s Craft Gallery, or by calling 01652 660380.
