A shed load of ideas
Earnest companions, overalls, invention, a pet cat, a cup of tea, ramshackle engineering, precise timing and a catapult of faith in this creatively funny, chain reaction of a show
A Heath Robinson/Rube Goldberg-esque contraption assembled by two, 'earnest', non-speaking, workmen, using items taken out of a garden shed. With a roof opening, cat flinging finale.
A significant piece of work,that can dominate a street, with elements of the amateur tinkerer, steam engine enthusiasts, the Mousetrap game, the Englishman's obsession with a tea break.
This show has a gently funny build, classic visual clowning, a subtle narrative and slowly developing tension, with an impressive climax involving the oversized chain reaction machine and a big finish that brings whoops of applause from any audience.
