Festive Roads replica Mark 1 tank and its bespoke outdoor theatre show "Best Company" will be touring during from June to September 2015.
The Best Company is a comic theatre show with an amusing take on a very real struggle as four friends take a WW1 tank into battle.
The Best Company are on their way to the Western Front but the external conflict is not the only thing occupying the crew’s thoughts. As we see, life inside the Mark 1 tank is busy, noisy and smelly. Tension among the company escalates and a hilarious and bizarre internal conflict occurs. As the tank spins, the characters actions become more and more surreal… war is declared and the engine judders to a holt!
Will the Best Company get the Tank started again? Will they make it to the front line? Come and find out… The show is an outdoor theatre piece, no longer than 40 minutes and suitable for families and for all ages of audiences.
