Actor Oliver Lansley, best known on television for his performance as Kenny Everett in BBC4’s The Best Possible Taste last year, is coming to the Unity theatre with an acclaimed new show.
Award-winning Edinburgh Fringe sell-out play The Trench blends live music, puppetry and physical performance. Set in war time, among the darkness of the trench, nothing is what it seems when a strange world is discovered beneath the mud and death.
Inspired by the true story of a miner who became entombed in a tunnel during the First World War, the play is described as “an epic journey of salvation” as the boundaries between reality and fantasy blur.
The show is the work of theatre company Les Enfants Terribles, which for more than 10 years has been dedicated to creating innovative theatre that challenges and transports audiences to weird and wonderful worlds.
Founded by artistic director Lansley, who also wrote The Trench, the company has performed all over the world aswell as extensively touring the UK.
Catch it at the Unity for one performance only on Wednesday, April 10. For tickets and information, visit their website.
