Angus Arts is back on the road bringing live theatre to rural venues in our area.

This time promises a tasty treat of comedy and live baking with ‘The Daily Bread’ by Badapple Theatre Company tomorrow (Saturday) at The Retreat, Glenesk, at 7.30 p.m.

Virginia Aspinwall, co-creative director of Angus Arts explained the premise: “We were intrigued by the synopsis of The Daily Bread, which stars the irrepressible Colin Scott-Moncrieff, a Glaswegian actor, raconteur and professional clown, but when we discovered that it included live baking we knew that we had to host this show!

“Apparently Colin previously worked with a French baker in New York, and has run his own cake business in Scotland. When his baking talents were spotted by Badapple’s writer-director Kate Bramley whilst touring a previous show, she saw the opportunity to write a play that would combine all his skills.

“The Daily Bread is the result, and it’s described as a night of Machiavellian subterfuge, comedy, multiple role playing, clowning and, of course, live baking – he genuinely bakes a loaf of bread on stage during the show.”

The Daily Bread has an age guide of 8+ and starts at 7.30 p.m. tomorrow (Saturday) running for 90 minutes including an interval.

To complement the show The Retreat is offering a special pre-theatre meal from 5.30 p.m, with one course for £7 and two courses £10. Pre-booking is essential, call The Retreat on 01356 648070.

Tickets are £9 adult, £8 OAP, £6 child and £28 family of 4 from Angus Arts on 01561 298173 / 01356 648669 / 01356 670304.
