The Boxford Masques 2021 - BELLEROPHON

The Boxford Mosaic Alive!
By Geraldine McCaughrean

Wed 28 Jul 2021 - Sun 01 Aug 2021

The Boxford Masques 2021. A community show for West Berkshire.

Please note, this event takes place at Boxford Recreation Ground, RG20 8DD. All performances will take place under cover in a marquee.

Ever wondered what happens if you dig up a Roman mosaic and it comes to magic life? Or when a flying horse bursts from the ground and mythic robots walk the Boxford fields? How about when the brave but vain hero Bellerophon quests to find the Chimera - but takes an entire theatre audience, a fusty Edwardian couple, fifteen household Gods, a Greek princess, some hungry Furies and the Delphic Oracle with him - all by accident?

This action packed new Boxford Masque will whisk you on a crazy, comic, music, dance and imagination packed journey into the land of mosaics, myths and monsters, - where ancient stories become as real as the stage the company dances on, and our modern world melds with the marvellous, magical past.

Evening performances at 7.30pm
Saturday matinee performance at 2.30pm
