First Three Drops
A Taking Flight/Park & Dare Theatre Co-production
Ceridwen the witch has a problem. Whilst her daughter is beautiful and bright, her son Morfran is something of a lost cause. There is only one thing for it: powerful magic is needed. When Ceridwen leaves Gwion, Morfran’s best friend, in charge of stirring her VIP (very important potion) for a year and a day, she can never imagine the mayhem that will ensue.
With shape-shifting, sorcery and silliness galore, First Three Drops is a funny and magical story of adventure, in English, British Sign Language and Sign Supported English. The show will also feature live captions and integrated audio description. Based on the legend of Taliesin by Elis Gruffydd.
Following a successful practice run with the Park & Dare in August, this brand-new play performed live over Zoom in a virtual tour this autumn. Our actors will be bringing the show to life directly from their homes to yours. First Three Drops has a real party atmosphere and you can be part of the action throughout, by dressing up, making your best sound effects and generally joining in with all the fun.
Recommended for little ones aged 2 – 9 and their grown-ups. Directed and written especially for Zoom by Elise Davison.
Zoom is an easy-to-use, online video calling app that is free to download on computers, tablets and phones. We recommend that you download Zoom in advance of the performance to familiarise yourself with it and avoid any delays on the day – why not have a practice run with friends or family if you haven’t used it before?
