Synopsis

On July 1, 1924 Field Marshal Douglas Haig comes to St. John’s to dedicate the National War Memorial. Charles Edgecombe, a groom from the Governor’s stables, helps him dress for the occasion. Haig is then obliged to submit to an interview by local journalist and suffragette, Geraldine Drover. Their meeting sparks a fierce debate about the causes of the World War and its consequences, about the horrors of the past and their hopes for the future.

Tangly is a Christmas Pantomime that blends Rapunzel with a pinch of Rumplestiltskin, a tablespoon of Gift of the Magi and a heaping helping of the classic Newfoundland Mummers Play. When spunky Rapunzel Rhubarb is kidnapped by the Old Hag, it’s up to Buttons to save her. With a pocketful of sea urchins, a pet jellyfish and a gang of pals at his side he’ll venture up the harbour and down the shore; from Greens Harbour to Old St. John’s Towne to the depths of the Winter Woods and magical Macaroni Tower to save the day. A play brimming with song and dance, magic spells, audience interaction and zany wit and charm, Tangly will kick off Christmas with a smile on your face and a glow in your cheeks. This is a show for the whole family to enjoy.
