The Stolen Rubber Band

Written by Peter Mortimer, directed by Neil Armstrong.

In Peter Mortimer’s latest piece of theatrical absurdity we find the character Terse driven to desperation by economic austerity. The solution is to embark on an unpredictable odyssey in an attempt to steal a rubber band - the answer to every problem. En route Terse must face and overcome such problems as the Wobbly Man With Dog, the Bald Balladeer, and the awesome Gate of Gump, through which no-one has ever passed. Terse must also learn to converse in the language of Gargle. Meantime back home, Terse’s faithful companion Foam confronts another formidable challenge - to count aloud from 1 to 10,000.
Cloud Nine’s latest indefinable piece is full of trickery, practical jokes, sleights of hand, physical theatre, dazzling language and a watering can. There is also an obsession with eating.
The first half of each evening’s performance brings a live set from one of North Tyneside’s many talented singer/songwriters.
