Slings & Arrows

Slings & Arrows

SLINGS AND ARROWS is based in the fictional town of New Burbage where legendary theatrical madman Geoffrey Tennant returns to the New Burbage Theatre Festival – the site of his greatest triumph and most humiliating failure, to assume the Artistic Directorship after the sudden death of his mentor, Oliver Welles.

Now firmly installed as Artistic Director of the New Burbage Festival, Geoffrey Tennant inherits the problems of late Oliver Welles, plus a few of his own making. Labouring under the now glorified shadow of his predecessor, Geoffrey is forced to stage Macbeth, the cursed play, which Oliver had obsessively researched for years. Working from Oliver's notes, Geoffrey chafes at the bit, particularly with the casting of seasoned theatre actor, Henry Breedlove, as Macbeth being a foregone conclusion. Geoffrey rebels, and Oliver reappears. . .
