Room in the sky - Lyngo Theatre


Room in the sky


Usually actors know what they are doing but when Mr Rossi turns up to do this show with Mr Lynch it always goes wrong. Mr Rossi hasn't learned his lines and doesn't even know how the theatre works. What's worse, he doesn't even speak English! Every time Mr Lynch tries to start the show Mr Rossi always messes things up and they take off in a different direction. As Mr Lynch shows Mr Rossi how the theatre works they play with and distill all the usual theatrical conventions, creating new magic for the audience. They pull and stretch out light and throw it around, catching it between their fingers. Sound effects suddenly become real and explode on the stage. Shadows become solid and solid things become insubstantial and we see the actors pass through them. 

As they struggle with each other to get somewhere they take the audience on a fantastic journey passing by shrinking desert islands, some frantic Shakespeare and a storm at sea. The audience are invited on stage and the show spills out into the auditorium collecting them up for a giant size instant photograph.

This is a show all about the theatre and the wonderful things that an audience and actors can create – together.
