A WORM’S TALE (article first published : 2001-10-22)

Madcaps Creative Education Company has devised an exciting new show for schools entitled A Worm’s Tale the story follows the adventures of J W Earthworm, a fragile underground creature who discovers the secret of invincible power – with disastrous consequences!

The play, which was directed by Gisele Turner, features the combined talents of Wendy Nell and Michael Gritten. Nell was nominated for best actress in this year’s FNB Vita Awards and Gritten scooped the best actor award two years running. Together they have created a high-energy non-stop comedy with an underlying message on the abuse of power. This is physical theatre at it’s liveliest, an action-packed thriller with an unexpected twist to its tail.

The Worm’s Tale is full of zany and hilarious characters including a charming but nerdish boy and his whacky inventive uncle, an unbelieving warthog and a brand new baby giraffe, as well as a couple of irresistible clowns. And, of course, the worm….

The Worm’s Tale has age appropriate adaptations for junior and senior primary phases with lots of audience participation for the younger kids. The season ends on December 7. To book contact Taryn Turner on (031) 465-6171.
