JAVEA is awash with rumours of evil apparition’s being seen flitting furtively around the narrow, dark, secluded backstreets of the old town.
One very nervous witness stated she had seen a coven of witches making strange strangled-like uttering’s around a cauldron bubbling over with green slime.
Another described a ghostly vision of what appeared to be an entity dressed in flowing robes and wearing a crown, accompanied by an apparently crazy ranting and raving Duke.
A phantom Demon of questionable sexuality was reported seen merrily dancing with a Court Jester to the accompaniment of jingling bells.
Not exactly a picture of your normal Javiense villagers going about their everyday lives – but something strange was definitely happening.
After investigating the reports in some depth and eliminating the distinct possibility of too many alcoholic slurps fuelling the imagination, the truth was eventually revealed.
Science fantasy Author Sir Terry Pratchett is the man responsible for conjuring up the back street images, aided and abetted by a cast of evil minded actors from the Javea Players Theatre Company, rehearsing their next production; “The Wyrd Sisters.”
Adapted for the stage by Stephen Briggs from Terry Pratchett’s fantasy comic novel, Wyrd Sisters is a caricature of William Shakespeare’s play Macbeth, incorporating various fairy stories, myths and legends together with a meld of humour ranging from Monty Python to Blackadder and sheer pantomime.
Probably one of the most complex productions the Players have undertaken since Toad of Toad hall, Director Christyn Nossell has accepted the challenge to weave all these elements together and make this a must-have-ticket production.
Opening on November 28 the play will run until December 2 at the Union Musical in Gata de Gorgos, commencing at nightly.
Tickets €12 (€2 reduction per ticket available to groups of 20 or more) bookable through their box office on 96 579 4937.
