“Contemporary theatre at its best” Wilts Gazette

Brand new comedy from Big State Theatre, the team behind 2004’s hit show The Fire Starter.

A woman, a young pet-sitter, is discovered floating on a buoy in the middle of the ocean. As she slowly reveals her version of events that took place within an inner city tower block, what begins as a fairly straightforward task of moving an old lady’s pets escalates to biblical proportions…….

Fetch! is a fast-paced, physical comedy that is both hilarious and deeply absurd. Like Mel Brooks crossed with Delicatessen and Brazil, Fetch! is a very funny urban fantasy where the audience is sucked into a gloriously skewed world. Highly atmospheric and highly visual, Fetch! also uses puppets, 16mm film and video projections that bring to life a parade of bizarre characters including a Russian spy with a Tom Waits obsession, people who live in cupboards and a concierge straight out of The Archers…….

Surreal, fast fire comedy of the best kind that will appeal to ages 14 years up.

“Make sure you catch Big State – they are refreshingly clever with their comedy” Bath Chronicle

Tickets: £5.00 (£3.50 concessions) available from the Borough Theatre Box Office 01873 850805 or from the Melville on the night.
