Inner State has had a close relationship with water and the sea for most of its twenty years in operation, despite Andy being a rotten swimmer. Consequently many of their walkabout characters & shows have links to the seaside or maritime history.
Check out the links to the Truncated Theatre shows for the historical ones and, of course, the famous dockyard of Boats with Legs.
PUNCH & JUDY
Punch and Judy have escaped from the booth and, like all the other day trippers are having a day out at the seaside. Mr Crocodile is happy to smile at everyone from Judy’s arms, but Mr Punch, as usual, is not the best person to be looking after the baby.
SUNSHINE VARIETY SHOW
A ‘retro’ picnic of songs and silliness, sandwiched together for a day out on the prom, the beach … or anywhere you can put up a deckchair.
Presented by our stripey pair or in some other nautical outfit to suit the occasion. Sophisticated stupidity including The Great Deckchair Challenge!
These two retired inept pirates, have been washed up with nowhere to hide. Just time for them to tell you a bit about the real nasty pirates, and enjoy a last drink and a song before they have to make a quick getaway. Assisted by Jack Scratch’em the ship’s cat and, of course, the audience.
Long John Silver, a reluctant Jim Hawkins, and a bad tempered parrot attempt to get through Robert Louis Stevenson’s famous story in record breaking time. The performance is fraught with arguments, and if the audience doesn’t help no-one will ever get off the island with the treasure.
