Paint The Town Festival: Season Four 14-18 March 2018

Welcome to the fouth season of Paint The Town festival, brought to Medway by Lyrici Arts and Battersea Arts Centre. 

We're back for SPRING and focused on spreading a little bit of kindness, celebrating great local and national theatre, and getting all of Medway involved!

Highlights include:

Ugly Chief- a comedy based on true events performed by a real-life father and daughter. It explores the taboos around death and its practicalities, and the fractious relationship with a parent whose opinions you don’t always agree with.

Festival of Festival - A Showcase like no other from the talented Dance Alley, looking at Medway's history of festivals and community events. 

Sponge - Roll, squeeze and pop yourself through a new, squishy kind of family show for 0-4 yr olds with a funky 1970s soundtrack including disco favourites The Hustle and Car Wash!

Shakespeares Royal Company - As part of National Shakespeare week, the larger-than-life Bindlestick Theatre Company are back with a fun theatre workshop on the real Game of Thrones!

Beached - The most perfect little puppetry show you ever did see! Take 10 minutes out of your day and immerse yourself in this beautiful show by local company StrangeFace!

Loads more still to announce, so keep your eyes peeled!

My Beautiful Black Dog

BY BRIGITTE APHRODITE

"Black dog is what Winston Churchill used to call his depression... I have a beautiful black dog and I call her Creshendorius." Brigitte Aphrodite

Gig meets theatre meets tidal wave of glitter. 

Billed as part of Paint The Town festival, this is a poetically wild musical exploring the difficult and beauteous complexity of our fragile minds. Depression is at its heart, but it’s not depressing – it’s joyous, funny and hopeful (I hope…) I believe in hope.
