The World's Funniest Bubble Show is an enchanting brew of breathtaking bubbles and bubbly music that will appeal to everyone, no matter what their age. The audience will witness all kinds of extraordinary bubble-related feats, such as spinning flying saucer bubbles, square bubbles filled with fog, universe bubbles with orbiting planets and bubble chains that look like centipedes. This show features lots of audience participation -- some lucky kids will find themselves inside bubbles, while others will get to eat them! It's about as much magical fun as you can have with water, some suds and the imaginative mind and nimble hands of Louis Pearl, The Amazing Bubble Man. Learn More
Set against the backdrop of 1970s working-class Liverpool, Hush is the haunting story of a young girl’s coming of age. With honesty, humor and tenderness, Gillian Summers draws us into her strange yet familiar family, rich in dynamics, disco music and colorful characters. Central to the story is her unique relationship with her little sister Helen, the one person she can depend on amid the chaos.
Gillian Summers developed this piece during The Marsh’s 2006 Performance Initiative and presented an excerpt at The Marsh Festival Of New Voices. She grew up in Liverpool, UK, emigrated to Australia and in 1991 graduated from The Drama Action Centre in Sydney. Before coming to America, Gillian became involved in community and professional theatre in Australia and performed in a variety of outdoor physical theatre projects. Her solo performance piece Testosterone was performed at Belvoir Street’s Theatre Festival of New Work, In Sydney.
