- The War Of The Worlds [Pantaloons]

"And fewer would have believed in the first years of the twenty-first century that H. G. Wells? science fiction classic would be performed live by just four actors with intelligences lesser than average?
The critically-acclaimed Pantaloons invade the stage in this funny yet faithful new adaptation as they use musical instruments, puppetry and, um, enthusiasm to recreate deadly heat-rays, giant fighting-machines, squidgy tentacled Martians and interplanetary warfare on an epic scale.
The chances of success? A million to one?"
"The Pantaloons are a young, vibrant theatre company who bring what we consider to be a vital sense of ?play? back to classical performance. In our theatre, your imagination is just as important as ours."
