Guilty pleasure at St Albans’ Trestle theatre

THE story of a man’s guilt and recrimination in the small hours before a dream wedding is one of three upcoming shows from Trestle during the St Albans Festival.

The Pretender, which is being performed at 7.30pm next Friday, June 24, fuses video projection, physical theatre and dark animation in a cutting edge visual performance which places narrative, emotion and wit at its core.

It is being performed by El Toro Theatre Company which is taking it on to the Edinburgh Festival this summer.

Tickets for the performance are �5, available from the box office on 01727 850950.

n Trestle will be running two marquees at the free Festival for All in Verulamium Park from 1pm this Saturday as well as offering free drop-in story-telling in its Story Tent and physical theatre workshops during the day.

As this is the 30th year of Trestle, an exhibition celebrating performances by the theatre group will be shown.

In addition, next Sunday, June 26, Trestle is playing host again to Larks in the Parks at its base in Russet Drive where there will be free events and workshops for families.
