JEUX D’ESPRIT is back with another enlightening event in aid of the Chiltern Centre for Disabled Children.
According to Google Jeux d’Esprit is ‘a work of light-hearted playfulness’ which is exactly what this little production company achieves in its latest sound and light presentation, SOMETHING WICKED.
This year they have four traditional narrative poems for your delight.
Christina Rossetti’s Goblin Market, Thomas Ingoldsby’s The Jackdaw of Rheims, William Cowper’s The Diverting History of John Gilpin and that old favourite Albert and the Lion by Marriot Edgar which is narrated here by Frank Augur who sadly died earlier this year and to whom the whole show is dedicated.
So just sit back in the dark and atmospheric King’s Arms Barn and enjoy the voices of local creatives, Harry Petrie, Sabrina McMann, Jason Fox, Emma Dodd, Brittannie Willis, Jan Corby, Steffen Collings, Frank Augur and the ‘Goblins’ from Trinity School.
With background music from piano-duets played by Angela Pengilley and Darius Halpern, traditional Italian horns and a Dutch street organ and illustrations by old masters like Arthur Rackham and Henley Herald’s very own cartoonist Steve Allender.
JEUX D’ESPRIT is committed to raising funds for The Chiltern Centre for Disabled Children. Chairman Paul Barrett says, “Jeux d’Esprit is a magical entertainment form and we are delighted that they are again fund-raising for us. If you have not experienced their magic before you are in for a treat.”
