Welcome the Flintlock Theatre - an original theatre company in Oxford
Following the sell-out run of our debut production -The Government Inspector - at the Jericho Tavern, Flintlock Theatre will take to the road for an autumn tour of the South-East. Dates announced shortly, watch this space...
Anton Antonovich, a mayor in small-town Russia, is in the midst of a crisis. A government official is on his way to inspect his district and, in Anton’s own words, “this is a disaster!” The streets haven’t been swept for months, there are chickens in the courthouse and Anton himself has been somewhat liberal with the mayoral accounts. The inspector is only too willing to overlook these misdemeanours in exchange for the odd generous bribe. But is he quite who he says he is or will Anton and his band of buffoons finally get what’s coming to them?
This high-energy production features four actors swapping characters at break-neck speed. Suitable for ages 10 to 110, Flintlock employs its trademark dance and extraordinary physical storytelling to create an incandescent 100-minute experience punctuated by a fast and furious Klezmer soundtrack and scintillating live music interval entertainment.
A captivating night out, the show provides guaranteed fun for all the family.
