The two ensembles have devised a play called Feeble Minds, which they will perform in July 2009. Feeble Minds tells the story of a world in chaos, intoxicated with greed and lust. The play explores the topical dilemma of taking risks and is inspired by Shakespeare’s Timon of Athens. The production will include physical theatre and spoken word, and features a multi media back drop. Feeble Minds is a comical, moving piece which explores questions of moral values.
