“Pretty Penny”: Strasbourg in May, Luxembourg in June

Ian Bennett and Grégoire Devictor in “Pretty Penny”We are pleased to announce that Tagora’s FEATS entry for this year, The Virtue of Pretty Penny, or, A Vile Murder Foil’d, by Simon Palmer, will have a preview showing in Strasbourg shortly before we take it to the Luxembourg festival.

We shall be performing it in the cabaret atmosphere of the Camionneur on 15 and 16 May. Performances start at 21.30, but please come earlier and sample the Camionneur’s excellent menu. Booking will be possible through the Camionneur in due course.

The FEATS festival takes place in Mamer, near Luxembourg city, from 6 to 9 June. Tagora is on the first evening, and over the four days festival-goers will be able to see plays from well-established authors like Woody Allen and David Tristram, as well from newcomers, including our very own Simon Palmer.
