Narrowboat theatre brings show to Henley
Published 14/07/14



MIKRON Theatre, the Thespians who tour the country on a narrowboat, are back in Henley next Saturday with a new play.

The touring group will dock at the Eyot Centre on Wargrave Road with their outdoor production, Till the Cows Come Home, sponsored by the Henley Allotments Association.

The plot follows Harvey Granelli, who is fed up with working for Thistledown Council. He followed his miserable mother into local government, but has more in common with his Italian father ice-cream maker and playboy, Romeo. Inspired by a dream, Harvey finally finds the courage to follow his heart and whips up an ice-cream from his father’s recipe book. But times have changed, the way our food is produced has changed and it just doesn’t taste the same.

Harvey faces a choice: he can make an inferior product or source the very best ingredients to make the finest ice-cream in the world. His quest takes him from Thistledown to Tuscany, from Bridlington to Brazil.

Till the Cows Come Home explores modern food production alongside the growth of the slow food movement.


Director Olwen May said: “The company has such a rich history of creating theatre in non-traditional theatre spaces. It’s everything I feel theatre should be — accessible, adventurous and with a passion to ask questions.

“Till the Cows Come Home has all the invention of a Hollywood blockbuster with some real questions about what we do to the food we eat. It’s also fun and chock-full of music and humour.”

The show is on Saturday, July 19 at 7pm. There is no need to book a ticket, as a collection is made at the end. It’s an outdoor show so bring blankets and jumpers. Visit www.mikron.org.uk
