With free flowing alcohol and a charged atmosphere, six characters loosen their tongues to reveal a tangled web of half-truths, lies and deceit that has led them to this point, the funeral of a local businessman. This cabaret style dark comedy draws the audience into its heart, sharing its deepest, darkest secrets. The audience is part of intimate, emotional moments as the story uncovers intriguing links between the characters and the consequences of the tales they tell. Comprising moments of intense emotion, humour, horror and surprising twists, Loose Tongues is a darkly compelling piece of theatre and has enjoyed success at venues in Barnstaple, Salisbury and Bristol in 2011.
‘Bringing individual elements that shadow real life, this script combines entertaining dialogue, full of wit, bursting with humour and yet touching on tragedy that is superbly executed’ (Fringe Secrets North Devon Theatrefest 2011)
