The Cottesloe Theatre will be putting on a production of Errol John's play, "Moon On A Rainbow Shawl".

Old Mack's noisy yard in Trinidad is a cacophony of calypso beats and hymn tunes, where neighbours drink, fight and pass judgment, all whilst looking out for each other and trying to build a better life. But Ephraim is determined, and nothing is going to stop him escaping his dead-end job for a nw life in England -- not even the beautiful Rosa.

Memphis“Memphis” — with Beverley Knight – 9th October 2014 to 28th March 2015
Set in the underground nightclubs of 1950s Memphis, when the new sounds of rock ‘n’ roll, blues and gospel are first emerging into the mainstream, a young man aims to raise a beautiful club singer out of the clubs and onto the airwaves of America. The gripping story will leave you exhilarated by its explosive blend of electrifying music, emotion and roof-raising energy.

Join Jack and his mad mother’s pack of magic beans, as he sows them in the earth and watches them rise up higher and higher into the sky. But what will he find hiding in the clouds? Can an old cow, a bag of beans and a visit from a mysterious fairy really save the day?
