Something we had been looking forward to for a while was our visit to Burjesta Theatre. The Poisoners Progress is a story of “A bittersweet romance of all things sugary…“ to be played out at the Casa Bar where Burjesta are based. Now the Casa Bar itself has a history all of its own that makes it well worth a visit, and is adorned with some stunning photography.
Once settled into the cosy theatre, the play unfolded into a very informative and funny journey through time, showing the conception of our love affair with sugar. Played out as an alternative Christmas pantomime and advent calendar, each scene was given a ” discreetly” hidden number for the audience to try and spot.
The cast opened each window of information and delivered the horror story that is sugar in an accomplished manner. A great performance by the cast and full of laughs along the way. The play was written and directed by Mikyla Durkan, who has undertaken the challenge of a sugar free diet and recently completed 120 days .
You can read the progress of Mikyla here: The Poisoners Progress
Burjesta also have a nice looking programme of events coming up next year which can be found at their website Burjesta-theatre
The Poisoners Progress is a J.J.Bond Production.
With special thanks to the cast:
