The Rude Mechanical Theatre Company makes a welcome return to St Leonards this summer with its unique brand of comedy.

Harlequin Goes to the Moon, a tale of romance, love, whimsy, lust and greed, will be performed in St Leonards Gardens on June 16.

Expect harmonious singing and live music from the talented troupe of performers, sporting their signature white faces. Catalina, the daughter of the great astronomer Il Dottore Pazzo, is madly, desperately, in love with the delicious Federico, the son of a Florentine banker who has reinvented the meaning of ‘mean’. The show starts at 7.30pm (open from 6pm). Tickets are available on the gate or in advance from Plenty Provisions, from 01323 501260, or www.therudemechanicaltheatre.co.uk.
