    A table sits alone surrounded by empty chairs. The table is dressed for the occasion, lacy white tablecloths, delicate teacups, proud teapots and lickering candlelight. But the tablecloths are stained, cold dregs of tea loat in the teacups and the lowers are withered and dried. It looks like the party has inished but its only just beginning...

    Experience a taste of the surreal in a performance that draws upon an eclectic and bizarre mix of sourced material: slices of Alice in Wonderland, a splash of A Midsummer Nights Dream, a lump or two of Dalis surrealism, a pinch of Peter Pan - all brewed together with a teaspoonful or two of Monty Pythons Circus.

    Be immersed in a dreamland and a secret tea party, play a game with unexpected rules or even, as it may sometimes seem, no rules at all!

    The audience is invited to join the bizarre and surrealistic tea party and sit around a table set out with a traditional white tablecloth and a cornucopia of crockery and table vessels in all kinds of styles, forms and shapes, with half burned out candles, tired fllowers and attractive but worn and chipped tea pots and table ware.

    Volunteers are taken from the crowd and seated around the table, becoming live game pieces, the table is the game board, and the game stations are plates and cups, which contain different messages and tasks. The hidden messages discovered by the players trigger various happenings and the entertaining elements of the performance. These could be: an explosion of a confetti, the appearance of a mysterious creature behind a curtain, a live music performance - or a song, a dance or someone stepping on the table and bursting into a raucous folk song in an obscure language.

    There will also be challenging tasks: like - for example - testing specialities from the witty Crones pantry, following an obscure tiny, scribbled treasure map to uncover a buried pearl, or bubble ight.

    Tasks could be simple colouring (with a twist), standing up and singing a song (remember when adults used to made us do it?), inishing a gigantic plate of vegetables before you can get up from the table or building a pillow fort. Perhaps a competition who last the longest on a Game Boy?

    So, if you sit in front of the tea cup inscribed drink me - do it! risk it! And at the bottom of the cup perhaps, you may fiind a secret message which may in turn trigger a melee of incidents.... or you may f ind yourself behaving sillier and more childish than you thought you could.

    As different tasks are completed the participants of the game move around the table visiting the game stations obtaining points as they go. If the participants refuse a task or fail to ful il it and lose all their points they forfeit the game thus freeing up their place for someone else to join in. The aim of the Teatime Wonder Game is to eradicate all the participants until one remains, they will win the Secret Treasure.

    The performance aims to detach the audience and participants from the rush of their everyday lives, leave worries about the future and regrets of the past behind and be in the here and now and experience their surroundings with all their senses. Just like we all used to do when we were kids. We want to help people re-connect to their inner child, unconstrain themselves. The participants are offered costumes, encouraged to be who they want to be at that very moment, just to rediscover something they forgot a long time ago... and most of all have lots silly fun!

    Art & Expression theme.

    Teatime Wonder Game is an interactive performance game involving singing, dancing and story telling happening around table dressed with tablecloths, teacups and teapots. Volunteers are taken from the crowd and seated around the table, becoming live game pieces, the table is the game board, and the game stations are plates and cups, which contain different tasks. The hidden messages discovered by the players trigger various happenings. Tasks could be simple colouring (with a twist), standing up and singing a song (remember when adults made us do it?), finishing a gigantic plate of vegetables before you can get up from the table or building a pillow fort. Perhaps a competition who last the longest on a Game Boy? So, if you find yourself in front of the tea cup inscribed drink me - do it! Be childish, curious and loud. Well, unless there is a story time then please everyone be quiet!
