The Joker & The White Feather

Owen Lewis’ Portable Theatre Company will be touring two of Lewis’ new plays, The Joker and The White Feather.  Starting the six-date tour at The Arena Theatre in February they will go on to play at the more rural areas of Shropshire including Bishops Castle, Ludlow and Hales.

Owen explained, “It has always been our goal to get to a level where we can tour in a range of venues of very differing sizes”

Producer David Wright Explains “As always with this popular format of two one-act plays, we are demonstrating the diversity of Owen’s writing; The White Feather is a poignant tale of the heroism of the ordinary man in World War 1 while The Joker, which includes original songs some of which are sung live by the actors, looks at the trials and tribulations of a stand-up comedian.”

The full tour dates are as follows:-
7th February, 2014 The Arena Theatre, Wulfruna St, Wolverhampton, WV1 1SE
15th February, 2014 Appletree Theatre, 15 Lower Galdeford, Ludlow, Shropshire, SY8 1RU
