The awesome beauty of a theatre when it is used properly occurs in its ability to whisk you away to anywhere it wants to, leaving you little choice but to go along with the journey to see what might happen.

Long Distance Champion

If I was to say the word Porsche to you what would you envisage? A 911 probably springs to mind first and probably a Boxster too. But think a little harder what else does that name mean to you? Do you see images of Le Mans winning 956’ and 962’s or maybe 959’s blasting across the desert on the way to Dakar? What about a little 356 on the Grossglockner pass? Or perhaps your head is filled with pictures of Steve McQueen in white overalls, or James Dean maybe, and his 550 spider.
