‘Ar­rival’ ar­rives

West Lothian Courier - - District News -

A show in­spired by an award-win­ning graphic novel is set to be staged in West Loth­ian.

‘The Ar­rival’is a funny, wildly imag­i­na­tive and wel­com­ing show by Shaun Tan.

It fol­lows a man as he jour­neys to start life in a be­wil­der­ing new city. It’s a land of strange cus­toms, pe­cu­liar an­i­mals and weird veg­eta­bles.

He doesn’t speak the lan­guage and he can’t read the maps or signs.

But he is helped along the way by sym­pa­thetic strangers.

Pro­duced by So­lar Bear, a pi­o­neer­ing the­atre com­pany cel­e­brat­ing the creative pos­si­bil­i­ties of in­clu­sion, the pro­duc­tion has been cre­ated to be ac­ces­si­ble for both deaf and hear­ing au­di­ences and those with English as an ad­di­tional lan­guage.

Told in in its own unique way through a mix of vis­ual and phys­i­cal the­atre, the story is aimed at both young peo­ple (11+) .

The play will take place on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 26, at 7.30pm at How­den Park Cen­tre.

Tick­ets priced £10, £8 for con­ces­sions or £6 for West Loth­ian schools. The show is suit­able for au­di­ences aged 11+.

To book tick­ets call the box of­fice on 01506 340700.
