Idle Discourse worked with several community groups and local professional actors in Portsmouth to stage Everlasting Cake, in collaboration with MAST Mayflower Studios, Portsmouth Guildhall Trust, and Groundlings Theatre. The play was presented as part of MAST's 'Festival of Loveliness'.
Everlasting Cake is the story of octogenarian Elsie, her younger self, and the discovery of a mysterious cake recipe...
Featuring live music, video, dancing, puppetry, and a raucous bunch of octogenarians, Everlasting Cake is a hilarious and thought-provoking farce set in a care home in the late 1990s. The piece is perfect for community groups and venues looking to find engaging work for older actors.
'A perfect combination of commercial and community theatre'
