An outdoor community show commissioned by Broxtowe Borough Council based on the myths, stories and memories that surround a very large and very strangely shaped geographical feature – the Hemlock Stone in Stapleford.
This show had just about the deepest stage you can imagine as the audience sat in the walled garden of Bramcote Hills Park, while the action took place not only within the walled garden but also up at the Hemlock Stone some distance away. Druids processed down the hillside, a waving giant appeared from behind some trees (spotted first, of course, by the younger members of the audience) , hundreds of balloons were released from behind the Stone, a poet went into rapture, Noah’s Ark landed and a meteor collided with the normally peaceful Stapleford Hill.
Funded by the Local Heritage Initiative, Broxtowe Borough Council and Stapleford Town Council. The Louisa Holmes School of Performing Arts and Dance 4 contributed to sections of the show.
