WHO: The Brighton Mummers are a group of enthusiastic and excitable performers who have been producing plays in Brighton for five years. We write our own scripts and generally perform in non-standard theatre spaces: pubs, streets, people’s houses etc. We are the lords of misrule in disguise – we delight and ruffle the feathers of our audiences with humour and mystery!
WHAT: Mumming is an ancient form of British ritual performance, with original scripts recorded from all over the country. For more info start here: www.mastermummers.org
MORE ON OUR NEXT PLAY:
The Sussex Apple Play has been written to celebrate the annual apple harvest in Stanmer Park orchard. As with most mummers scripts, our play is farcical nonsense; an expression of joy to herald the turning season. Although sometimes dark in tone, it is a play that both adults and children will enjoy.
