Open: / / - Close: Open Run STANDARD TOYKRAFT'S CARDBOARD ROBOT BATTLE, EPISODE V, DISNEY BUYS THE FRANCHISE
A UNIQUE PUPPETRY EVENT
9 Contestants will build their own robot out of cardboard and packing tape. These are the only materials allowed!! They should paint and decorate their robots, but more importantly they create cardboard killing machines.

Robots should be of "vehicle" design, similar to the Mars Rover or other type machines. Contestants are not allowed to create humanoid robot costumes. No Robocops here! This will give an unfair advantage, and be more akin to the human sport known as "boxing".

The Cardbot Battle would not be complete without our celeb host, Ring Fembots, Inter-match shows, drink specials and so much more!


How does this crazy thing work?
2 Robots will enter the ring based on a "heavy weight- light weight" system. The winners will then proceed to a Battle Royal Round where all the champions will battle one another.

Open: / / - Close: Open Run The Captives
The plot of The Captives is a very funny comedy, based on confusion of identity, set among war in the ancient world, and dealing with slavery and loyalty. 

Hegio's son, Philopolemus, has been captured in war by the Elians. Similarly, Philocrates, an Elian, has been captured by The Aetolians. Hegio, himself an Aetolian, buys Philocrates and his slave Tyndarus in an auction. His plan is to trade the two for his son, his only loss being the money he has spent to purchase them. Tyndarus and Philocrates devise a scheme where they will switch roles and names, so that the latter might arrive home sooner and better facilitate the exchange of Hegio's son. Hegio, unknowingly, agrees to send the disguised Philocrates to Elis. What Tyndarus does not count on is Aristophontes, another Elian prisoner and friend of Philocrates who he is familiar with.

Open: 08/17/16- Close: 09/03/16 THE GOOD EARTH
Inspired by true events, The Good Earth is the explosive new story of a Welsh village fighting to save their homes and mountain unravelled through physical theatre akin to the Welsh-trained Frantic Assembly, new writing and Welsh folk song, bringing to life a valley torn apart by their council, big business and eventually themselves.

 

Facing pressure from the local council to move when a new development is proposed, a small group of ardent Welsh villagers decide to fight back. This explosive new play provides cultural context to the anti-establishment sentiment of rural Wales that has partly led to the recent "Brexit" vote.

The piece was developed in residency in the Rhondda Valley, Wales, working with one of the few still standing ex-mining theatres of the 1800’s to tell the story of a family, who
