One of the country’s most versatile touring theatre companies, Mikron, whose performances have been delighting audiences for 45 years are bringing their new show to Cheshire.
Raising Agents can be seen at the Winsford Academy Theatre in Grange Lane on Friday, September 18 at 7.30pm.
Mikron plays are always topical and Raising Agents is no exception as it’s in celebration of 100 years of the Women’s Institute.
Bunnington WI is a bit down-at-heel. Dwindling membership means they can barely afford the hall, let alone a decent speaker. So when a PR guru becomes a member, the women are glad of new blood. Initially.
The milk of WI kindness begins to sour when she re-brands them the Bunnington Bunnies. They’re hopping. With stakes higher than a five-tiered cake stand, a battle ensues for the very soul of Bunnington, perhaps the WI itself!
On the threshold of one century into the next, this tale of hobbyists and lobbyists asks how much we should know our past or how much we should let go of it. Above all else, like the WI itself, Raising Agents is a story of friendship.
