A unique brand of theatre is coming to Berkhamsted and Tring... via narrowboat.

Theatre company Mikron, which has a rich history of creating theatre in non-traditional paces, tour throughout England by narrowboat, travelling along canals and rivers, and mooring up at canal-side venues like pubs, village halls, marinas and dry docks.

The cast of four unpack set, props, costumes, musical instruments and lights, and as the audience gather, conjure up a variety of characters, stories and songs, transporting the audience all around the globe.

And now it is coming to Tring on June 30 and Berkhamsted on July 3 with its show Till The Cows Come Home.

A spokesman for Mikron said: “It’s everything I feel theatre should be – accessible, adventurous and with a passion to ask questions of the world we live in.

“Till The Cows Come Home has all the adventure and invention of a Hollywood block-buster with some real questions about what we do to the food we eat. It’s also fun and chock full of music and humour. What’s not to like?”

Harvey Granelli is fed up of working for Thistledale Council. He followed his miserable mother into local government, but he has more in common with his Italian father – part-time playboy and one-time ice-cream maker, Romeo.

Till the Cows Come Home can be seen on Monday June 30 at 7.30pm at The Anglers Retreat, Startops End, Tring and Thursday July 3 at 7.30pm at The Rising Sun, George Street, Berkhamsted. There is no need to buy a ticket, as a collection will be taken after the show.
