Rough House deserves a full house

Posted on Thu, May 1, 2008 at 12:21 PM

The first piece of live theatre that my youngest son ever saw was staged a number of years ago at the On the Waterfront Theatre Festival (now known as SuperNova). I remember thinking how lucky we are here in HRM to have the opportunity to expose our kids to the theatre-going experience. Rough House, which opened today at SuperNova, is a perfect way to get young children enthused about entertainment that doesn’t emanate from an electronic box. In this one-man show, Andy Massingham uses a mix of slapstick and dance to take the audience through a day in the life of a man who is beset on all sides by a hostile world. The funniest bits involved a feisty chair and a fickle patch of light. It is the kind of show that encourages children (and adults) to laugh out loud.

Rough House runs Saturday May 3 and Sunday May at 2pm at Alderney Landing Theatre
