The Feather in the Web is very, very funny. 

It’s the kind of funny where you move from laughing out loud to cringing in recognition and back again. Nick Coyle’s superbly imaginative, playful script gives a great time, and shakes the world a little in the process. Director Declan Greene – with his fabulous cast and creative team – has created a truly exciting production that’s as entertaining as it is surprising.

The Feather in the Web is also featured in Midsumma Festival, and selling fast, so get in early. I’ll be seeing another preview showing tonight with a friend, and can’t wait!
