Lion Salt Works hosts ‘All Roads Leads to Rome’ – A quick-witted, fast-paced one-man show with great reviews
The Lion Salt Works Museum, based in Marston, near Northwich is to host its first Cheshire Rural Touring Arts one-man show – ‘All Roads Lead to Rome’ on Sunday 27 September at 7.30pm (£8 adults; £6 for under 16s). The show will be held in one of the historic Stove Houses at the Museum that has been rebuilt and especially adapted to host plays and conferences. Tickets can be purchased at www.ticketsource.co.uk/cheshireruraltouringarts or call the Lion Salt Works on 01606 275040
This quick-witted, fast-paced one-man show tells the story of how Chris Dobrowolski lovingly repaired his father’s Triumph Herald Estate car and embarked on a road journey to Turin to where this quintessentially British car was designed. Chris reports back on this journey as part investigation into the Italian campaign of WWII and part muse on society’s growing materialistic culture.
With nothing more than a pointy stick, some kinetic sculpture and his sharp wit, Chris explores family history and the surprising connections between communism, consumerism and classic car mechanics. This thought-provoking, charismatic show is story-telling at its best and will appeal to a broad audience. It is part of the Cheshire Rural Touring Arts, 2015 Autumn season.
The Scotsman reports: “He takes us from the personal to the political, across a great swathe of 20th Century history, all without leaving the driving seat of the Triumph Herald.”
The Lion Salt Works Museum opened this June after a £10m four-year restoration and renovation thanks to a £5m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and funding from Cheshire West and Chester Council. The Museum has proved very popular with visitors, who enjoy its fun, interactive exhibitions, play area and café. Already the winner of two restoration awards, the Museum is set to become one of the finest industrial history museums in the country.
As a special offer, ticket holders for this performance can have a 25% discount off the entry price to the Lion Salt Works Museum after 3pm on Sunday 27 September. The performance is suitable for children aged 14 years or over.
