“Settlers wanted for alternative living community in South America, all welcome to apply, unless you're a prick.” The world premiere production of acclaimed new Welsh theatre company Motherlode in their London debut following a Welsh tour, Exodus is set in South Wales. On the eve of the last factory in town closing, four neighbours hatch a plan that is literally pie in the sky... Mary, Ray, Mike and Timmy gather in an allotment, decide to build a plane, and take off down the high street. Past the butchers, past the curry house and above the Chapel in search of a life free from politics and the grind. Blisteringly funny, this heart-warming new drama is accompanied by a live original score by David Grubb with choreography from Emma Vickery culminating in a new adventure that makes anything seem possible. Motherlode's last production, The Good Earth, created and directed by Rachael Boulton, told the story of a Valleys community torn apart by their council and big business and, following a successful tour of Wales, it transferred to the Flea Theatre in New York City for an acclaimed run. Exodus will tour to twelve venues across Wales this October from Milford Haven in the west to Newport in the east and Mold in the North. Tickets are on sale now for performances at The Coliseum Aberdare (5 and 6 October), Theatr Clwyd (9 and 10 October), Llandinam Village Hall (11 October), Redhouse Cymru Merthyr Tydfil (12 October), Taliesin Swansea (13 October), Chapter Cardiff (17–20 October), Riverfront Newport (23 October), Gwynfe Village Hall (24 October), Torch Theatre Milford Haven (25 October), Blackwood Miners' Institute (26 October), Theatr Brycheiniog Brecon (27 October) and Cwmavon Village Hall (30 October) prior to the Finborough Theatre run.

Warriors of Ethandun

Everything hinges on Dan being able to rescue Ursula first from the Vikings, then from herself. This is an utterly page-turning, clever, and action-packed finale to the Warriors trilogy.

Dan and Ursula return to the present day after months in King Arthur's England. They sought a way back home for so long, but now find themselves unable to cope with modern life. Ursula's incredible strength and Dan's experience on the battlefield make it impossible to fit in with friends. So when they have an opportunity to go back in time, neither can resist. They emerge in 878 AD, the age of King Alfred the Great. Vikings are rampaging through Britain and the King, defeated and weak, has retreated to the marshes. Dan finds him here, and he and Alfred's men begin plotting a counter-attack. But Dan cannot fight without Ursula. Consumed by her time-slip ability to wield magic, she has been captured by the Vikings who now revere her as a goddess. Everything hinges on Dan being able to rescue Ursula first from the Vikings, then from herself. This is an utterly page-turning, clever, and action-packed finale to the Warriors trilogy.
