Journey to the country's end.

THEATREGO? ERS can embark on a special journey at Stockton's ARC next week.

Theatre company Third Angel will be present Cape Wrath from a stationary minibus outside the venue on Wednesday, and Thursday.

This is a story of family, of fellow travellers, of whiskey and chocolate and of the longest bus journey in Britain. It will be told to an audience of just 14.

Heartfelt, moving, compellingly intimate, Cape Wrath will take audiences on a journey to the edge of the island, and wonders what we think about when we think about our lives.

In September 2011, Third Angel's Alexander Kelly travelled from his home, roughly in middle of England, to Cape Wrath, the most Northwesterly point of the British mainland.

He took public transport the whole way there and back: coach, bus, ferry, minibus, train.

In September 1988, Alex's grandad had undertaken the same journey, also travelling by public transport and hitch-hiking.

He got to Cape Wrath, sat and looked at the sea and thought about his life. Then he went home.

In this presentation Alex will tell the story of retracing his grandfather's footsteps, family histories, family myths and the incredible bus route.

Tickets are PS12, concessions PS10, details on 01642 525199 or at www.arconline.co.uk
