Centre for the performing and visual arts in Anglesey, North Wales
Drama at the Ucheldre Centre includes plays performed by touring companies, workshops, one-person shows, and local community drama. These most often take place in the main hall, but there is also an outdoor amphitheatre beside the Centre.
In Pursuit of Maud is the tale of Igor and Maud. Igor is a simple soul. He lives in a castle with his mistress ‘Mad’ Scientist Maud, and together they do mad scientist things like generating electricity by rubbing two cats together or creating an octopus with the head of a vole. You know…normal stuff.
But one day the pair attempt a brain swapping procedure between Maud and an albatross (she wanted to experience flying) and it goes horribly, horribly wrong. Maud’s body escapes and heads for the hills and Igor is left alone with his beloved employer’s brain floating helplessly in a jar….
In Pursuit of Maud will be a visually beautiful cabaret style show featuring a witty and darkly hilarious musical solo performance from Igor, played by Rowan Talbot. Igor will delight the audience with songs, jokes, slapstick and story. Played out in front of a magical filmed backdrop, created by Bafta award winner Chris Crow (The Lighthouse), audiences will follow Maud on screen as she treks across some of Wales most iconic landscapes.
