On Sunday, October 8th, Moon Aerandir broke new ground in ACT with his innovative work, ‘The Pearl and the Olive Tree..’ This form of storytelling theatre involves a narrator sharing a story in character as the actors enact parts of it on the stage. Padstow Jack’s early life came to life as the dramatic events of his quest to win the woman he loved unfolded by means of Pipit Peacedream’s effective interpretation of Moon’s tale. The cast were: Padstow Jack as himself; Pipit Peacedream as Rosie, his childhood friend; Maat as his wife, and Bardy and Layne as ships crew. A rousing Shanty party followed this story theatre presentation with captivating tunes to keep the audience, many of whom were dressed as pirates, entertained and dancing many a merry jig. This event was a jointly sponsored by ACT and the Avilion Bards.
