"This show has a big heart."
"It takes the red nose
to the edge"
“I know it's not a piece for children - but the children absolutely loved it!”
"A very political piece."
"Very very funny."
"I didn’t stop smiling for the whole hour of A CULTURAL EXCHANGE. It was so vibrant and fun and joyous."
Jack Rowan, Operations Manager, ADC Theatre
"Just went tonight for the last show! We had such a good time. It was hilarious and total madness. I couldn’t stop laughing. Merci à vous, Biscotte et Margareth."
"-I laughed until I cried - I cried until I laughed!
-A space where absolutely ANYTHING could happen, and it did!"
A cultural exchange
A piece in two acts for two red noses.
Biscotte (French) and Margareth (English) meet each other in the South of France. Although their two countries are both geographically and historically close, Margareth and Biscotte soon come across some personal, political and socio-economical differences. These they explore with emotional intensity, whilst trying to work out if they actually want to spend any time together.
They meet again during a second scenario when Margareth and Biscotte journey together on an old-age cultural spiritual encounter. Through the innocence of the red nose and caring for sheep – they encounter God.
– And some songs.
– And a walk up a mountain.
(Mostly suitable for adults, although children also often enjoy the show)
