The Spirit of Woodstock (P)
A thought-provoking, poignant, lump-in-throat, dynamic, energetic and semi-immersive open air theatre collage of the worlds and era that surrounded the Mother of Free Festivals.
Inspired by the ethos of the hippie, counterculture, and free festival movements, and still retaining remnants of these traditions, Award winning Something Underground Theatre Company brings you its tribute to Woodstock 6nine.
Award winning Jonathan Brown plays around 75 characters in lightning succession.
Get ready to meet.
