Cobbo (2009)

By Daniel Jamieson

What People Said

"The tale moves charismatically between dream worlds, human environments and watery realms to craft a very modern love story that casts a considerable spell."
THE GUARDIAN ****

"Theatre Alibi create a tale so unusual and surreal that it holds audiences spellbound. Funny, tender and touching. Simply unforgettable…"
THE STAGE

"With its echoes of classical mythology this grown up fairytale charms on many levels. Craig Edwards’s gracefully clumsy puppetry adds magic and Thomas Johnson’s score not only echoes the sounds of the swan but provides a complex shifting emotional background that mirrors the complexity of the emotions onstage"
VENUE MAGAZINE ****

"We found Cobbo spell-binding, intimate, emotive and very funny. Your production is one of a small number that will be fondly remembered for many years"
AUDIENCE MEMBER

"Everyone (from year 10 to the Upper 6th) really enjoyed Cobbo. The energy and commitment in the acting, complemented by the impressionistic music and beautiful lighting design, framed by the sweeping set design, created a magical world that drew us all in. Your education pack and access to the script, together with the DVD, show how Theatre Alibi really understand what Drama students need to take their experience of your shows with them into exam success. ‘You’re simply the best’ theatre company, and we’re already looking forward to seeing your next show!"
HEAD OF DRAMA, ST MARY’S SCHOOL, SHAFTESBURY
