Blades and “Pastoral” at Soho Theatre


A few months ago we received an interesting request to supply artificial grass for a new production at the Soho Theatre in London. When we’re not knee deep in mud and grass we’re quite partial to soaking up some culture so we were only too pleased to help.

The production is Pastoral, a “darkly funny and highly original play” written by Thomas Eccleshare, the winner of the Verity Bargate Award, starring Anna Calder-Marshall and directed by Steve Marmion, Artistic Director of the Soho Theatre.

The play is part of the 2013 Hightide Festival and after its premier there will be opening at the Soho Theatre on 15 May and running until 8 June.

They first noticed it a few weeks ago, creeping round the war memorial and through the crack outside Subway. Just little weeds at first, little sprouts. Herbs and reeds and wild mushrooms. It’s amazing how quickly they’re growing.

Moll thinks she’s going on holiday but something more sinister is afoot. As menacing cats and strutting voles advance, a dangerously fertile countryside just keeps on growing – humanity is on the brink.

We can’t wait to see another creative use of artificial grass for ourselves next month.
