A new musical called 'Bubble' will be opening in Easton, Bristol on Friday 18th April. Written by local talent, Winston Edwards, Emma and Varujan Smallwood, this musical is being produced to support a local Food Bank. In fact, you will only gain entry by bringing non-perishable food stuff which will be used to help people struggling in food poverty.
'Bubble' is the story of Jake and Holly who meet by chance at the docks. Love blows them out of the water but, when reality kicks in and bursts their bubble, Jake makes a run for it. He escapes to the place he feels safe - the ocean waves - leaving Hollie heartbroken, confused and pregnant. A terrible disaster leaves Jake alive but with no chance of escape. When all hope has gone, can love survive?
This tale was inspired by the real-life experience of Okene Harrison. Last year, Harrison, a Nigerian tug-boat crew member, spent nearly 3 days trapped at the bottom of the sea in an air-pocket before shocked salvage workers discovered him alive and rescued him.
'We wanted a story that resonated with new life rising out of the ashes', says Varujan Smallwood, one of Bubble's producers, 'and Harrison's experience inspired us to write this particular show. It connects with traditional Easter themes of impossible hope and redemption but from an unusual angle. It gets you thinking about what's important in life through a moving love story'.
Bubble will be showing for one night only (18th April) at the House of Praise Church, Tudor Road, Easton, 6pm.
