SFS

poster smallSUMMER FILM SCHOOL is a project for young people produced in partnership between FOUR OF SWORDS, EXETER PHOENIX and Exeter-based film production company COLOURBURN.

The film school took twenty-odd 10-13 year olds and worked intensively with them over the course of a week, guiding them through each stage of the film-making process: from script-writing to set-building and costume-design, through to acting and filming, and taking in a bit of animation and shadow-puppetry along the way. The project took place at POLTIMORE HOUSE, and as always we are indebted to their hospitality, their flexibility, and their keenness to accommodate!

The resultant movie, entitled BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE POLTIMORE is now available online for your perusal and delectation – see below, or scroll down for some wonderful photos by Elliot Butler.

SFS2016 has been confirmed as going ahead. Details on booking will be released as soon as we have them. You might like to sign up to our mailing list to make sure you don’t miss out! Contact phil@four-of-swords.com

Inspired by the 2,400 year old proto-horror epic masterpiece by Sophocles, brought shuddering & spluttering to visceral life, in typical FOUR OF SWORDS stylee, we are proud to present, with the generous support of ARTS COUNCIL ENGLAND:

FOUR OF SWORDS’ OEDIPUS
1st-18th May 2019
7pm (couple of extra shows at 9pm)
BEER QUARRY CAVES, Seaton EX12 3AT
Tickets £15

The legendary riddle-master Oedipus does battle with the crafty Sphinx! He gains the crown of Thebes, and wins the hand in marriage of its mighty queen, Jocasta. Fast forward to the future, and Thebes is once more under threat: not from a supernatural beast like the Sphinx, but a pestilence which shall not be abated until the murderous criminal harboured in the city’s midst is exposed. Oedipus is determined to fulfil his kingly duty, to hunt out this criminal, and to leave no stone unturned in the pursuit, regardless of the consequences…!

This is an immersive, promenade (walking) theatre show. As with previous FOUR OF SWORDS productions, audiences will be standing and walking for the duration of the 1 hour 15 min show. Please wear sensible footwear, warm clothing and bring a torch to help you find your way to and from the car! Please be advised that this show is too creepy for under 11s.
