A play about Greek myths, plastic pollution and the Christmas spirit will visit the Theatre Shop in Clevedon next month and lucky Times readers will be able to win free tickets.

Produced by Somerset-based performing arts company Wassail, A Commotion In The Ocean tells the story of Demeter, the Greek goddess of the harvest, who is having a bad day.

There is far too much noise and commotion going on around her and altogether too much plastic in the oceans. Plus, her friend Poseidon is not helping.

To distract him, she sends Poseidon on a quest.

However, when he comes back with more than she bargained for, Demeter realises that his discovery might just save the planet.

Aimed at younger audiences, A Commotion In The Ocean helps children and parents connect with the issue of plastic pollution.

Full of wit and charm, with music from Bristol-based children’s entertainer Kid Carpet, A Commotion In The Ocean is a must-see show with a strong ecological message, which will be touring schools and community venues across Somerset this winter.

The play is written by Glastonbury-based storyteller Sarah Mooney, who also stars in the role of Demeter.

Comedian Ed Patrick plays Poseidon and the production is directed by Ged Stephenson.

The show, which is aimed at younger audiences, will be staged at the Theatre Shop, Clevedon on December 8 and 9 at 2pm.

Tickets, priced £8, are available at
