Cap & Dove - I Scream
Cap & Dove is a travelling mini arts centre, which houses a tiny theatre, museum and a shop. The arts centre on wheels traveled to the heart of communities in Greater Manchester between August and October 2021.
As a theatre, Cap & Dove presents a live performance programme at each of the tour locations. The Cap & Dove ensemble are six artists and theatre makers from Greater Manchester.
Mark Croasdale created 'I Scream' an absurd history lesson telling the story of ice-cream through the ages.
From spreading disease across Manchester to starting the English Civil War, ice-cream was behind it all. Or so they say anyway. A short, camp romp through time with our favourite dessert helping us question the truth and empower us to protest.
