Tribes & Tribulations

Festival season will be soon be upon us, which can mean only one thing… time to scrape the mud off your wellies and get your waterproofs on! Tribes & Tribulations takes you on a trip back to 1984, to a time before portaloos and pop-up tents when festivals were really free.


With sell out shows at the Exeter Ignite Festival (2013 – 2014) and From Devon With Love Festival (2013 - 2015) Substance and Shadow Theatre return with Tribes & Tribulations, a fast moving original play written by Midge and Rosie Mullin.

Substance & Shadow Theatre are delighted to be part of the forthcoming Exmouth Festival this May, which will be hosting theatre for the first time in its 19 year history! Substance and Shadow Theatre’s Co-Director, Rosie Mullin said,

“We are very excited to be part of such a vibrant and diverse Festival”.

Tribes & Tribulations will also be performed as part of the ‘Festival @ Cygnet’, Cygnet Theatre’s inaugural festival of drama to be held in June. Rosie invites you all to
“ . . . come along and experience a festival within a festival!”

Tribes and Tribulations is set against the bleak political landscape of Thatcher’s Britain and tells the story of four diverse characters, who momentarily escape the tribulations of their everyday lives and descend upon the anarchic, vibrant, multicultural madness of a free festival. In a muddy field in deepest, darkest Wales, the tribes are gathering to exercise their right to party and four individuals embark on a unique journey, each of them searching for personal resolution, with life changing results.

Remote Goat: “Substance & Shadows experimental approach to storytelling really pays off, the end result being a gripping evening which is both entertaining and thought provoking.”

Arts Award Magazine: “Rosie and Midge Mullin, have such a talent for capturing and evoking a sense of history and controversy.”
