Ernie's Incredible Illucinations

by Alan Ayckbourn
February 12th to 16th, 2016
FORREST NICKERSON THEATRE
285 Pembina Hwy (South of Confusion Corner)

This zany, FAMILY-FRIENDLY British comedy for all ages is the most-produced Ayckbourn play of the past 20 years!

Ernie Fraser is a dreamer with a difference. Ernie's fantasies have the habit of turning into reality! Concerned about his "illucinations", Ernie's mum and dad bring him to the doctor. You can imagine everyone's surprise when the illucinations turn out to be real!

If "Flying Circus" characters suddenly emerged from the imagination of a young boy, 'Ernie's Incredible Illucinations' could very well be the result!

Part of the AyckbournFest 2016 Master Playwright Festival.

"Because I want children to experience the magic and excitement of live performance; something that no amount of film or video trickery can ever quite match."  — Alan Ayckbourn
