Beautifully performed by Viv Gordon winner of Judge's Prize at Arts in Health South West 2015. I Am Joan is a one woman show. A hopeful comedy about a woman in recovery from trauma finding empowerment by connecting with various inspiring Joans, such as Joan Collins, Joan Jett and Joan of Arc, all of whom embody elusive qualities of resilience and self-belief. Think Dynasty meets Joan of Arc with lashings of cherry bakewells, a heavy dose of glam rock and tissues for all at the end. Irreverent, laugh out loud, hold your breath and weep silently; this show will stay with you long after you watch it.
Instant Wit; the quick-fire comedy improvisation show. Fresh and inventive, the perfect pick-me-up tonic!
A body is discovered and a detective arrives. The suspects all seem to have a motive and the plot thickens. But there's a twist... Each night the story, characters, settings and even the ultimate identity of the killer are established, based on your suggestions! It's a race against time to uncover the murderer. Red herrings, sinister motives and cold blooded killers grace the stage as the audience and cast alike feel the thrill of the chase. Was it the Red Jones, the butler, who pushed the Lady Bloom down the stairs when she caught him stealing the silverware? Was it the quiet Dr. Goldsmith, set to acquire the shipping company now that Mr. Moss is floating face down in the swimming pool? Gasp as the dastardly plot is uncovered at the finale and the guilty party exposed, but can you guess whodunnit before the end?
Come along, take a seat, get ready and go nuts with Nutty Noah at this fabulously funny, musical and magical entertainment show. Nutty Noah's award-winning show includes cheeky original songs, crazy juggling and amazing magic. If you ask him nicely, he will even balance a ping pong ball on the end of his nose! Nutty Noah mixes music with humour and plays some very unusual instruments, one of which he invented himself. Nutty Noah is one of the most in-demand family entertainers in the country, which has won him the title king of all things silly.
A blind man walks into a bar and tells anyone who'll listen that he was once the king of darts. He orders a pint and settles down to recount the story of his glorious rise to the top - and how dark secrets brought him down. Rex the King is the story of a Somerset darts champion who ruled the world, but lost it all - it's a theatrical tale that's witty, uplifting and ludicrously tragic. Expect blood and sweat, tears and beers, not to mention plenty of songs and silliness.
Storytelling, live music and puppetry combine to tell a tall tale about stepping out of your comfort zone and saying yes to adventure! Mr Middle has created a predictable life of routine for himself and his loyal dog, Shackleton. Together they enjoy simple walks and evenings in, but Shackleton longs for more adventure. Not one for surprises, Mr Middle keeps his world as small as possible, but one day the garden gate is left ajar... A fun and memorable musical tale of one man and his dog as they rediscover the thrills of adventure.
Using music, balloons and too much wrapping paper, Shoofly Theatre shows how fun numbers can be with your friends. Craig has been invited to his best friend's Birthday Party. There is an invitation to read, presents to wrap and cakes to buy. Who will explain the rules of Musical Chairs? Will there be enough balloons?
Age 4-7. Running time: 40mins
We Are Bronte is a piece of comic visual theatre inspired by the real and imaginary worlds of Yorkshire's literary siblings, presented in Publick Transport's irreverent style. Physical theatre collides with clowning and improvisation as two performers deconstruct not only gothic themes of love, madness, repression and revenge, but also themselves. Part play, part enquiry into the act of putting on a play, this promises to be no ordinary Bronte adaptation.
We Are Bront? was developed in association with Bristol Ferment (Bristol Old Vic's artists development programme), and is supported by Arts Council England. Additional support was given by Tobacco Factory Theatres and The Bike Shed Theatre.
