Freya, a Viking girl and friend of the gods, is in a bit of a pickle. She is about to become a giant's dinner! Freya, a Viking girl and friend of the gods, is in a bit of a pickle. She is about to become a giant's dinner! Freya must use all her wits to escape old Gorm's cooking pot and prove that friendship is stronger than the strength of a giant and more powerful than the magic of a god. The rivalry between the Norse gods and the Frost Giants is brought humorously to life in this colourful re-telling of two famous Viking myths and Freya's own saga
Mitch Benn is not only one of the most sought after acts on the comedy circuit but is widely acknowledged as one of the best writer/performers of comic songs in the country.
It's been a morbid time for "the country's leading musical satirist" (The Times); he's turned 46 - over the hill by anyone's standards - his personal life is in turmoil, and his childhood heroes are dropping like flies. At times like these, a man feels the Reaper creeping up on him... But is death anything to fear? And is it really the end? (Yes. Yes, it is, sorry!) Mitch confronts his - and YOUR - mortality with hilarious (and tuneful) consequences. Join him! It's time you're not getting back! The 'Now Show' aside, Mitch has recently co-presented with Harry Shearer BBC Radio 2's 'Anatomy of a Guitar' as well performing 'Mitch Benn Is The 37th Beatle' and presenting 'Spank The Plank' both for BBC Radio 4. An occasional series where Mitch takes his unique and quirky look at a few more rock icons has been commissioned by Radio 4.
A disease has broken out. In a cold village on the edge of nowhere the young are being infected, it's transforming them into monstrous creatures. Villagers fearfully watch their children for symptoms. Bolek, the local scholar, makes a breakthrough in finding a cure. Few, however, are prepared for the gruesome consequences.

Private James Randall left Helmand six years ago. But as he's about to discover, Helmand is still very far from leaving him. On Remembrance Sunday, in an attempt to repair the broken relationship with his young son, the two worlds of civilian Britain and the front line of Afghanistan brutally and catastrophically collide. Much Further Out Than You Thought shines a different light on the very human cost of war.
Reginald D Hunter's work is often brutally honest, frequently controversial but always meticulously measured and thought out. He is one of the few performers to have been nominated for the highly coveted main Perrier Award in three consecutive years and has become a well-known face on primetime television shows such as Live At The Apollo and QI and is a frequent guest on Have I Got News For You.
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.
