The Honey Man image


The Honey Man

Writer Tyrone Huggins plays the title role in this compelling contemporary production, featuring sparkling dialogue, an atmospheric soundscape, and a visually imaginative design.

Honey Man is an ageing West Indian recluse, trying to save his dying bees in a derelict cottage on the edge of rural England. Into his world bursts a 16 year old girl called Misty. His stormy encounter with this fiery, weed-smoking heir to the nearby manor house leads to an unlikely friendship, and the discovery of a secret which connects their past, present and destiny in ways they could never have imagined.

Suitable for 14+

Fat Man image


Fat Man 
(Or Orpheus is doing stand-up for the gods)

This play is a sharp new take on a classic Greek myth. It’s a bitterly funny story of love, loss and eating your way out of grief. As the audience are transformed into the gods of legend, will Orpheus ever escape his past?

A black comedy that portrays Orpheus as a washed out rock star on the comedy circuit with a very bad doughnut habit. 

With a gripping central performance by Martin Bonger, this is an absurdly entertaining yet powerful piece of theatre.

Suitable for 16+

The Ingenious Gentleman - Don Quixote of La Mancha

The Ingenious Gentleman - Don Quixote of La Mancha

Inspired by Don Quixote’s wanderings, two feisty senoritas and a downtrodden Englishman embark on a journey through Spain, taking on one of the most accomplished works of fiction ever written.

Accompanied only by a guitarist whose presence makes no sense whatsoever, they will lead you to joy, pain and ultimate wisdom. Sixty glorious minutes concluding with a common sentiment: “These guys did not read the book”.

Little Soldier presents an imaginative and provocative adventure of epic proportions, to be taken with a pinch of salt and a handlebar moustache.

Suitable for 14+

Faustus image

Faustus


The Faustus trio are three of the leading lights of their generation: Saul Rose (Waterson:Carthy, Whapweazel), Benji Kirkpatrick (Seth Lakeman Band, Bellowhead) and Paul Sartin (Bellowhead, Belshazzar’s Feast). 

They have a wealth of experience between them, brought together here in a virtuosic display of musicianship and testosterone.

Rooted deeply in the English tradition, in 2007 they received a 75th Anniversary Award from the English Folk Dance and Song Society. They were also nominated in the 2009 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

“A blend of energy and musicianship that establishes this trio as one of Britain’s outstanding folk bands…[a] distinctive blend of subtlety and attack.” The Guardian
