Where We Began | Thursday 4 October

BSL-interpreted

When every citizen is ordered to return to their place of birth, ‘Where We Began’examines where we could end up.

The UK’s first Theatre Company of Sanctuary, Stand and Be Counted present a wild and vivid vision of the future, combining storytelling, movement and live music. Five performers from across the globe challenge existing notions of ‘home’ in this multilingual celebration of personal identity.

DadMan: The Bathtime Warrior | Thursday 1 (8pm) & Friday 2 November (10.30am)

Baby-friendly performance on the Friday morning

This is a show about not baby-sitting your own kids.

DadMan is a warrior. He stands strong at the gates of an ideal Birth-Plan and sings the blues about Being The Only Man At A Parent And Baby Group. He courageously navigates the precipices of School Runs. DadMan enters the contest for the title of The Breadwinner armed with swords and Lego.

This show is partly quiz, partly story intertwined with live music and original songs, partly total fantasy where DadMan dives in and out of the bathtub, running into Trust, Breasts, Flexi –Hours, Soft Play Areas and Sex (not necessarily in that order, or at the same time!!).

Finally, DadMan realises there is actually another, much bigger mountain to climb.

Notnow Collective specialise in the baby-friendly, baby-welcoming and baby-proof shows for adults. Enjoy a great night out at daytime, without needing to spend on a baby-sitter! If, on the other hand, you desire a baby-free experience, join us for the evening show!

Bullish | Thursday 15 November

Audio-captioned with The Difference Engine

“I am a bull. I am a bull…ish. I live between worlds. Slip between myths with dexterous leaps. Do I scare you? How about now?” 

Meet Asterion, better known as the terrifying, blood thirsty Minotaur of Ancient Crete. Follow them through one cabaret odyssey, one strapping search for the man they might want to be.

From the makers of smash hit JOAN (Off West End, Fringe First and Stage Award winner) Milk Presents bring you BULLISH. BULLISH pits ancient mythology against modern gender navigation to furiously disrupt, traverse and rewrite the rulebook. Stepping into the ring with a gender fierce ensemble of hopers and renegades, BULLISH is a story about packing, passing, and gambling your way out of the labyrinth.

A new mythical play with songs, negotiating ancient and new territories in trans-masculine gender and identity. This show drops a proverbial bull into a china shop and hopes it breaks everything.

BULLISH premiered to a sell-out London run headlining ‘Come As You Are’ festival, the first festival celebrating trans, non-binary and gender-queer theatre.

POP MUSIC | Thursday 29 November

Fully integrated BSL-interpretation (via a central character on-stage)

Fully integrated audio-captioning on-screen on-stage (downstage left via karaoke screen)

A wedding. A free bar. A blast from the past.

G and Kayla’s lives are a mess but tonight they’re determined to Have It Large. As their veins course with adrenaline and cheap prosecco we follow them on an epic journey through thirty years of Pop.

Can the DJ save them as they become Dancing Queens, reliving their Teenage Dream, Staying Out For The Summer and Spicing Up Their Lives? Pop makes promises it can’t keep, and soon they’ll discover they have more in common than their taste in tunes.

Pop Music is an emotionally contagious rollercoaster. A night at the theatre like no other.

Shivers | Friday 14 December

BSL-interpreted (downstage left)

A trio of delightfully thrilling new ghost stories, set to the haunting sounds of the violin.

The Book of Darkness & Light contains within it some of the most chilling tales ever told. Supernatural mysteries stir from its pages.

You feel a prickle on your neck. Your blood stills. A monstrous thing creeps in the shadows. Is it all in your mind? A trick of the light? Or something far more sinister?

One thing is for certain: these stories will give you shivers.
