David Mynne – The Canterbury Tales

This is Chaucer... but not as you've ever seen it. From the company that brought you A Christmas Carol, Dracula and The Odyssey comes a one-man performance of The Canterbury Tales. Revered as one of the most important works in English literature, The Canterbury Tales paints an ironic and critical portrait of English society in the middle-ages. All of life is here in these few bawdy, funny, serious and sometimes shocking, short stories. Experience a journey down the foul and fetid footpaths of fourteenth-century England, told with the usual irreverence, wit and silliness!

Living Spit – Virgin on the Ridiculous

Howard Coggins and Stuart Mcloughlin can no longer rely on apparent physical resemblances to Tudor monarchs. They’ve done Henry VIII, and the truth is neither of them looks like anyone else. But they won’t be deterred. They’re just going to have to dig a little deeper. Act a little better. Live a little dangerous-er, as they attempt to tell the story of the greatest Monarch that ever lived - Elizabeth: The Virgin Queen.

Daniel Bye and Boff Whalley – These Hills Are Ours

Dan and Boff decided to run a series of routes from the centre of the city in which they found themselves, to the top of the peak overlooking the city. In story and in song, this is the story of what they found out – about the relationship between city and country, between wild and controlled, about land ownership, about why we’re drawn to wild places – and about what we’re really running from.
