The Allotment

You’ll meet two gardeners with their beautiful bouncing babies, and they DEFINITELY need a hand or two to help them to take care of their little family.

Feed them soil bottles, change their muddy nappies, and you never know, you might even meet Jessica, the Sweet-Potato beauty queen or Babs the down hill-racing Watermelon.

Delicate Flowers 

“I think all this talk about girls not boxing is old fashioned, girls aren’t the delicate flowers they used to be.” Barbara Buttrick.

Everybody needs a hero, right?

Karen’s a young boxer desperate to use her skills to combat her struggles in balancing home life with her ambitions. Inspired by the story of iconic Hessle boxer and wrestler Barbara Buttrick, she’s got a voice on the male-dominated world of sports, and she wants you to hear it.

This mesmerising one-woman play tells the story of a world champion whose tenacity and skill took her to the top of her profession, and one who’s aiming to get there.

The Giant Jam Sandwich

One hot summer’s day, four million wasps invade the quiet village of Itching Down. They’re noisy, nasty and worst of all, they don’t mind who they sting! That is until the baker has an INGENIOUS idea…

Join the villagers in their giant sandwich-making plan to defeat the pesky invaders in this stage version of the much-loved picture book.

A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad) 

A hilarious cabaret musical about depression, that explains, sings, and throws glitter about how it’s OK not to be OK.

Sally’s a happy person. She doesn’t let little things get her down and almost never cries. But she’s got an illness. It makes her feel like she isn’t the person she wants to be, but she doesn’t want anyone to know about it.

Joyful, buoyant, gleeful, slightly silly, sugar coated, unrelenting and completely super happy! Except for the bits about depression.
