Performing Companies

Messy Theatre
The Myth of Psyche and Cupid
Welcome to the myth of Psyche and Cupid! A story of love and loss, gods and mortals and scheming mother in-laws. Let the Messy Theatre company take you on a journey from mountaintops to palaces, right to hell and back. As Psyche and Cupid attempted the impossible, to stay together.

Biscuit Barrel Productions
TEAlogy
From Superheroes, through families, to apocalypses; the comedy sketches SuperTEA, HeriTEAge and LastTEAbag satirise the pettiness of humankind through Britain’s love of tea. The tales, wound together by a mysterious narrator, display a narrative on the fixation on something so non-essential, having an absurd impact on more global matters.

Martin Jakeman Presents
Hamalot!
Hamalot is the rip-off panto of one of Shakespeare’s longest plays and we have condensed it into just twenty minutes! With all the conventions of Pantomime this quirky and award-winning reimagining will have you in stitches from start to finish. Who knew a Shakespearian tragedy could be this funny?!
