    Drink Rum with Expats

    THU 23 JAN 2020 | 7.30pm | Full £12 Conc £8 | AGE 16 +

    Celebrating their final year as Europeans, island-monkeys Becca and Louise got invited to the 2018 European Capital of Culture in Malta, having missed out on Hull last year. They went to drink rum with Brits abroad but found a lot more than they expected.

    Lads on tour Sh!t Theatre want to talk about home, your home, what we are doing in your home, what you might be doing in our home and how cheap the beers are. From our small island in the sea to another small island in the sea, Sh!t Theatre found mystery and murder in the fight to be European.

    Here it is: another excuse for the multi award-winning Sh!t Theatre to get drunk on stage.

    2019 The Scotsman Fringe First Award winner

    “The show is a masterclass in controlled chaos… Sh!t Theatre’s irreverent, energetic, rum-fuelled new show is the company’s best yet.”

    Team Viking

    THU 19 MAR 2020 | Full £12 | Conc £8 | 7.30pm | AGE 16 +

    Five years ago, James’s best friend was diagnosed with heart cancer and told he had three months to live. His last wish was to be given a full Viking burial. This is the remarkable, hilarious and heart-lifting story of how James actually gave his best mate the send-off he wanted.

    From one of the UK’s most celebrated storytellers, James Rowland’s Team Viking was a breakthrough hit at the Edinburgh Fringe, combining storytelling, comedy and live music. A comic ode to death and friendship – featuring an actual Viking helmet – the show has since toured across the world to international acclaim.

    ‘Joyous – heart-lifting and incredibly moving… as accomplished a piece of storytelling as you could hope to see’

    ★★★★★ The Stage

    ‘Equal parts sad, funny and ridiculous… a show of real courage combined with warmth and lyricism’

    ★★ ★★ Three Weeks

    ‘Masterful… one might, passionate epic’

    ★★★★ The Scotsman

    The Undefinable by She Goat

    The Undefinable  

    THU 12 MAR 2020 | Full £12 | Conc £8 | 7.30pm | AGE 16 +

    Live radio gig-theatre about unconventional relationships and the underrepresented qualities of love.

     Two dudes. Well, kind of dudes. A garage studio. A late night broadcast.  Time slips between noughties love-pop, 70s folk fever and 18th century French philosophy. The dudes slip between instruments. Everything gets tangled.  Our kind of love is tangled and slippery. Love in the in-between. Love that doesn’t have language yet.  This is the Undefinable.  

     Clear the decks for historical wigs, irreverent nudity, reckless dancing, and a whole lot of coffee – as we embark on a queer-platonic mix-tape into the unknown future and forgotten past of doing love differently. 

      ‘surreally funny…delightful playfulness’

     ‘completely engrossing – both Pastor and Turner are incredibly multi-talented’
