Time & Again Theatre Company: Greyhounds

The year is 1941 and rehearsals for Henry V are underway…

Greyhounds entwines Shakespeare's famous story of warlike Harry with the everyday trials and tribulations of small village life during the Second World War. Set in their local village hall, whilst the war rages above them the residents of Shuttlefield struggle to stage a production of Henry V to raise money for their local Spitfire fund. You’ll find them rehearsing, gossiping and indulging in some seriously bad acting as the night of the performance draws ever closer.
This piece of new writing was a hit at the Edinburgh Festival 2018, and combines Shakespeare, with a touch of comedy and some truly vintage flair.

Down The Pub With Luke Wright

Luke Wright: Down The Pub With Luke Wright

Flamboyant, political and riotously funny, Luke Wright creates inventive poems with loads of heart. Part Essex wide boy, part dandy fop, he writes from the sidelines about small-town tragedies and national farce, then performs his work with snarl and spit. Since 2006 he has written and performed nine spoken word shows and two verse plays, touring them to top literary and arts festivals. Alongside his own shows, Luke is John Cooper-Clark’s regular support act, performing at venues such as The London Palladium and The Palace Theatre in Manchester. He’s won a 4Talent Award, a Stage Award, a Fringe First Award, a Saboteur Award, and a NFBC short film competition at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.

Title and Deed

Farnham Maltings Touring: Title and Deed

Will Eno, the celebrated American playwright, has written a haunting, funny, quietly moving examination of what it is to search for home, that singular place in the world where we can feel complete. A slightly foreign man gathers us together to sort through his surprising experience of that search and shares his story, comparing the odd traditions in his country of birth with the realities of life here

A beautiful and poetic evening of story-telling from the team that brought you Brilliance and The Iranian Feast

Suitable for ages 14+
