Geppetto: Extraordinary Extremeties

Fri 12th, Sat 13th, Fri 19th, Sat 20th January


A one-man puppet theatre spectacle, Geppetto: Extraordinary Extremities is a tale of resilience and adaptation that tells the story of a puppet-maker and recent widower, Geppetto, as he attempts to perform the mythical love story of Perseus and Andromeda by himself for the first time, as he scrambles to devise stories, characters, and even limbs. Geppetto was inspired by an NPR story on Hugh Herr, whose feet were amputated after a climbing accident and who now designs advanced artificial limbs.



Jesus & Lucifer: The Greatest Love Story Never Told

2 February 7.30pm


Two confused Angels, one old-school Dictator, and a slime-ball called Gabriel. Will love triumph for Jesus and Lucifer? A toe-tapping, jaw-dropping musical extravaganza - sent from the Heavens Above. Join God and the gang for a brand new take on a very old story. Produced by Snipper Nixon - a professional family company who “never fight” and whose Edinburgh Fringe shows delight the press – “one of the best and most charming new shows”, “genuinely funny”, “four-star performances”.

Each week is a new race to creative rock bottom as four hosts who should know better regale one another with fresh stories of bathroom mishaps, act out their hastily written Doctor Who scripts, quiz one another on the subtle differences between volcanoes and sex offenders, or simply abuse deserving strangers over the internet.
