“I fell in love once. With the wrong woman”

 

This is a love story. A love story set in three different times and three different bedrooms…

odd man out - double bill

Ripley Theatre in association with Black Coffee Theatre are proud to present ODD MAN OUT; two beautiful stories of two people that don’t quite fit in.

 

RABBITSKIN by Dominic Grace

 

Joe can name his twenty favourite authors straight off the top of his head and quote his favourite books perfectly. He’s a master storyteller like his father, a man who can make the ghosts and monsters of Irish legends seem as real as the rabbits he skins and cuts up on the kitchen table. But when Joe tries to tell his own story he finds it difficult to keep on track. All stories must come to an end eventually, but that’s the bit that Joe doesn’t want to tell.

 

DIARY OF A WELSHCAKE by Lesley Ross

 

The story of an elephant abroad: a reluctant Welsh hero who will discover unexpected love in the mountains of Hong Kong. Prepare to be taken half way round the world, to laugh, to cry and to throw things at the actor in front of you.
