Where do all the dead pigeons go? I could give you the answer right now... but it would ruin the show. Between you and me, I'm still not sure.
With felt-tip pens, and his ex-girlfriend's overhead projector, Scott Turnbull takes us on a journey through space and time. This frolic of cartoon and comic reason miraculously weaves science fiction, memoir, parable, fairy-tale and farce... it's weird, fast and inventive.
Pigeons in this show are fictional and bear no relevance to pigeons existing or dead.
It's 1956 and the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein are having their annual quiche breakfast. Will they be able to keep their cool when Communists threaten their idyllic town?
For one night only, join Durham Improvised Musical for an evening of spooky, scary and completely improvised musical comedy! You provide us with Halloween themed suggestions and we do the rest! It’s an evening you won’t want to miss.
Whilst struggling under the burden of addiction, poverty, HIV and Aids, a group of young people learn together to deal with these misfortunes and to live their lives as if there is no day but today.
Whilst tentatively visiting a friend in Georgia, presumptions emerge that Charlie Baker’s shy demeanour is due to a complete lack of English. Unsuspecting conspirators take no notice of the apparent foreigner, exposing him to dastardly plans only he may stop.
Don’t close your eyes. Look! Is that a spaceship? Strange dreams of distant planets are floating down to you through the skylight. Lion Theatre Company’s production is about to send you back to a world of child-like wonder, fusing clown and puppetry in a beautifully choreographed spectacle: MOSCOS.
