Living Spit’s Beauty & The Beast                                    12+

Living Spit are back with their brand new show

Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd January at 7.30pm

Living Spit is widely known as the most physically attractive two-man musical comedy theatre company in the South-West. However, in this tale as old as time one of them will have to portray an ugly, foul-tempered beast. But which one will it be?


Cinderella 2 Or…  Buttons bounces back!                     3+

…and they all lived happily ever after. Oh no they didn’t!

Sunday 3rd January at 2.30pm

Buttons isn’t happy. His best friend Cinderella has run off, got married and gone all… Princessy!

And the one person who can help Buttons find a new friend isn’t a person at all. She’s a Fairy Godmother. Oh, the shame!


Great Expectations

Performed by David Mynne Veteran Cornish actor and a founder member of Kneehigh.

Saturday 7th November at 7.30pm

Using Dickens’ original text (well, mostly!) David Mynne’s skilful, one-man performance of this epic story is deft, daft, delightful …and definitely Dickens! Be prepared to be scared and amazed, to cry and laugh!
