“A wonderful hour of stagey silliness” ★★★★ — Theatre Fan

“Cute and quirky” — Guardian

“So much fun” – James Graham

Following the success of “Awkward Conversations With Animals I’ve F*cked” (Underbelly Edinburgh 2018, King’s Head Theatre + National Tour 2019) @awkwardprods have returned with yet another show about… sexy animals.


A one man comedic parody that celebrates one of the biggest cinematic flops of recent years. Come along for a silly, ridiculous, very queer and unquestionably jellicle time full of “too many penis jokes” (The Guardian).

Sat 12th Feb 2022

A compelling, one-person performance storytelling piece, exploring themes of family relationships, equality, racism and freedom, through finely interwoven myth, music, personal story and folktales

Tickets for 12th Feb

Ticket Price: £11 (£9/students/under 18s)


When clearing his mother’s house, storyteller Phil Okwedy made an astonishing discovery of a series of love letters from his father to his mother. Extracts from these letters form the backdrop to a powerful and compelling performance that mixes extraordinary and everyday stories of myths, folktales and song from the African diaspora with Phil’s personal experiences of growing up as a foster child of dual heritage in 1970s Wales. Charting the time of life when children are said to view their parents as gods, Phil considers if his parents were, in fact, the gods he had believed them to be…The Gods Are All Here is a touching, funny and evocative performance of one man revisiting stories of his childhood alongside themes of equality, racism, freedom and justice. The Gods Are All Here has been developed with Arts Council of Wales Individual Stabilisation Funding and with Dramaturgy and direction by Michael Harvey – award-winning storyteller who has told stories internationally for over 25 years as well as being a leading teacher, coach and director for storytelling performances.
“Utterly compelling… a festival highlight”

Feb 5th – 6th

This is the tale of Jonah, Sophie, and a fox called Scruffilitis. It’s a love story. A dysfunctional, voyeuristic and darkly funny love story, but a love story all the same.

This production of Blink by award winning playwright Phil Porter is a collaboration between University of Exeter Alumni and Students, brought to you at Cygnet Theatre in Exeter.

Tickets for Feb 5th & 6th here


Moll

March 12th

Meet Moll: Lady of the night, discreet companion, fulfiller of dreams and her cast of larger than life gentlemen friends: Felix the spy; Anton with mafia connections; dear old Jurgen, owner of a sausage factory; Bertram, bluff and hearty, with his fingers in a few city tills….Not to mention the scrapes she got into: leaving Paris hastily, helping a spy escape, delivering dodgy brown envelopes…

Then of course there’s Samuel, lifelong friend, minder and fixer. 

“Darling polyglot Samuel. There get me, Polyglot! That’s what comes of aiming high, moving in the right circles.

Samuel, smuggled out of Eastern Europe as a child in a suitcase, never went to school, only man I know who is illiterate in three languages, always opening agencies, always looking to be the wheel in the deal, there from the beginning. My memoirs? His idea.”

So meet the Ghost Writer. Moll thought she was going to be the lead in some sort of horror story-“You know the Vampire Bride, the virginal victim locked in the tower.”

But it was the Ghost Writer who took Moll to places she didn’t want to go. Eventually, made free wheeling Moll confront what she did to Sophie, her best friend. Eventually, made Moll confess-well nearly!
