Yours Sincerely

Will Jackson has accidentally stolen 300-second class stamps from the post office. But he’s making them count. He’s going to write letters. From
reconnecting with old friends and ex-boyfriends to run-ins with the marketing department at John Lewis, stamp collecting has never been so sexy…

Based on real-life correspondences; storytelling and lip-sync cabaret collide in this queer coming-of-age comedy about the complications of 21st-century communication.

“Crammed from start to finish with belly laughs and brilliance. The
power of the pen falls more swiftly and with far more punch than the sword in this heart-warming, laugh-out-loud comedy.” – Feminist Fringe Reviews

“One of the funniest, most moving one person shows of the entire
Fringe… The magic of the piece is in how Jackson makes the everyday seem so extraordinary.” – Broadway Baby

Is This It?

Scintillating, satirical, playful stories come together with enchanting music
for an evening of madcap humour. Three tales about the world we live in
and the lives we are speeding towards. A woman escapes domestic
drudgery into the wild magic of the woods. A talented singer is swamped by social media obsession. And two sisters escape a zero-waste, wellbeing-obsessed culture into a community of misfits and outcasts.

Told with energy and verve, these stories are sure to entertain. All the while asking whether there might not be a little more to life than this.

“A simply outstanding show in the delivery of multiple skills, classic storytelling and madcap humour” Fringe Review

“Enchanting, funny and captivating! Grace and Chloe cleverly combine storytelling, movement and drama into a wholly contemporary and modern piece of theatre revealing issues of our time in a magical way!” Audience Feedback – Daisy Squires, BAFTA Award winning TV producer for BBC.

Luke Wright: The Ballad Seller

This is a free entry event. Tickets need to be booked in advance at https://theworkshop.org.uk/ or call 01553 277919

Back in Georgian times we got our news from poetry. Before papers, broadcasts or the internet, ballad sellers would hawk their doggerel on street corners for a penny. Scandalous affairs, grisly crimes, and colourful characters were brought to life in rhyming verse long before first tabloid was printed.

Now Luke Wright has rewritten the very best of these stories for the modern ear: take a trip through the Drury Lane gin shops with the Boxing Baroness; filch oysters by the dozen with Dando, the celebrated gormandiser; and escape the Bull Ring with Jemmy the Rockman. Expect scandal, excess, and beautiful flawed humanity.

“His performances rumble with rage, passion and humour. They are also peppered with brilliantly smart observations. You will leave his show brimming with energy, heart pounding and brain whirring.” The Guardian
