Dustbin Doris

It’s bin collection day and our two heroic waste collectors Max and Ola are racing to make up lost time. But what’s this? A dustbin that refuses to release its contents! What could be attached? It’s Doris, the dotty old lady who lives in the park. A struggle ensues as she clings onto her possessions. But every bin has a silver liner. So, when the pair of refuse loaders realise that ‘one man’s trash is another woman’s treasure’, an amazing trove of wonderous tales recycle their way out of the rubbish.

Rhubarb Theatre, known for their imaginative styles of storytelling, perform their latest bin-full of fantasy for all the family. Prepare for joy and sadness, laughter and tears & surprises around every corner. Dustbin Doris is waste-deep in theatrical play, puppetry, mask, dance, song and lots of laughter.

Pepper and Honey

So, what’s “home”? That’s the question Ana, a young Croatian woman, poses as she settles in the UK.

Ana has been on a journey. Croatian born, she’s arrived in the UK, determined to make it home. As she focuses on life in this new land, she is haunted by the voice of her Grandma- calling for her to stay true to national identity and yearning for Ana to come home. As Grandma bakes her traditional Croatian pepper biscuits (believed to bring a loved one back home), will this be enough to be reunited with her granddaughter? But what is “home” to Ana now?

Written by a Croatian playwright and performed by a Croatian actor, Pepper & Honey is a poignant, subtle and timely play about the journey of change, cultural differences, trying not to feel like a foreigner in your adopted country, and the conflict between upholding the traditions of the “old country” and embracing those of the new.

In these strange new times, join us for a heart-warming performance that says more now than ever about the need for tolerance and the power of human connection, even over distance.

“Flows fantastically from one perspective to the next. A story of new beginnings, loss, and the sharing of cultures.” – Reviews Hub ★★★★

“A warm and gentle show, it captures the transient and precarious nature of life as an immigrant in the UK in the current climate” – The Stage ★★★★

Halo

New ‘DigiPoi’ technology displays words, logos and pictures in the show’s finale. Stunning, elegant and extraordinary, this hugely entertaining act moves from beautifully presented feats of control and delightfully synchronous choreography to a jaw-dropping human-kaleidoscope finale.

“The Halo Glow shows are fabulous for christmas parties and light switch-ons.”

“The Halo Glow Show is an explosive visual stage act. Super-bright LED (glowing) hula hoops, juggling clubs and ‘hyperlight’ poi illuminate the complex patterns and textures drawn in the air by four virtuoso circus artists.”

Snow Dancer

The Snow Dancer is a brand-new eco-fable with a host of original songs and laughs aplenty. Something in The Great Wood is awry. The animals are desperate for sleep but with the onset of global warming, the weather is just too warm. Everyone is going around in circles and is sick of nuts before Christmas is even in sight. Something must be done. Our intrepid heroes – and their helpful humans – decide they must seek out the mysterious Snow Dancer if there is any chance of ever making it snow…

Come join us for a wondrous wander in the winter woods, for a fairy tale with a furry tail, and plenty of laughs and songs along the way, in an original winter theatre show guaranteed to delight the whole family.
