Hyde & Seek

hyde.jpg

Written by Ben Old Field (Cube Essential Theatre) 

Performed by Michael Tonkin-Jones (Pipeline Theatre’s ‘Spillikin: A Love Story’

Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st April at 7pm

One performer. Seven characters. 500+ light & sound cues. No technician. 

Using touch sensitive props and innovative lighting the entire show hinges on one man and some rather fantastic tech.

They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions…

Set in the murky gothic world of cobbled streets and gas-lit lamp posts of R.L.Stevenson’s timeless allegory on duality this is far from a mere retelling. Charismatic stage doorman Albert met both Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Now, years later, in the crumbling ruins of the theatre he’s inviting you to hear the story of what really happened behind the scenes. 

Fast paced, intimate and lavishly visual story-telling. A vaudevillian ghost story with puppets, song, technical wizardry and of course… danger!

'Hyde and Seek is a beautifully crafted piece of theatre, and a lesson in the art of storytelling. It had us laughing, crying and - literally - jumping out of our seats with fear- often at the same time.’ (‘Hyde & Seek’) - Mark Creese, RCH Radio 

 

‘Tonkin-Jones performance as a lovestruck, robot-obsessed teenage Raymond is uncomfortably truthful.’ (‘Spillikin: A Love Story’  by Pipeline Theatre) -Alice Saville, Exeunt Magazine

Summer Shivers 2019: Shadows

summer.jpg

An evening of spine-chilling tales and unnerving live sound

Directed by Sam Enthoven

Do you like stories that make the hairs stand up at the back of your neck? Sam Enthoven's SHIVERS nights have been giving aficionados that sensation of spiders down the spine for more than a year now. Sam picks the finest frightening literature and finds great performers to read it. The twist with SHIVERS is that these tales are then paired with live sounds from his uniquely uncanny instrument the theremin and some of the best up-and-coming artists from London’s experimental music scene. The result is a kind of cinema for the ears and imagination, with storytelling and sound combining to draw you irresistibly in, to reach cold fingers into your mind, to give you SHIVERS. 

"An unusual theatrical experience, part concert, part creepy Jackanory" -TheReviewsHub

Choose Your Own Adventure: Bureaucracy Edition

Choose Your Own Adventure: Bureaucracy Edition is an interactive storytelling experience like no other... because no other storytelling experiences involve this many forms. 

This adventure in administration was born out of the improvised celebration of the mundane, 'Dullprov Present an Evening of Subject Matter', a cabaret of banality. 

Since then, Adventure Administrator Helen has developed more tales to delight and dismay, and seeks to find the childlike joy in the everyday inconveniences of adult life. Inconveniences like automated phone systems, never-ending security questions and spelling mistakes in your promo picture...

Audiences are invited to choose their ownadventure in this interactive story game which blends together exciting quests, stand up comedy and incorrigible systems and processes. 

It'll be fun, honestly.

14+ May contain bad language or adult themes... It's really up to you, it's your adventure. Latecomers may not be admitted. Ticket purchases are non refundable.
