WE ARE BRONTE

Tuesday 26 September at 7.45pm

Tickets - £10, concessions - £8

Morecambe and Wise meets David Lynch in this madcap reimagining of the Brontë myth, presented in Publick Transport's playful and irreverent style. Taking the real and fictitious worlds of Yorkshire's literary siblings as their inspiration, two performers combine rigorous physical theatre with anarchic comedy to deconstruct not only gothic themes of love, madness and revenge, but also themselves.

“Cracking adlibbing…a joke-rich rallying call for a better Britain” The Guardian

 “Potent live performer….can nail a nonsense with beautiful economy of words” The Times

Worried about your job? Worried about your family? Worried about yourself? Worried about the health service? Education? Climate change? World War 3? Worried about worrying? Sod it! Come and have a laugh about it. It’s oneof the things we do best. Or is it? Was it something we did best but like everything else has now gone West. Or South. Or East. Ah - go on. Take a risk. Put on your lucky pants and your party shoes – and get yourself on a night out.Or maybe come out dressed in a binbag, top hat and clogs. We could all use a laugh.

As seen on Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo, Q.I. etc. - and repeated on Dave.

SOFIE HAGEN: Dead Baby Frog

Thursday 9th November at 7.45pm

Recommended for ages 14+

Tickets -£12, concessions - £9

Sofie Hagen is unquestionably one of the most talked-about comics of the moment. A modern legend in her native Denmark, she burst onto the British scene by winning Best Newcomer at Edinburgh Festival 2015; her 2016 follow-up, ‘Shimmer Shatter’, wasa second total sell-out. She’s spoken to millions as former host of ‘Guilty Feminist’ and current host of ‘Made of Human’ podcasts, and appeared on ‘The One Show’, ‘The Now Show’ and ‘Live From The BBC’. This, her biggest national tour to date, is a brand new show packed with brilliant, off beat observation, passionate argument, and jokes. Also: one parable.

BIKEOLOGY

Friday 17th November at 7.30pm

Tickets -£21

Journalist, television presenter and best-selling author Ned Boulting is back this Autumn with his acclaimed ride through the world of Bikeology, featuring brand new tales from life in the cycling lane, as well as the inside scoop from Ned’s time at the 2017 Tour de France. 

What drives the cyclist (apart from a sturdy, well-oiled chain) to such ecstasies of endurance? What curious, deep-rooted passions are aroused by the sight of a simple pair of padded shorts? And what on earth is a derailleur? 

From the humble commuter to the winner of the Tour de France*, Boulting takes an off-centre look at what it means to ride abike, drawing on his own underwhelming adventures in the saddle to his fourteen summers spent hurtling around France in pursuit of the sport’s biggest names including no less than Cavendish, Wiggins, Froome and of course Armstrong. 

A breakneck descent through the history ofthe sport followed by a lung-bursting climb into the present day - all two-wheeled life is here. Keep your wits about you, as you might find yourself up on stage to compete in Ned’s search for the nation’s Number 1 Bikeologist!
