Street theatre and walkabout characters
We love taking to the streets, because we're certain to reach new people who might otherwise not access live performance. Here's a selection of our family-friendly street shows and walkabout characters.
The People's Protection League is a walkabout improvised theatre show based on an original concept by Gill Simmons. It is a piece of theatre for anyone who's ever been bullied by their cat.
If you’ve suffered from hallways of half-dead frogs, trodden on an abandoned vole bladder or been covered in vomit when your feline overdid the catnip, then The People's Protection League is for you.
Daisy, Nettle and Basil are feeling the vibes. They travel the country in their beaten up VW Camper, seeking vibes. Once they've felt the vibes, they will transform the vibes into some truly eye-wateringly so-bad-it's-funny poems.
So if you ever feel like you're a very ordinary and uninspiring person, go meet a Poet. Because they might be bad at poetry, but they know that every person has vibes. You'll leave feeling much happier about yourself, we assure you.
Escaped characters from our family show George and the Flight of the Imaginees, meet The Monitors. The Monitors are grey-suited, briefcase-wielding and very, very serious. Your Health and Safety is their paramount concern and they'll do everything in their arsenal of measuring devices to ensure that you don't have Too Much Fun. Or Imagine Too Much. I mean, you can't go around just imagining things. Where would it end?
So serious they are utterly ridiculous.
