She’s A Good Boy – 14+


Written and performed by Elise Heaven

Elise is called pretty the same amount of times as being called sir in an average week.

If Elise had £1 for every time someone has asked ‘Are you the best man?’ then Elise would have £2.

Elise is often asked, ‘Are you a boy or a girl?’ the answer to this question is: ‘No’.

An honest, moving and hilarious show exploring non-binary gender using Elise’s real life experiences.

£9/£8 children
A booking fee of 50p per ticket applies

Join Elise following the performance for an informal safe space post show discussion in the egg café.

Dadman: The Bath-Time Warrior – Adults

DadMan stands strong at the gates of an ideal birth-plan, and sings the blues about Being The Only Man At A Parent And Baby Group. He courageously navigates the precipices of School Runs. Partly quiz, partly story with live music, partly fantasy where DadMan dives in and out of the bathtub, running into Trust, Breasts, Flexi-Hours, Soft Play Areas and Sex. Finally, DadMan realises there is actually another, much bigger mountain to climb…

Baby-friendly matinees enable you to enjoy great entertainment without needing to spend loads on a babysitter!

This show, which takes place in the egg, is part of the Ustinov Studio’s Visiting Company Season.

Star Flower

Somewhere between human and animal, two nocturnal creatures find friendship in their night-time world and paint the night sky with a rainbow of colours before transforming and letting go as dawn breaks.

Pushing the limits of their physicality to take us into a world which is emotionally vivid, dreamlike and deliciously fun, the two-person cast plays with the edges of what we think of as real and the nature of human relationships.

Skilled aerial acrobatics, partner acrobatics and physical theatre are the raw materials of the piece. These will be enhanced by visual projections and a musical soundscape delicately crafted to bring elements of the natural world indoors.

Hansel & Gretel

A modern retelling of this classic fairytale finds Hansel and Gretel overwhelmed by the sights and smells of the city. Our two heroes must tackle situations that would have the bravest of adults shaking in their boots as they find their way home in a show that celebrates children’s tenacity.

Vicki Igbokwe, choreographer and founder of Uchenna Dance (The Head Wrap Diaries), will bring an Uchenna twist to this well-known tale, weaving her fierce and distinctive New York club styles, house, waacking and vogue, with African and Contemporary dance.

Expect to groove in your seat in a show that will transport you to a world far from yours with some surprising similarities.

Muckers

Paloma has always mucked about with Pijon. They run wild. They dress up like tigers, flamenco dancers, queens, kings, rabbits and Lady Gaga. Life is fun and funny and a little bit loopy.

Until, all of a sudden, Paloma comes face to face with a blinding light named Big Luce, and Paloma and Pijon are catapulted into a strange new world.

Created by award-winning theatre-maker Caroline Horton and an international ensemble, Muckers is a funny, magical, physical production. With original songs and a tapas-sized portion of Spanish, this mischievous show asks what it takes to stand proud and be true to ourselves, and how we empower the next generation to do the same.
