Crowstarver

Crowstarver
the Crowstarver is a gripping and moving story set in a close-knit rural community in the early days of the Second World War. When a baby is found abandoned in a lambing pen he is adopted by the shepherd Tom Sparrow and his wife Kathy. as the boy grows up it's clear to everyone that the mystery of his birth is not the only thing about him that's special. John Joseph turns out to have an extraordinary gift with animals of all kinds. Foxes will eat out of his hand, hares and otters come close and he can even gentle a bucking bronco in true horse whisperer style. as the years pass, being different means John faces threats of all kinds, from ignorance and prejudice to the war itself, which brings its own share of tragedy. Full of unforgettable characters and scenes the Crowstarver combines an inspiring and heart-warming story with powerful performances, beguiling animal puppets and a stunning live score.

Donald Goucher is a popular children's writer blessed with a wildly fertile imagination.

Sollis sets Goucher to work writing stories about Hiawyn making mischief behind enemy lines - a lethal shaving brush, an exploding souvenir of the eiffel Tower, a deadly Chianti bottle. and as Goucher beavers away doing his patriotic duty Hiawyn becomes ever more fiendish and corrupt with disastrous and terrifying consequences. . .

Hammer & Tongs

Synopsis:
Hammer & Tongs digs deep into the human compulsion to argue the toss. Two men and a woman quibble, tiptoe into tiffs, debate high-mindedly, negotiate shoals of red herrings, take offence and descend into glorious, undignified, disgraceful, bad behaviour. From farcical fisticuffs at a wedding disco to squabbling for control of the TV remote, Hammer & Tongs presents a very human comedy - physical, funny, absurd, musical, moving, and absolutely bloody-minded.

Ministry Of Fear, The

Synopsis:
When arthur Rowe bumbles into a garden fete during the Blitz he's haunted by his past and innocent of his future. But from the moment he enters Mrs Bellairs' fortune-teller's tent he trips into a hell of corruption and betrayal where he's way, way out of his depth. With a powerful whiff of Hitchcock and echoes of film noir classic the Third Man, the Ministry of Fear is both taut espionage thriller and unnerving portrait of a mind in free fall. Renowned for creating exciting and imaginative work, theatre alibi brings its unique style to Graham Greene's surreal masterpiece.

Shelf Life

Synopsis:
Our bodies haven't changed much in the last forty thousand years. We're still suited to hunting and gathering through the dappled green light. I''s a long way from the savannah to Safeways. and yet here we find ourselves, apes with trolleys, browsing through the part-baked and the dry-cured, the oven-ready and the virtually-fat-free, wondering why we always get the one with the wonky wheel. . .theatre alibi wheel you through the supermarket experience with flair and visual panache to the warm, passionate music of Spiro on mandolin, fiddle and guitar. By turns daft and deep, Shelf Life finds humanity lost amongst the aisles.
