17 Feb Bringing Down the Moon

Mole burrowing out of the ground sees the moon for the very first time and thinks it is the most beautiful thing he has ever seen and wants to play with it. A heart-warming tale of aspiration, friendship and adventure, with a little bit of mischief. Based on the book by Jonathan Emmet.

20-23 Feb Dogs Don’t Do Ballet

Biff is not like ordinary dogs. He likes moonlight. And music. And walking on his tiptoes. You see, Biff doesn’t think he’s a dog, Biff thinks he’s a ballerina…

Based on the book written by Anna Kemp and illustrated by Sara Ogilvie.

24 Feb Youth Circus Cabaret

Part of the 2013 National Youth Circus Event, this cabaret showcases young circus artists from around the UK, with performances from recreational clubs and high level performance groups. A fantastic opportunity to see a unique display of youth circus talent before they hit the big time.

26-27 Feb Alaska

Alaska takes you to one of the greatest frontiers of the modern world. A land where steam freezes, fish have mastered cryogenics and the Yukon River can make you disappear.

But the reality is no picnic with plummeting temperatures, technical disaster and virtually no practical skill, Alaska is a story of one man’s joyous, carefree journey which becomes a nightmarish plunge into extreme survival.

Written and performed by familiar faces from Kneehigh’s The King of Prussian, The Bacchae, The Red Shoes and others, this riot of tragi-comedy and Pythonesque dottiness is guaranteed to have audiences spellbound. Presented by Makin Projects, in association with the Exeter Northcott Theatre.

2 Mar Jon Hicks Adult Prodigy

Mr Hicks is a singularly particular man. With mildly delusional obsession, he has collected and created performances of the fantastic, acts of the awesome and feats of amazement. From magical chalk drawings, to a highly trained coterie of toy elephants. Presented with style, honour, respect and impeccable deadpan comic timing.

World-toured and renowned in variety, cabaret and street performance, and a member of the acclaimed ensemble troupe Slightly Fat Features, Jon brings his first solo show to Jacksons Lane.

5-16 Mar The Boy Who Kicked Pigs

Adapted from the cult novel by Dr Who and Little Britain star Tom Baker, this critically acclaimed production makes its London première at Jacksons Lane.

Thirteen-year-old Robert Caligari has a rather nasty habit of kicking pigs. But today Robert is going to get his comeuppance. Today is the day that Robert Caligari is going to die.

Shark mutilation, a potential apocalypse and a nasty incident involving weedkiller cornflakes all threaten to crash in this sinister farce; a deliciously gruesome tale set in the drab and dreary time when teenagers had nothing better to do than attempt to poison their sisters, plot the downfall of mankind and kick pigs.

“Possibly the most well-delivered moment of black humour I have ever seen on stage.” The Public Reviews ★★★★★

The Boy Who Kicked Pigs is presented by Kill The Beast and Sarah Brown Productions in development with The Lowry.

6 Feb – 2 Mar Romeo & Juliet

‘Two households, both alike in dignity…

From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,

Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.’

‘Quadrophenia’ meets Shakespeare in Hiraeth Artistic Productions visceral, vibrant and sexually charged adaptation of Romeo and Juliet.

From the company that created the critically acclaimed, box office successes Macbeth, A Life in the Theatre and Titus Andronicus, Shakespeare’s classic tale of forbidden love is transported into the cultural din of 1960’s Brighton.

Set in the fraught days following the violent confrontation between Mod and Rocker crowds on the shores of Brighton in 1964, tensions between the children of two powerful families, the Montagues and the Capulets, are running high.

In the midst of the conflict, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet’s eyes meet for the first time; it is a glance that will not only radically change the course of their lives, but alter the face of Brighton forever.

Bathed in 60’s music, politics and culture, Romeo and Juliet is a comedically sumptuous and emotionally tumultuous exploration of the human heart and the extremes we will go to in the name of hate and love!
