Elizabeth I - Virgin on the Ridiculous

Thu 9 Jul • 7:30pm • Full £12 • Professional Theatre

Presented by Living Spit

1558. England. A country divided by religion and politics, teetering on the brink of civil war. The hopes of the nation lie with one woman.

2020. England. A country divided by those who enjoy plays featuring men in dresses and those who don’t. The hopes of the nation lie with two West-Country actors.

Yes, that’s right. By popular demand (and the fact that they can’t be bothered to write a new show) Elizabeth’s back! The third of Living Spit’s (un)Holy Trinity of hilarious heritage historiographies is go as Howard and Stu attempt to tell the story of the greatest monarch that ever lived – Elizabeth: The Virgin Queen.

With more live original music, silly songs, smutty shenanigans, perfunctory props, and hysterically historical horseplay, this promises to be (another) poorly researched lesson in Tudor history that you’ll never forget.

★★★★ “A case study of sinewy simplicity and honed comedy craftsmanship.” The Stage

HP Lovecraft: Gallery of Screams

Sat 27 Jun • 8pm • Full £16 Concs £14 • Professional Theatre

Two tales of Eldritch Horror
Adapted and Performed by R M Lloyd Parry

“Any magazine-cover hack can splash paint around and call it a ‘Witches’ Sabbath or ‘Portrait of the Devil.’ But only a great painter can make it scare you…”

In these two tales of terror by HP Lovecraft, the American master of the weird tale, an art critic and a philosopher get pushed to very edge of sanity by the images and sounds they confront.

Pickman’s Model introduces us to the uncannily brilliant work of Richard Upton Pickman – a genius shunned by the artistic establishment because of his sickening canvases. It is paired here with The Music of Eric Zann, an eerie and baffling tale that Lovecraft himself counted as a personal favourite.

Robert Lloyd Parry has spent the last 14 years enacting The M R James Project, a series of one-man shows based on classic English ghost stories. Here he crosses the Atlantic to pay tribute to James’s exact contemporary – a stranger, sadder man but one with an arguably even greater talent for bringing nightmares to life.

“Utterly mesmerizing” The Washington Post on The M R James Project
