Showstopper on tour!

May 2nd 2018 CEST

Ever wondered what a day in the life of a Showstopper on tour is like?! Look no further! Ruth Bratt is here to reveal all…! “Most tour days begin at home. Those of us who live in North London tend to jump in Phil Pellew’s car and have a daytrip. We do a lot of single night touring, and we’ve been on tour for about 7 years now, so we’re all getting to a stage where we REALLY like our own beds.

The Society of Strange and Showstopper workshops

January 26th 2018 CEST

*Society of Strange* Showstoppers Adam Meggido and Andrew Pugsley, alongside the brilliant Alex Bartram, spin tales of the macabre and uncanny in this spooky new take on improvised theatre. If you thought improv was only comedy, think again and prepare to be spooked! Sometimes funny, sometimes creepy, Society of Strange is an hour of portmanteau horror inspired by the Weird Tales movement of the 1920s-30s, and pays homage to disturbing fiction old and new - HP Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, Stephen King, Tales of The Un ...Continue Reading
