the Shodessey

Assembleth Theatre

Troy – Something BC. A young bull herder accidentally eats a golden apple. Three Goddesses aren’t happy. And then 10 years later a city burns.

Obviously, a lot happened in between these points and several important things happened before, all of which will be shown for the first time in well over a millennium as Assembleth Theatre take you on a journey through the Trojan War as you’ve never seen it before. The sort-of truth behind Achilles heel, the golden watermelon of Paris, the twelve accidental labours of Hercules and more will be revealed as the history of one of the most important conflicts of the ancient world comes to life.

“A very funny 60-minute romp through mythology with much stomping about and clattering of swords. There's carnage, chaos and a huge amount of humour”

Clementines Live Arts

Ernie's Journey is a magical circus theatre adventure for family audiences.

 

The seamless integration of circus, physical theatre, story-telling, stage magic, poetry and puppetry will nurture and excite your inner-child.

An original live concert-harp score takes the tale from the dreamy realms of distant shores to the most raucous sea shanties! It felt like nobody really believed in Ernie and sometimes he wondered whether he even believed in himself.

He discovers that being himself and following his dreams can lead to all kinds of adventures but it is the people we love who make it all worth it.

Adolf & Winston

Living Spit

Two Actors. Two World Leaders. One Black Dog 

 

London, 1939.

​Winston Churchill looks in the mirror, realises that only he can steer our great nation through its darkest hour and steels himself for the hard road ahead.

 

Bristol, 2021.

Howard Coggins looks in the mirror, shaves, realises he looks a bit like Winston Churchill and steels himself to break some bad news to his good friend, Stu.

 

Bristol, 2022.

Stu Mcloughlin looks in the mirror and realises that he’ll have to grow a little moustache.

 

Buoyed by the success of “The Six Wives of Henry VIII” & “Elizabeth I: Virgin on the Ridiculous”, and unafraid to tackle the big subjects in an essentially inconsequential way, Living Spit’s Howard & Stu are back walking the tightrope of taste and decency with another slice of poorly-researched history. But will either of them escape from this war alive?…

“Adolf & Winston is brilliantly bonkers, with an inspired 15-minute musical race through the history of the second world war.”

Bristol Culture

"Adolf & Winston is a terrific production, gloriously silly and worth watching
