For the last three and half years Sharp Teeth Theatre have been bringing together theatre, storytelling, poetry and music to create a night of riotous Sunday fun. They’ve had raps about stolen bikes, poems about cottaging, performances from drag kings, new writing about women who climb the shard, and improvised storytelling about Lance Armstrong getting lost in a bathtub of meat, amongst many other things.
Each night features four acts, recently including Spindle Ensemble, Malaika Kegode, Ellie Showering, Craft-D, Madeline Shann, Lucy Harrington, Claire Murphy, Katie Storer, and more – the best of local and not so local talent. And it’s all Pay What You Decide!
Check out line-ups online, and come on down for an evening of joyous art, like a variety show, but better, better, better!
“We were spoilt as the bill threw up outstanding humourous and thought provoking acts.”

MARCH LINE UP
Chris White is a poet, performer and the current (possibly former, depending on when you read this) Bard of Exeter, and we love having him here at Sharp Teeth.
He performs regularly around the South West, and has made a couple of spoken-word shows, including Sunked, a show about raising the Titanic to impress your mum
“Think of the open expressiveness of Russell Howard and the self-deprecation of David Mitchell, and your halfway there” – Inter:mission
RED RAY AND THE REPROBATES
The South Bristol Voice once described Red Ray and the Reprobates as being “shambolic,” and on your first encounter with this rough-around-the-edges Country and Rock-n-Roll group, you’d be forgiven for perhaps imagining them as a leaderless band of wandering outlaws, out to shake-down some far-flung Old West town. The Reprobates have crept into Bristol’s counterculture music scene under the cover of night, before seizing it by the lapels, and shaking it to the core.
Self-described “dirty, working-class motherfuckers,” the Reprobates are a microcosm of the times – angry young men whose new album – Red Ray and the Reprobates – perfectly encapsulates a state-of-being felt by anyone struggling to get-by in uncertain times. From Quicksand, and Hard Luck Barnaby, to Giant Song; The Reprobates’ music is harsh, hilarious, and a righteous litany against the Sisyphean toil of life in an uncaring, neon world. The retro, Cash-esque stage presence, interwoven with traces of Punk, Grunge, and Brit-Pop, gives a delightfully raucous voice to a generation left-behind.
Megan is a Bristol based performer and storyteller who has worked as an actor/musician and clown with numerous companies including Theatr Iolo, Sheffield Theatres, Tutti Frutti, York Theatre Royal, Ramshacklicious and Fine Chisel. She has performed across the UK and abroad in theatres, castles, village halls, woodlands, festivals and the streets.
Megan has worked on a variety of short films and has provided British Sign Language support in some of these as well as numerous plays. She is co-developer of Squeezy Green’s Compendium of Games in which she is also the second half of the presenting duo Squeezy and Finney. Recent work as a storyteller includes adventures with The Whispering Wood Folk, Open Attic Theatre Company, and Valleyfest.
THE ORESTEIA, BY FIONN GILL
Family. Vengence. Mother and son. What happens when personal trauma blurs the lines between the real and imagined traps of the mind? How does one man find ways to laugh about the cycle of revenge and violence from which his body cannot escape?
Inspired by Aeschylus’ ancient greek play The Oresteia (translation by Ted Hughes), with dramaturgy by provocateur Heidi Hollis, and film by Mattias Tamar-Gill.
You may have seen Fionn in A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Bristol Old Vic, A Spark and A Beating Heart at Trinity Centre, Coram Boy, and many other performances.
