PWYDFor the last two 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 Rebecca Tantony, Malaika Kegode, Chris White, In Bed With My Brother, Propolis Theatre, Red Ray, Sam Grudgings, 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.”

EBB BY NIC MCQUILLAN
Ebb is the story of one man’s attempts to keep alive the memory of someone he has loved. It is a funny and honest account about trying to cling on to what you value most in someone else, and the impossibility of fully integrating our rational and irrational selves. Nic McQuillan is an actor and performer based in Bristol. His work has been performed at the BAC, The Arts Theatre, The Space and Brockley Jack. He is particularly interested in making work about the intangible, and what cannot be easily defined or described.

PHILIP NAYLOR
“That’s who I am” – it’s all very well telling people that it’s OK to talk about their problems, but do you really want to know?

Radio 4 “Genius” and lapsed ballroom dancer PJ Naylor rarely talks about himself – largely because it doesn’t feel like he’s ever done anything that interesting.

Philip collaborates in this autobiographical piece with directors Stephanie Kempson and Maisie Newman, and composer Rowan Evans.

SVEN STEARS
Sven Stears will break you down, and build you up.
His poetry uses powerful imagery and metaphor to explore raw concepts and the gritty realism of life.

Sven has toured the country, performing at many events across the south east, compered festivals, and runs his own poetry night, Inkbomb at the Loco Klub in Bristol. He has also taught poetry in schools and youth groups throughout Kent. He’s even run radio shows on poetry. He was one of Bristol’s finalists for Hammer and Tongue in 2016..

“An Emerging Star” – Dan Simpson, Canterbury Poet Laurette
“Sven uses metaphors that stay with you” – Leah Cohen, Write Angle
