For the last four 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, one from each genre. Recent nights have included Spindle Ensemble, Malaika Kegode, Ellie Showering, Craft-D, Wilf Merttens, 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!

“Sometimes I just need to spout. Formulate overly complex word configurations and allow them the countenance to pour fourth from my mouth. Or I’m tongue tied, like a bad guy in a police cell with a glass eye and a truth to hide. Which one will I be tonight? I don’t know.”

Hippopotomouth is a spoken word piece set to music and sound that charts one day living with equal amounts of depression and awe.

Written by Matt Grinter (winner of the Papatango Prize)
Directed by Jenny Davies (Propolis Theatre)
Performed by Alice Grace and Tom Turner

Sam and Tess have grown up together in Sunny Bay. It’s a shithole, it was a shithole 20 years ago, it’s worse now. They run the rides, sell the icecreams, work the bar and watch hordes of lobster pink fat families from the cities pour into the caravans and tents before regurgitating themselves back to where they came from. If you asked them why they’re still there they’d give you a thousand reason, all different, all vague, but the answer lies somewhere at the bottom of the ocean on a day where a young boy walked away through the ankle deep waves and never came back. This is the first scene of a longer play called ‘The Rat Will Eat Her Young’ by Matt Grinter which looks at how paralysing unanswered questions can be and what happens when you’re stuck in a place that people are that always leaving.

Jenny Jope is a Bristol-based actor and improviser and a company member of the Alma Theatre’s in-house company Schoolhouse Productions and the improv troupe Scenes to an End. She will be performing an excerpt of her work-in-progress show following the experiences of a Kleptomaniac.

“My head reeled at the sheer and startling beauty, the wide, bare openness of it. The sense of space, the vastness of the sky above and on either side made my heart race. I would have travelled a thousand miles to see this. I had never imagined such a place.”

Josh Lucas is a musician, performer and Co-Artistic Director of Running Dog Theatre. Cumulonimbus is the very first beginnings of a new song cycle about amongst other thing clouds.
A love letter to the Fens and the soundtrack of the slightly rubbish imagined teenage movie that was growing up.
