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.”

PAY WHAT YOU DECIDE
Our recommended donation is £4 (that’s 1 quid per act), but many people give more. Remember there is no cash point at the Wardrobe Theatre or immediately nearby.
MERELY EXISTING BY JANEY STREET THORNTON
A meeting in Canary Wharf just before the 2008 housing crisis takes an oceanic and unexpected turn which shakes the foundations of everyone in attendance. This darkly comic script about who we really want to be (you know, deep deep deep down inside) is written by Janey Street Thornton (who wrote a script for our November show) and directed by Sharp Teeth’s Stephanie Kempson. Featuring performer Peter Baker (Closer Each Day, Murder She Didn’t Write).
Composer and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Inzani is the brains behind Bristol-based neo-classical quartet Spindle Ensemble who recently released their debut album ‘BEA’. He is a member of Bloom collective who organised Bloom nights here at the Wardrobe Theatre, and also plays with Tezeta, Count Bobo, Dubi Dolczek, Leonie Evans and has released a record with poet Alabaster DePlume. Catch him in a rare solo gig.
ROISIN CROWLEY LINTON
Roisin is a poet, theatre maker and general gobshite from Newcastle but currently based in Bristol. She’s been described as “a force of nature – fierce, funny and ever so slightly opinionated” and “the voice of modern young women” by not only her mam, but also reviewers. Her gutsy poems are all about whatever she was thinking about at 3am when she couldn’t sleep, so that’d be mainly feminism, boys she fancies and her pals.
