What's On

Coulrophobia

 

Tuesday 28th August at 7.30pm

Tickets £12/Concessions £10 + booking fee

ON SALE NOW

Dik and Adam are Clowns! They couldn’t fight their way out of a paper bag, let alone a surreal cardboard world. Why are they there and what are they supposed to be doing? They know something sinister is afoot (wearing really big shoes…) and they need to get out before it’s too late. Join them on a ridiculous, anarchic, often hysterical and sometimes terrifying quest for freedom.

This 75-minute show featuring slapstick, mime, puppetry and a LOT of cardboard is being performed at the Wharf as part of the Devizes International Street Festival on Tuesday 28th August.

Coulrophobia contains disappointing nudity and some language better suited to those aged 14+.

Coulrophobia is funded by Arts Council of England and Nordland Visual Theatre.

This show is part of the Devizes International Street Festival programme – for more information see the DOCA website: www.docadevizes.org.uk

Snake in the Grass by Alan Ayckbourn

Directed by Tess Richards

Monday 24th to Saturday 29th September 2018 at 7.30pm

Tickets £12/Concessions £10

Annabel Chester returns home after living in Australia for over 30 years to attend the funeral of her father. She is met, not by her sister Miriam, but by her father’s former nurse. Alice tells her, that she has evidence Miriam murdered her father and if she is not paid £100,000 she will inform the police.

But nothing is as it seems and the plot keeps the audience guessing right up until the final curtain.

This is not your usual Alan Ayckbourn. It is a stunning, eerie thriller with more twists and turns than an alpine road but with enough of Sir Alan’s wonderful dialogue to keep the laughs interspersing the gasps.
