Shelf Life (2000)
Our bodies haven’t changed much in the last forty thousand years. We’re still suited to hunting and gathering through the dappled green light. It’s a long way from the savannah to Safeways. And yet here we find ourselves, apes with trolleys, browsing through the part-baked and the dry-cured, the oven-ready and the virtually-fat-free, wondering why we always get the one with the wonky wheel…
Theatre Alibi wheel you through the supermarket experience with flair and visual panache to the warm, passionate music of Spiro on mandolin, fiddle and guitar.
By turns daft and deep, Shelf Life finds humanity lost amongst the aisles.
The Boy Who Climbed Into The Moon
Adapted by Daniel Jamison
A magical tale of big ideas and sky-high courage...
Odd ideas are floating around Paul’s street; Mabel’s brother hides under a brown paper bag and Clarence the poodle thinks he can fly. But Paul has the oddest idea of all. He thinks that the moon is a hole in the sky and he’s going to climb into it...
A fantastical story by David Almond, award-winning writer of Skellig and My Dad’s A Birdman.More Information
Three cooks, three very different lives. Each course tells a story.
Six O’clock comes and three weary workers return to their cosy abode. With the barest of hellos, they take off their coats and put on their chefs whites. They are Starter, Main and Pudding and each night, without fail, they cook each other a delicious meal. Starter makes starter, Main makes main and Pudding makes pudding.
They soon set to work in the kitchen, dancing round each other like Morecambe and Wise making breakfast. Starter fashions an exquisite nibble of microscopic, but mouthwatering delight. Main conjures a dish that carries her heart home on a whiff of basil and lime. Pudding steams a duff the size of a football, so no-one need fear going hungry. Three cooks, three very different lives. Each course tells a story.
Theatre Alibi combine vivid storytelling, live music and a good old boogie to bring this funny and creative household to life.More Information School Bookings
