The Adventures of Woundman and Shirley

Chris Goode and Company

Shirley is a teenage boy with a girl’s name, growing up in suburbia and feeling like the weirdest kid in the school. Nothing makes much sense to him, and his heart belongs to a classmate who barely knows he exists.

Wound Man is an unconventional superhero, sprung from the pages of a medieval medical textbook, with an alarming assortment of weapons sticking out from every part of his body
Wound Man has just moved into a house on Shirley’s street — and he happens to have a vacancy for a teenage sidekick...
The Adventures of Wound Man and Shirley is a funny and touching story by Chris Goode about two unlikely friends and the adventures they share.

A simple, unaffected piece of storytelling… There is something so unguarded about this show that you can't help but fall in love with it.

The Guardian

For storytelling at its finest, you have to marvel at the unassuming craftsmanship of Chris Goode... Goode’s heartbreakingly romantic vision sends you home with a warm and rosy glow and the pleasure of a tender tale perfectly told

the Nightingale presents

Carp Blanche

a work in process by Colossal Crumbs

Colossal Crumbs has been developing a new work at the Nightingale and now invite you to a visual feast for the eyes, and three tales of the unexpected - merging puppetry and film all encompassed within the setting of a 1920s silent movie. This wordless performance is narrated with beautiful text, music and an alluring French(ish) man.

Welcome to the dingy, depressing life of Cuthbert, a lonely fish living in the dankest corner of a completely dissatisfactory room in pond suburbia. One day Cuthbert is unceremoniously removed from his home. Does this signal hope for this lonely chap? Or is his life on a continuing downward spiral? Meet Ludwig - an award-winning artist, fellow resident (and prawn) of Mount Pond. Ludwig is currently making his next masterpiece when the dramatic departure occurs and leaves his work ruined. He turns to the only thing that will save his creations – THE INTERWEB.

Us Puppeteers

whitebox collective

‘Us Puppeteers’ is a new play by Ella Thompson, created by Whitebox Collective. It uses dialogue, dance, and little toy soldiers to tell a disturbing tale.

The Murder of Alec Birch is being investigated in a not entirely orthodox fashion; William interviews those involved alone in his office with the aid of flirtation, manipulation, alcohol and fancy dress. All in a day’s work until an unexpected visitor with unique knowledge of the case arrives to turn it upside down…

His Spread Legs

Presented with Pink Fringe

Written & Directed by Ben Webb, Performed by Sean Hart

A young man talks about love and loss in this poetic and political bedtime story. Moving and funny in equal measure, this contemporary reworking of the ancient Song of Songs is the second part of Risking Enchantment’s The Well & Badly Loved trilogy. The trilogy explores loss and desire within the context of a rapidly changing world and can be seen at London’s Ovalhouse theatre in March 2012.

This is where we have always lived – in the waiting, the potential, between the cracks, love letters lost in a library book, messages through time. What do you remember?

Formed in 2008, Risking Enchantment is a theatre company dedicated to exploring and extending the possibilities of theatre art through collaborative effort. We want to touch people: www.riskingenchantment.com

Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England

It’s amazingly tender; even when it takes you into the sadder parts of the affair it’s tender, piercingly and drowningly, and drummed all through with sex.
