To Helen Back

Helen Seymour admits you into a surreal hospital to create a funny, unique and powerful theatrical experience. It blurs the boundaries between spoken word, comedy and performance art.

So come on, be on the look-out while Helen sneaks around wards, X-ray rooms and cupboards to discover the bizarre, the bemusing and the ba… ah, well that would be telling.

WHY? A witty, thought provoking analysis of sickness, health and what it really means to recover

Griff Rhys Jones - Where Was I?

The star of Not the Nine o'clock News, Smith & Jones and Three Men In A Boat.

Griff as he airs stories, anecdotes, reminiscences and outright lies – from forty years of travelling – down rivers and up mountains, into Africa, out of India, and across the arid wastes of the BBC canteen. It's a career, if you mean bouncing chaotically downhill without a map.

WHY? ‘Great comedy’ ★★★★ The Telegraph
