Written & directed by Vinnie Heaven Piggin thinks that Charmane is a kitten because that’s what he sees on the outside, but Charmane doesn’t feel like a kitten on the inside. Join two best friends as they learn about themselves and how to truly see each other. Charmane is a story about acceptance, courage and learning how to find your inner ROAR! A subtle exploration into gender for children and their families.
Created & performed by Sally Gibson and Nix Barnaville. Director & Dramaturg - Elise Heaven. (Vinnie's previous working name)
Flying high with the greatest of ease, the beautiful girl on the trapeze. The roar of the crowd, the dizzying height, the risk and the freedom, oh the touring life! But when the lycra doesn’t fit right and the party is over, there’s pain in the knees and in the right shoulder. How does she get her fill as she gets older? A life in the air, the thrills and the spills now comes with two pairs of leggings and some anti-inflammatory pills.
A sharing of a creative exploration of ageing bodies by professional aerial artists-Nix Barnaville (46) and Sally Gibson (59), including a work in progress performance, an exhibition and a Q&A session …looking forward to a continued life in the air.

Helena wanted a new cat, what she got was the devil in disguise. Scarred arms, rejected affections, police warnings, and an unforgettable trauma with a lasagne become the least of her worries in the aftermath of a referendum and a personal loss. It's time for Linda to dish out the biggest blow of them all. Based on a true story, this is a blunt and touching physical comedy that may or may not contain a cat!
'stylish, hilarious and impeccably performed' ***** Fringe Guru.

A boy falls out of a book and the pages slam shut behind him. He's lost and doesn't seem to know which story he belongs in. There's only one way to fix that- time to dive into another book and see if he fits. Using puppetry, music and storytelling Raised Eyebrows present this charming, spellbinding show for those of us- big or small- who have ever worried about fitting in.
The Little Bookshop Boy toured in 2015 as part of Theatre Fest West and the Battersea Arts Centre's Collaborative Touring Network.
