Sketch Slaps - Slappy Anniversary will celebrate the *almost* one year of hilarious sketches and performance development!

With the best show yet, with a bit of BEST OF, you can’t miss the one-year party. A star studded cast, championing talent and diversity on the D’Addario stage with some surprises thrown in – as always. Get Slappy and invest in your local artists with us!



Sketch Slap is produced by SoreSlap Theatre’s Rhian Jade and Papi Jeovani. The team believe a platform for marginalised and allied artists to develop new work publicly and host a space for belly laughs and support is vital in today’s theatre scene.

The show has developed over the year to become a safe LGBTQIA+ and Global Majority space to explore experience, culture and FUN together. With many featuring artists going on to write or perform elsewhere in the North East professionally.


Sketch Slap holds a public call out for work, offering employment to writers, performers, musicians, poets, theatre makers, technicians, and directors. The team then network together to create a show that is all comedy sketch, no person left behind. With full audiences at each show, we can’t wait to celebrate our one year *almost* anniversary with some knee slappin’ fun!
