Hazel Monaghan, Rob Green, Siobhán Cannon-Brownlie & Alphabetti Theatre present a world premier of 
This Show Is Rubbish 

By Hazel Monaghan  

Directed by Siobhán Cannon-Brownlie 

Music and composition by Rob Green 

 THURS 28TH JULY – SAT 13TH AUG 2022 (including 11:30am Matinees on Saturdays) 

Plastic? Wake me up when it’s all over! 

Wave (yes, Wave) is only ten years old. The planet only has ten years left.  

 

Within this musical adventure is the story of a mother and daughter, and how the things that divide them could also be what unites them. 

With original new music, innovative eco-puppetry and original storytelling, This Show Is Rubbish gives children and their grown-ups a new way of protecting the world around them – not through obligation, but through imagination.

A charming comedy caper from critically acclaimed writer Alan Harris

When you're a small time drug dealer in Cardiff, it's tough living up to your family's expectations.

When Marc meets Lisa for the first time in years, things get even messier.

Lisa wants Marc. Only, Oggy wants Lisa.

Marc just wants to survive the day.

Who lives in those little green metal boxes at the end of the street? They’re everywhere. You must have seen them. At the bottom of most paths, sometimes black, sometimes grey.

Elsa doesn’t know why she’s never quite fit in. Perhaps it’s just the way she’s made?

Jacob Hawley: BUMP
 

SAT 11TH MARCH 2023

Men will literally do a 55-minute show about identity, social class and drinking olive oil, instead of going to therapy :/
