Have you ever kicked yourself for not being more quick-witted? Or replayed a conversation in your head that you wish had gone differently? This is about that; tales of sex and sassy comebacks, where things are turned on their head. Tragedy becomes beauty, regret becomes comedy and the mundane wonders and traumas of life get a good kicking.

Eleanor talks about sex, relationships, being young and the ups and downs of calling people ‘dicks’. She reflects on how her own life might have been different had she come up with all the right comebacks at all the right times.

Contains strong language and scenes of a sexual nature


Jan Martens: Ode to the Attempt (a solo for meself)

Jan Martens has been described as the most original and exciting Belgian choreographers of his generation. In this solo he provides insight into his way of working and living. He bares himself before you, inviting you to have a look in his head and his computer. Authenticity, manipulation, coolness, perfectionism, humour and melancholy form the extremes between which Martens moves creating a collage-like self-portrait that is simultaneously intriguing, mesmerising and entertaining.


£15, £8 concessions

Suitable for ages 12+, under 16s to be accompanied
