Dates & Times
There are currently no events listed for this show.

Written and performed by the critically acclaimed Francesca Millican-Slater, this amusing and gripping collection of short, quirky tales is reminiscent of Roald Dahl's stories for adults. 

Dreamlike and darkly humorous, this live, late night radio show is inspired by the legendary radio shows of Ronnie Wood and Iggy Pop and includes tales of everything from love and obsession to technology and disconnection. Not to mention pork pies.

Having played to rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, don't miss this unforgettable new production from one of the country's most exciting performers, which shows that everyone has a story.

Age Recommendation: 16+. Please note that this production contains some mild swearing and sexual references.
