One crap town. Two funny women. Ten daft characters. Lots of laughs...
When a crap Northern town starts to get even crapper – things go wrong for everyone, including: sex mad supermarket shelf stacker Tracey and her miserable colleague Donna. Pepsi and Lulu, excitable receptionist 'frenemies' who lick Weetabix for lunch to lose weight. Allergic, dog phobic Val, her cheese loving girlfriend Kay and ranty mum Maureen who hates Clare Balding. Come and meet these characters and many more, in a fast paced, funny tale of a city that needs to be saved. But can this lot do it?

For the last three and a half years Sharp Teeth Theatre have been bringing together theatre, storytelling, poetry and music to create a night of riotous fun. They’ve had raps about stolen bikes, poems about cottaging, performances from drag kings, new writing about women who climb the shard, and improvised storytelling about Lance Armstrong getting lost in a bathtub of meat, amongst many other things.
This Monday feature storyteller Wilf Merttens, theatre from Oliver De Rohan, music from Catherine Embleton and resident sketch troop Darcy, Rooke and Hinds.

Six awkward spelling champions learn that winning (and losing) isn't everything.
An eclectic group of six mid-pubescent children vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime.

Six spellers enter; one speller Wins! At least the losers get a juice box.
