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.
Each night features four acts, recently including Spindle Ensemble, Malaika Kegode, Ellie Showering, Craft-D, Madeline Shann, Lucy Harrington, Claire Murphy, Katie Storer, and more – the best of local and not so local talent.
Check out line-ups online, and come on down for an evening of joyous art, like a variety show, but better, better, better!

OLIVER DE ROHAN - CAPTAIN MOONLITE: THE QUEER HISTORY OF AUSTRALIA'S GAY BUSHRANGER
It’s 1868 and the Victorian Gold Rush has paid off all of Britain’s foreign debts. The city of Melbourne is on track to be the richest in the world. Andrew Scott, alias Captain Moonlite, has come for his share.
Award winning theatre maker Oliver de Rohan (The Road That Wasn’t There, This is Where We Live) marks his return to the UK with his brand new show about the extraordinary true story of Captain Moonlite. Encompassing bank robberies, prison breaks, naval chases, shootouts, and transgressive love, this tale of high adventure is too good to miss.
“Skilful narrative story telling is an art in itself and de Rohan is as good as it gets.”
