TWO stunning comedy shows in one hilarious evening. Award winners at the Edinburgh fringe and Brighton fringe bring their comedy masterclasses on a national tour.
SCI-FI?: The show follows the intergalactic journey of the unlikeliest of heroes, happy-go-lucky farmer Charlie Sprog. At a time where the ancient planet of Plutopia rules the galaxy, Charlie is dragged from his quiet home planet and given one very simple mission: SAVE THE UNIVERSE FROM TOTAL DESTRUCTION. Accompanied by an inter-cosmic live score like no other, the Sleeping Trees invite you to join them on a journey into the deep and infinite unknown. So strap on your helmets, jump into your space suits, complete the necessary six years of training required by NASA to fly into space.
WESTERN?: The show follows unlikely hero Harry Sudds as a simple trip to the town bank quickly descends into the worst day of his life. Before he knows it he's confronted by native Indians, talking wasps and one of the most majestic tumbleweeds ever seen in the west. With another rip roaring live score, The Sleeping Trees bring their fast, physical and farcical comic style to one of the most well loved film genres of all time
Tickets £9/£7.50 for one show, £15/12 for both shows – people coming to both get free interval hot drink/soft drink.
