Tonight!!!! 4pm and 7pm at the Unity Theatre

Tonight ‘Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf’ returns for another spell of frothbuggling family fun. This high energy physical theatre performance, suitable for ages 5-105, brings sheer bliss from beginning to end!

It takes you deep into the wood where you embark on a journey of love, loss and self-discovery.

Right from the beginning young and old are immersed into a frantic, energy fuelled production of dance, music, drama and storytelling.

You are invited into this enchanted wood and driven on a roller-coaster of emotions. You consider your own personal journey of unknown versus the safety and familiarity of the path and how irresistible straying can be.

The evenings experience will give you an insight as well as the tensions between mankind and nature.

This is a bold entertaining story of the well known classic tale, packing a punch that all will enjoy.
This production is for one night only but you can catch it later at the Whitby Hall Ellesmere Port 24th Jan and at St Helens Citadel 11th Feb. This is a great outing for all the family to enjoy.

But remember….. are the wolves really the villains in a world were the woodcutter is destroying the forest? And… Grandma the trophy hunter really sick?

Don’t stop to smell the flowers, or sing to the birds or climb a tree, remember these words……
and make your way tonight to Liverpool’s Unity Theatre. (0151 709 4988) Enjoy!

‘happy hour’ and the power of the smile!

An evening of fast paced comedy awaits you when you visit the Unity theatre this weekend!

Tmesis Theatre, the physical theatre that brought us ‘physical fest’ and the wildly acclaimed successful ‘That’s Amore’ production, is back with another Tmesis triumph.

This new comedy, explores our 21st century obsession with happiness and success.
Can we learn to be happy? And can our emotions be bought and sold?
The ‘happiness industry’ would have us think so…..

Enjoy this 60 minute non-stop performance for what will be an unforgettable night of feel-good comedy. Re-live the workers nightmare on Level 3 as they race against the clock to reach their targets of Smiley Faces.

This play is full of energy and great entertainment that keeps you engaged with their continuous vibrant on stage antics. Take a seat this weekend and awe in wonder as the consequences of the workers ‘happy hour’ actions become as tragic as they are hilarious.

This is a wickedly warming, brutally honest and heart-breaking raunchy exposition of a production, showing all the pitfalls of emotions intertwined with the often fractious friendships in the workplace.

Don’t miss this roller-coaster of a performance that leaves you questioning ‘happiness’ but captures the glimmer of ‘happiness’ and the potential that lies in all of us.

A play that boasts explosive action, exploring power, desire and love…..a play with certainly plenty of action!
