Three Sat Under The Banyan Tree
Saturday 16 February, noon and 3pm at The Curve
A Tara Arts and Polka Theatre production, by Shamser Sinha. Near the foothills of the Himalayas, three orphans open a magical book under a Banyan tree. They were told the book wouldn't give them answers but they'd learn from it, so they watch as three stories of the forest rise from the pages. Stories of headstrong crows, a mongoose who wants a family, and a brave lion come vibrantly to life, with masks, movement and music.
Recommended for children aged 7-12. Tickets £5 (child) /£6 (adult) / £20 (family).

Beowulf is an interactive performance where each show is unique, guided by your choices. Accompanied by an evocative soundscape, explore the world of a legendary story from our ancient past…without leaving your seat. Because we still need stories about heroes. Because there are still monsters that lurk in the dark.
Recommended for audiences interested in storytelling; fans of Game of Thrones, The Hobbit / Lord of the Rings; people who like games; undergraduate and A-Level students (theatre / performance students or English students).
Tickets £9 early bird / £12 full price.
A Super Happy Story About Feeling Super Sad
Saturday 16 March, 7.30pm at The Curve
A hilarious cabaret musical about depression that explains, sings and throws glitter about how it’s OK not to be OK. Sally’s a happy person. She doesn’t let little things get her down and she almost never cries. But she’s got an illness. It makes her feel like she isn’t the person she wants to be, but she doesn’t want anyone to know about it. It’s joyful, buoyant, gleeful, slightly silly, sugar coated, unrelenting and completely super happy! (Except for all the bits about depression).
Tickets £10 adult / £35 group of 4.
