It was cold. It was dark. It was almost certainly snowing…

Brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm are about to publish the final volume of what will become the greatest ever collection of fairy tales.

But on the eve of their greatest triumph, a shadowy figure from their past lets it be known he intends to collect an old debt.

Now their sister Lotte has to travel deep into the Fairy Tale Kingdom and confront a great evil in order to save her beloved older brothers.

Is our heroine in grave danger? Yes.

From what? Lot’s of things.

Will she make it back alive? We can’t tell you.

Having previously thrilled audiences with hit shows The Thing That Came From Over There and What The Dickens, Gonzo Moose are back with a comedy fairy tale adventure bursting with physical comedy, absurd jokes and magical illusion.

Stephen K Amos: Everyman @ Arlington Arts
Dec 6 @ 8:00 pm

It’s easy to feel angry when mad talking heads and evil officials are looking for any slight difference of opinion to plough open and exploit. We need an everyman to bring people together using the most powerful tool we have: comedy. We need Stephen K Amos.

He’s on a mission to bring about world peace. Or, to at least bring about an evening of peace, one venue at a time. In an age when arguments are started over everything from politics to bendy straws, Stephen is rising above the anger to remind us of what we have in common.

Bringing achingly funny anecdotes, hilarious takes on the everyday and his infectious charm, Stephen K Amos will warm your cold, stiffened hearts. Join together with your fellow man and experience the universal language of laughter.

“Comedy at its purest and richest form.” The Advertiser  ★★★★★

“Amos has the sort of commanding presence and confidence that could only have come from years of working the circuit.”  Arts Hub ★★★★

Sam Avery: Toddlergeddon @ Arlington Arts
Mar 19 @ 8:00 pm

The time is 4.17pm.
No-one is dressed yet.
Civilisation has collapsed.
Law and order has broken down.
The kids are high on sugar.
The adults have lost control.
Every conversation is an argument.
The coffee has run out.
A child scribbles on the wall.
Someone spills a drink.
Everyone is shouting.
This is Toddlergeddon.

Join award-winning comedian and bestselling author Sam Avery (AKA The Learner Parent) for an evening of hilarious stand up, brand new for 2020. How do you raise a toddler with more attitude than Kanye West? Can you negotiate effectively with a pre-schooler who knows you’re clueless? And will any of us survive Toddlergeddon?
