About the shows:

Matthew Highton - Insufficient Memory

After his gran got dementia (funny start) Matthew Highton sought to make sense of the news to figure out what makes us US and if it even matters in the end? Using his own life to chart how his rougher edges in formative years growing up in Oldham led to a life performing, he explores the notion whether we would be an entirely different person if we grew up even half a mile away? Highton’s storytelling draws you in with honesty and flair, delivered with a strong unique voice. Joy, silliness, anarchy, revelation, shame, reflection and probably some bits that make you go ‘awwww’, the lovable raconteur will leave you appreciating the here and now, even in it’s darkest corners.

‘Highton has the storyteller’s gif’ ★★★★ Chortle

‘Highton is captivating. His story is one you’ll want to listen to until the end.’★★★★ Adelaide Now

‘Fascinating in parts, moving in others, and there's plenty to laugh at too.’ Critic’s Choice Time Out London

'Warm, intelligent and beautifully written' List

‘Wonderful’ The Guardian

‘Disorientating, bizarre and rather brilliant.’ ★★★★ Broadway Baby

Richard Soames - Let’s Make a Movie

One man. One hour. One second-hand camcorder. Let’s Make a Movie.

Co-writer/performer of The Edinburgh Fringe Best Newcomer Award Nominated show The Story Beast and star of Chortle Award Nominated Fringe favourites The Beta Males, Richard has 60 minutes to make a movie and he needs your help. Having misspent his childhood with his brother making uniquely exhilarating home movies, like their painstaking shot-for-shot remake of The Matrix, to their just painstaking Snakes in a Car, his younger brother’s now all grown-wife-proper-job-and-mortgaged-up and Richard’s on his own. But instead of six to eight weeks on a Studio lot, making an actual Blockbuster, he’s booked an hour in a purple shipping container just off Bristo Square. Armed with a state of the art handycam from 2003, some questionable filmmaking techniques and actual archive footage from his old home videos, Richard will do anything and everything it takes (mostly everything) to make a fully-formed movie in one hour.

That’s right, we will actually do this.

Together, we're making a movie!
