Deep Down Cowboys (2011)

For 5-11 year olds. By Daniel Jamieson.

Somewhere a hundred fathoms deep a Russian submarine chugs through the ocean. It’s hard living on a submarine. You’re cooped up night and day for months on end in a three hundred foot long, thirty foot wide, three-storey tin can. So when Nikolai moseys on board with his secret stash of Westerns the crew are enthralled – wide open prairies, cowboys, ten-gallon hats and horses called Trigger. They have to keep it quiet, mind, the boss hates all things American…. But in the dead of night those Russians wear Stetsons, drawl like John Wayne and stage rodeos, yeehaw! And when there’s big trouble onboard, Nikolai and his friends, The Magnificent Three, are there to save the day!

A cracking tale of riding into the sunset and finding freedom.

Adapted by Daniel Jamison

A magical tale of big ideas and sky-high courage...

Odd ideas are floating around Paul’s street; Mabel’s brother hides under a brown paper bag and Clarence the poodle thinks he can fly. But Paul has the oddest idea of all. He thinks that the moon is a hole in the sky and he’s going to climb into it...

A fantastical story by David Almond, award-winning writer of Skellig and My Dad’s A Birdman.

Table Mates

A new play by Daniel Jamieson

Three cooks, three very different lives. Each course tells a story.

Six O’clock comes and three weary workers return to their cosy abode. With the barest of hellos, they take off their coats and put on their chefs whites. They are Starter, Main and Pudding and each night, without fail, they cook each other a delicious meal. Starter makes starter, Main makes main and Pudding makes pudding.

They soon set to work in the kitchen, dancing round each other like Morecambe and Wise making breakfast. Starter fashions an exquisite nibble of microscopic, but mouthwatering delight. Main conjures a dish that carries her heart home on a whiff of basil and lime. Pudding steams a duff the size of a football, so no-one need fear going hungry. Three cooks, three very different lives. Each course tells a story.

Theatre Alibi combine vivid storytelling, live music and a good old boogie to bring this funny and creative household to life.
