How to Hug Trees & Other Secrets (2006)

There are a few things Jonas Mudge can’t imagine doing in a million years. Selling his farm and hugging trees are definitely among them…

Then out of the woods one night comes the mysterious GW in a waft of moss and a sparkle of dew, and Jonas is whisked off to a new life in which he might try anything, however daft.

But neither of them has counted on the arrival of Barnstaple Chuckleberry, lover of pies, cash and the sound of his own voice, and certainly no hugger of trees.

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.
