Finding Joy

Vamos Theatre

Danny, a teenage dabbler in petty crime, starts to care for Joy, whose nocturnal wanderings and forgetfulness worry her family. The show brilliantly conveys her fear on finding herself alone, in her nightie, in a busy street. It also conjures up her past, in particular during the Blitz. It’s an unconventional companionship between Joy and Danny, who find love and laughter against the odds.

“Finding Joy” is an intensely emotional and enjoyable show.

We Are Brontë

Publick Transport

We Are Brontë is a piece of hilarious visual theatre inspired by the real and imaginary worlds of Yorkshire’s literary siblings, presented in Publick Transport’s irreverent style. Physical theatre collides with stand-up, clowning and improvisationas two performers deconstruct Gothic themes of love, madness, repression and revenge. Part play, part enquiry into the act of putting on a play, this is no ordinary Brontë adaptation.
