The Edelweiss Pirates


Germany 1942 - WWII rages into its fourth year. All internal opposition has been viciously silenced and the population blindly follow Adolf Hitler and his policies of total war and domination. Around Germany small groups of youth form themselves into societies.  Some just to listen and dance, others are becoming more aware that it is they, the youth of the country, who have to start resisting the Nazis, in whatever way they can.  One such group are The Edelweiss Pirates of Cologne.

Friday 13th to Sunday 15th February at Stiwdio Stepni, Ffwrnes




Birdy is a moving story of friendship and family, dreams and survival, exploring the effects of war, notions of sanity and one man's obsession with birds.

Inspired by the William Wharton novel, we are introduced to Birdy - confined in a World War 11 military psychiatric hospital, locked in silence and trapped in a bird persona. Led by his childhood friend and fellow casualty of war Al, we journey back through their early years as we relive their memories.

The Complete History of Comedy (Abridged)


Written and Directed by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor.

They’ve skewered history, the Bible and the world’s most celebrated playwright, now the Reduced Shakespeare Company tackles the subject it was born to reduce. From the high-brow to the low, The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) covers comedy through the ages, from Aristophanes and Shakespeare and Moliere (Is Moliere funny? Why not?) to Vaudeville and Charlie Chaplin to The Daily Show and Nick Clegg (Is Nick Clegg funny? Why not?)

Tickets to The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) are far more affordable than tickets to an amusement park, but you’ll come away with the same feeling of nausea and motion sickness. From cavemen telling “Rock Rock” jokes to Chris Rock and everything in-between, the bad boys of abridgment leave no joke untold as they deconstruct the entire history of comedy in 90 rollicking minutes.

“My cheeks still hurt from laughing so much. Way too funny.” Napa Valley Register

“A wild, wild ride! It’s funny. Really, really funny... And most of all, it’s really, really smart.” Cincinnati Enquirer
