Hand to Mouth Theatre

Equally loved by adults and children, Hand To Mouth Theatre is Martin Bridle and Su Eaton have been intriguing and entertaining children and adults in schools, theatres, and at festivals and celebrations around the UK and abroad since 1980, and are guaranteed to deliver a thoughtful, witty and enchanting performance.

This year they are will be performing Piggery Jokery and the Box of Mechanical Delights!:

The Box of Mechanical Delights: Steampunk and clockwork in style, this is a portable coin-operated box which opens to reveal small “mechanical” characters who go through a series of witty and surreal sequences.

“Piggery Jokery” is a whimsical perambulation through the seasons, touching on the circular nature of time, as told by the Green Man and his hurdy-gurdy playing Droning Crone and their troupe of rag-bag characters. There is plenty of laughter along the way as the old farmer tends his land and fattens his pig for the winter. It is both moving and entertaining with resonances of ancient pagan ritual and dark humour.
