Inspired by slapstick legends Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, the side-splitting duo of Chores is coming to Back to Ours. Two excitable brothers are definitely, probably, maybe, just about to, almost, at some stage, going to do the chores their mum has asked them to get on with… With skilled stunts and uproarious, interactive gags, and with very little spoken dialogue, children and their big people will find themselves on the edge of their seats and giggling until the chores are done…if they get done…
Relaxed performance – 2pm Wed 29th May. BSL interpreted performance – 7.30pm Thu 30th May.
Suitable for age 0+. Price £3 a ticket. Tickets from backtoours.co.uk, in person and over the phone at Hull Truck Theatre Box Office.
A mysterious travelling fairground gallops into town, with a sideshow hosted by The Great and Powerless Peter and his All-Powerful Troupe. Ride their High Horse, take up the reigns of power, and make your mark in The Scripture of Rules for Very Naughty Adults. Roll up, roll up! Your quill awaits…
