at the East Riding Theatre

All performances were sold out, but we plan revivals there and/or a tour of East Riding villages.

 In Spring 2015 and Autumn 2016

we toured with Patrick Garland’s

Brief Lives

a highly amusing one-man show which follows a day in the life of


John Aubrey

the seventeenth century diarist

See audience reaction at

“Everything is here – wit, farce, tragedy, pathos – often bawdy, frequently uproariously funny. A truly delightful entertainment.”The Guardian


Old John Aubrey takes his audience by the hand and, with a twinkle in his eye, leads you through a day late in his life, launching into wicked tales.  He regales you with tales of his contemporaries – Oliver Cromwell, Charles II, Nell Gwyn – and stories gleaned as a child from folk who knew the likes of Shakespeare, Queen Elizabeth, Sir Walter Raleigh. By turns he is a stand-up comic, a philosopher, a lodger in a garret room suffering crying babies and other noisy co-tenants. Once he starts speaking to you he is like the Ancient Mariner – you cannot choose but hear.

and the East Riding of Yorkshire Council

 A fireside entertainment of tales to chase away the last of Winter

 Readings and semi-dramatisations,

including a guest appearance from the past
