WAXA BELTA HELTA SKELTA
Theatre maker and performance artist Serena Ramsey is back with her new solo show Waxa Belta Helta Skelta a surreal look at abandonment, cults and Mammy issues.
Combining live soundscapes, playful story telling, dark humour and experimental electro-music for support, this absurd true story engulfs us in the explosive world of one young Geordie girl with a missing mum, but plenty of pasties.
On a journey to understand why her mam left to join a cult, this true story uses witch-craft, dance numbers, sausage rolls and lots of Newcastle Brown Ale to take the audience on her journey of acceptance.
With a voice ready to share this personal experience, Ramsey brings emotions to the stage that will resonate heavily with anyone who has ever experienced loss, love and the need for answers. With her unique brand of comedic storytelling, drawing on clown influences, the audience will leave laughing, crying and craving a sausage roll.

NIGHT ON BOOB MOUNTAIN
Night on Boob Mountain is a surreal and hilarious teenage horror story set on the island of Teendom. Jamie, Nora and Olive wash up on an island and arrive hopeful for the next chapter of their life... but what appeared as a place for innocent self-discovery descends into savage competition as they navigate the treacherous wasteland. Teendom isn’t as glamorous as they thought it would be. It’s sticky, sweaty and the boys are disappointingly weedy. But worse than that,
they discover that the island is governed by a demonic spirit “Puberty” who infiltrates their friendships as the race to become ultimate teen descends into cut throat competition.
We have received ACE funding for this project and will be developing it in summer with The Albany, Deptford.
Girl World is a pop-tastic, musical playground where best friends wreak anarchy, hilarity and imagination.
But when Tilly thinks the unthinkable and asks, “is there anybody out there?” Girl World descends into a foulmouthed, sex-obsessed battleground with both girls vying for dominance against each other when they discover there is a hole in their world…
Expect laughter, love songs and brutal wrestling on a journey of genuine friendship between two girls who are growing up.
