Who Do We Think We Are?

Thursday 28 – Saturday 30 July 2016
Directed by Rupert Creed

Tune in to the team at Hull based Radio Marvell for a comedy theatre show inspired by the golden age of radio broadcasting. With hyped up news and traffic reports, surreal features on Hull and its history, the classic drama serial ‘Toby Dick’, and a somewhat sexed up weather presenter, Radio Marvell invites you to turn up and tune in to a live comedy show with a distinctly Hull-grown flavour.  

Are We There Yet?

Thursday 28 – Saturday 30 June 2018
Directed by Rupert Creed

In their new show, Act III members explore the huge social changes they’ve lived through and how that’s played out in their personal lives.

Is the world as it could be? Is my life how it should be? On the road trip of life, who drew the map, who’s doing the driving, and what’s our final destination?

From the mundane to the miraculous, Are We There Yet? takes you on a touching, irreverent and highly unpredictable ride.
