Friday 3rd
Comedy

Porlock Village Hall proudly hosts a visit from the Living Spit Theatre Company with their comedy presentation, in conjunction with Take ARt,
"" The Six Wives of Henry Vlll. ""

Two Actors. Too Many Characters. Howard Coggins looks like Henry VIII. There's no escaping that. Stu McLoughlin doesn't look like any of the wives, but he's going to give it a go.

""After their previous self-funded historical drama
One Big Ego is savaged in the press, Howard and Stu are at their wits end.​
Then they hit on an idea for a show that could change everything....

But can two of the South West's favourite theatrical sons put aside their differences and make it through to the end without killing each other? ""

'The Six Wives of Henry VIII' was an undisputed hit at the Bristol Old Vic and with live original music, embroidery, Barbie dolls, silly songs and historical hysteria, this promises to be an ill-researched lesson in Tudor history you'll never forget.


Time: 7.30pm
Venue: Porlock Village Hall
Price: Early bird/concessions £8, on the day £10
