Railway Children

 From: May 8, 2023, till May 13, 2023,

This story of a prosperous Edwardian family – mother and three children – forced into near-penury in the rural north of England, captures the anxieties and exhilarations of childhood with great tenderness and insight. 

This much-loved literary classic comes to the Wharf stage and is not to be missed! Adults and children will be enthralled by the heartwarming story and the clever use of imaginative theatricality.

Jack Jordan

 From: May 20, 2023, till May 20, 2023,

A 75-minute chaotic journey through the minds of two dudes; Jack & Jordan, who are actors – nay, artists! And professional ones at that. Expect appearances from imaginary girlfriends, a confused Yorkshireman & the mysterious Pine Nut (what are those?) as Jack & Jordan go full silly. And do some really good acting. 

Obviously. In real life, Jack Stringer and Jordan Cottle are actors, theatre-makers and silly-boys based in Bristol and Weston-Super-Mare. 
They’ve trained & collaborated together for over a decade, with achievements including 5 star sell-out original shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, founding & running a successful emerging artists cabaret, and also Jack has a cycling proficiency certificate (level two).

Having A Baby

 From: May 26, 2023, till May 27, 2023,

Written & Performed by Lou Cox 

The journey to motherhood is fraught with the most painful and awkward moments for all women. This comedic and brutally honest one woman show takes the audience on an emotional and at times highly entertaining rollercoaster. From morning sickness to hypno-birthing classes to labour, you won’t find this stuff in the pregnancy books! No holds barred; get ready for a whirlwind of witty anecdotes and graphic storytelling with an ending no mother could ever imagine. 

This show is not for the faint hearted!
