Out There on Fried Meat Ridge Rd. – The White Bear Theatre £15/12 (17 Jan – 4 Feb)
Mitchell answers an ad for a roommate and finds himself in a backwoods West Virginia motel with JD, an affable hillbilly of mysterious origins.

Hopeless – but for the power of dance…?

Fantastic Mr Fox – Hammersmith Lyric £15 (25 Jan – 19 Feb)
Mr Fox is smart, clever and rather fantastic, but he doesn’t realise how determined the farmers are to get revenge. Can he hatch a plan to save his family and friends? Can they outrun the diggers and outsmart the farmers? And can Rabbit shut up long enough not to give the game away?
Hearing Things – Clapham Omnibus £12/10 (31 Jan – 4 Feb)

On The Horizon
Blood & Bone – The Vaults £12 (15-19 Feb)
Part political satire, part pixar movie, Blood & Bone is a dark and cheeky adult puppet show. Combining puppets, puns & poor taste to guarantee you’ll soil yourself. After all: Life’s a prick.
This Is Not Culturally Specific – The Vaults £12 (15-19 Feb)
This Is Not Culturally Significant is an intense and darkly comic one-man show which unveils the bizarre, compulsive and eccentric nature of humanity. Over ten characters are portrayed; from a pathologically lying classics professor to a despondent American porn star on the brink of her retirement.
