Elton and his new friend are in deep trouble... Though they barely know each other, they've got mixed up together in a nasty incident which has put someone in hospital. Now the powers that be will decide who is to blame, and their conclusion could change the course of the boys' lives forever. It's a lot to face up to when you're only nine years old. Play Time is a fast-paced, colourful, outrageous, heartwarming and hilarious two-hander from the award-winning Of Mice Theatre. **** FRINGE GURU - "A sophisticated and well-worked comedy, performed with panache and irresistible warmth. Go see it; you'll have fun."

'Time Please' is a darkly-comic play, set in a run-down pub in a deprived neighbourhood. The grimness offset by the misplaced optimism of barman Steve and the epic sarcasm of his feisty wife, Cath. Enter Keith Goodman, shambolic and drunk, with a planet-size chip on his shoulder. Off his head on booze and pills, he's determined the world should know his woes. Chock-full of wild conspiracy theories, he has hatched a plan to get his story heard, and so begins the lock-in like no other.

A hidden role game a la Secret Hitler or The Resistance, Werewolf is a classic of deduction and bluffing. Players are either werewolves or villagers. Your goal? Wolves must kill villagers; villagers must kill wolves.
Werewolf is traditionally played with mates in a living room, but Jon Gracey off of sketch tits The Beta Males (***** Three Weeks/Broadway Baby/Spoonfed/Fringe Guru/Skinny/Time Out) has created a theatrical gaming experience like no other.
Come and participate in a huge, live extravaganza as player or spectator – some of YOU will be playing on stage, fighting for your lives!

Even before she came to Belton, Minty had known she was a witch, or something very much like it. When she uncovers a time portal (the ‘Moondial’ in the grounds of Belton House) she meets Tom the sickly kitchen boy, and Sarah, a girl whose family think her birthmark makes her the ‘Devil's child’. Ghosts, an evil governess, the terrifying Miss Raven and time itself must be overcome to save the children of the past. Based on the best-selling children's book, from a Brighton Fringe Award-winning company, ‘Moondial’ is a creepy, chilling and uplifting play for adults and children alike.
