Heads and Tales in association with the Green Art Project present :

The Big Recycled Story Show!

The greenest show in town! There are only seven basic plots – and frankly, they all got used already. So we got 'em out of the bin, dusted 'em off, cut 'em up, pulped 'em, rearranged 'em – and lo and behold – the Recycled Story Show was born.

Marvel as Dick Whittington's Cat spills the beans, tabloid style! Take a journey in old tickets – destination unknown! Meet the men who proposed the emperor's new loans! Take part in our Big Recycled Story, and meet the Lost Soles who live amongst old clothes.

Heads & Tales make live fiction, and interactive literature.

Suitable for Adults and Children over ten

Tickets cost £3 adults, £2 children.

For Further Information please contact Heads and Tales
