FUP
Tuesday 9 - Saturday 13 October 2018
Liverpool Everyman Theatre
The Santee family are unconventional, to say the least.

100-year-old Grandaddy Jake and his enormous grandson Tiny live life on the fringes, drinking whisky, building fences, boasting of immortality. But then, Fup arrives – an ass-kicking, web-footed, feathery sonofagun. See, Fup is a duck. A very big duck. A very big duck indeed...And she is going to change their world forever.

FUP is a big-hearted, uproarious modern fable about family, love and nature set in a weird and wild Cornwall.

Featuring live, foot-stomping music, quacking puppetry and Kneehigh’s infamous eccentricity and charm, FUP is a story like no other.

The Unreturning
Tuesday 16 - Saturday 20 October 2018
Liverpool Everyman Theatre
A new play by Anna Jordan
I want to return to my home.

A British Northern Coastal town. Three young men are coming home from war. Their stories, set at different times over the last 100 years, are beautifully interwoven in this compelling new play by Anna Jordan (Yen – Royal Court Theatre, Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting 2013).

Directed by Neil Bettles (Associate Director of Frantic Assembly) and featuring Frantic’s celebrated physicality, The Unreturning explores the profound effect that war has on young lives, and asks - what does coming home really mean? What is home? And when experience has shattered you into a million pieces, will home help to put you together again, or treat you as an ugly truth it does not want to confront?

A Frantic Assembly and Theatre Royal Plymouth Production
