In January 2019 Alphabetti Theatre and The Worriers collaborate again with the support of Arts Council to bring back critically acclaimed play Bacon Knees and Sausage Fingers. Originally written and performed in 2016, this hilarious, heart-warming, and harrowing play tells the story of two social outsiders who meet on the High-Level bridge in Newcastle. One is dressed in vest and pants with bacon attached to his knees and the other has a small dog and an old suitcase. The play explores difference, and the challenges people with difference have to deal with because of stigmatisation from society. Writer/performers Gary Kitching and Steve Byron, with director Ali Pritchard, would like to share five things to count on one hand that might make Bacon Knees and Sausage Fingers happy.

On the baby finger:
A monkey called Malcolm.

On the Ring Finger:
Gail Hodge.

On the Index Finger:
3 Planet of The Apes Comics.

On the Second Finger:
Dog Clocks.

And on the Thumb:
A Friend.

Bacon Knees and Sausage Fingers opens at Alphabetti Theatre on Friday 1st February and runs till Saturday 23rd February excluding Sundays and Mondays. Response pieces will be performed throughout the run by Mr Shindig Comedy, poet & musician Diji Solanke, Bonnie & The Bonnettes and The Twisting Ducks. The show will be Pay What You Feel as Alphabetti Theatre believes great theatre should be affordable to everyone regardless of income. Tickets should be booked here.

We look forward to you meeting Bacon Knees and Sausage Fingers. Once you get to know them you will never forget them.
