Following a sell-out run in 2016 at Alphabetti Theatre and winning the British Theatre Guide 2016 Experimenting With Form Award, Bacon Knees & Sausage Fingers is back at the venue from Friday 1st-Saturday 23rd February.

Arising out of an Alphabetti Theatre 24 Hour Challenge back in May 2015, written and performed by Gary Kitching and Steve Byron, and directed by Ali Pritchard, the bizarre tale explores a chance encounter between two social outsiders and their developing friendship against the backdrop of a slightly historically questionable ‘fact’ about the High Level Bridge being closed in 1849 to form a dog track.

In addition to the play’s run, and following the main show, a series of ‘…reacts to’ events will also take place, in which comedians, musicians and performers come up with their reactions to the play and the themes presented. Join Mr Shindig, aka comedians Hal Branson and Joby Mageean, on Friday 1st; musician and poet Diji Solanke from Tuesday 5th-Friday 8th; theatre company Bonnie & The Bonnettes from Tuesday 12th-Friday 15th and Twisting Ducks theatre company from Tuesday 19th-Thursday 21st February.

The show deals with extremely difficult issues throughout, and this highly entertaining and yet disturbing work comes with an age recommendation of 14+ and a trigger warning.
