Life-sized puppets to visit Theatre

Sparkle and Dark Theatre Company visits the Theatre on the evening of Thursday 23 January, as part of a national tour. Using stunning life-sized puppetry and original live music, Killing Roger explores the sensitive and important issue of assisted dying. Inspired by author LW Illsley’s personal experiences of Hodgkin’s disease and the care industry, it tells the moving and poignant tale of two unlikely friends at opposite ends of their lives. First produced with Little Angel Theatre, it has enjoyed five star runs in Edinburgh and London and recognition from the Wellcome Trust and the Mason Institute. Tickets are also available for the A2 Theatre Studies evenings on 30 & 31 January when students give their final, externally assessed performances. For tickets, please call 01730 711511 or email
