Cathy Shiel has been a busy bunny, sorry, Squirrel this year. In addition to her superb range as an actor, Cathy is also an Early Years Specialist and an outstanding clown. This year she secured Arts Council Funding to develop her new piece of theatre: Cyril the Squirrel. Cyril the Squirrel is an exciting, silly and heart-warming new piece of children’s theatre about diversity, friendship and life in Woody Woodyland.The play tells the story of Cyril, a squirrel in turmoil, who is taunted and teased by some of the animal folk of woody woodland. The colour of his fur and his eating habits mean he is soon evicted from his tree by a sneaky weasel. Fortunately Rosie Red has a good idea – ting – should Cyril stand up for his Squirrel rights and can squirrels even stand up?! For information on the show and its forthcoming 2016 tour, click here.

Conor McKee Productions celebrates Shakespeare’s 450th birthday with a unique and thrilling production. In Shakespeare’s Deadly Sins an ensemble of four of the North’s finest actors takes you on an electrifying journey through gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, pride, lust and envy. Haunting vocal harmonies and searing stage combat are woven through the action as moments from less performed plays and sonnets encounter scenes from classic works Romeo & Juliet and Macbeth.
Adapted by critically acclaimed writer/producer Conor McKee and directed by two time MEN Theatre Award winner Wyllie Longmore, this performance will delight both Shakespeare connoisseurs and those new to his work.
