Watch The Selfish Giant at Home

Rent The Selfish Giant for a week for just £7!

The Giant is angry. He’s been away for a long time and returns to find children – children! – playing in his beautiful garden!

Every day after school, they come and run about, laughing and playing games under the blossom on his peach trees, listening to the delightful songs of the birds. So, he puts up a big wall and an even bigger KEEP OUT notice to put a stop to all that. Then winter seizes the garden in its icy fingers…  

Will its grip ever be broken?

Right Here Right Now: June

“Fast, funny, unpredictable and chaotic.
This show…should be added to every comedy fan’s calendar’
York Mix

York’s own comedy improv night is back with its own brand of sensational silliness based on audience suggestions- this time, on Zoom!

You come with the ideas and our merry band of improvisers instantly turn them into chaotic comedy to kickstart everyone’s week. It’s funny, it’s foolish, it’s fit for family audiences, and it really does make it up as it goes along.

Join us for music, mayhem and muppetry in an unforgettable and absolutely unrepeatable evening of joy-filled nonsense… it wouldn’t be the same without you!

Pericles, Prince of Tyre

a perilous voyage through the storms of life

A brave adventurer sets off to win the girl everyone is talking about.  Uncovering a sinister truth, Pericles weighs anchor and plunges into a rolling surge of events which leave him broken, gasping for life.

With its topical themes of abuse of power, desperate crossings of the Mediterranean and sex trafficking, this extraordinary saga sails uncomfortably close to home.  And yet there is a delightfully unexpected end to the journey to steer us into port.

Riding Lights, a York company with an enviable reputation for breathing new life into Shakespeare’s less well-known comedies, premieres a sparkling, streamlined version of this gripping story for the 2021 York International Shakespeare Festival online.
