New Wimbledon Theatre Studio
Introducing… our #FromTheFringe season 2019. For three weeks this June
each night will be something different. We’ve selected from the very
best submissions, a range of exciting theatre-makers and comedians to
preview their work before they take them off to various fringe festivals
and we cannot wait to introduce them to you.
But we are forgetting the most exciting part, see more, save more! The
more shows you choose to see, the more you save overall! Our Season
Saver rate allows you, in the same ticket order, to choose two different
shows and get £2 off each ticket, yet if you choose three of more
different shows you get a whopping £3 off per ticket. In most cases
that’s a saving of 20 -30% on ticket price.
For an inexpensive ticket price with multi-buy offers available, you can
afford to experiment and find a new favourite artist or style, all
whilst enjoying an ice cold beer from Wimbledon Brewery, the official
Beer of #FromTheFringe.
From stand-up to drama, children’s theatre to sketch comedy and musical
delights, they’ve got something for everyone! This season will see the
return of local favourites, comedy troupe Bad Clowns with a brand new
show Cult Classic, whilst Edinburgh Fringe sell-out In Loyal Company is
sure to exceed your dramatic expectations. Regarding comedians you can
see Ivo Graham, Tom Houghton, Kate Lucas and Simon Brodkin to name but a

THE TIGON AND THE LIGER
Based on the book by Keilly Swift
Adapted and directed by Pete Dowse
For ages: 3 to 7 years
Tyler the tigon was terribly rare. A big cat like him
isn't found everywhere. Unique from his ears to his tail to his tum, his
dad was a tiger, a lion his mum...
Chickenshed's Tales from the Shed team have been working with renowned
author Keilly Swift to bring her brilliant children's book, The Tigon
and the Liger to the Chickenshed stage.
Using Keilly's excellent rhyming verse and Tales from the Shed's
physical and visual style, the jungle will come to life as Tyler the
Tigon and Lyla the Liger meet, learn and play as they travel on their
journeys of self-discovery.
Told using many styles to engage all the senses including mime, rhyme,
sign and song alongside puppet characters and the unique Tales from the
Shed creation process, The Tigon and the Liger will leave you with a
warm feeling inside and the assertion that it takes all sorts to make a
Presented in Chickenshed's Rayne Theatre space, The Tigon and the Liger
is a big show for inquisitive minds.
The Tigon and the Liger will be on tour following the run at

ANDREA GIBSON: LORD OF THE BUTTERFLIES
Winner of the first ever Women of the World Poetry Slam in 2008, Andrea
Gibson remains one of the most captivating performers in the spoken word
poetry scene today. Known for pulling hearts out of chests to either
wrench or kiss, Gibson has authored four full-length collections of
poems, an illustrated book of their most memorable quotes (Take Me With
You, Penguin 2018), and has released seven beloved albums. Gibson
regularly sells out 500+ capacity standing room only venues to eager
audiences,mouthing along every word, further popularizing the art form
and creating a space for each person in the room to feel, and to heal.
In a fierce oscillation between activism and love, Andrea Gibson’s
newest literary triumph, released Nov 2018, ‘Lord of the Butterflies’ is
a masterful showcase from the renowned poet whose writing and
performances have captured the hearts of millions. An artful and nuanced
look at gender, romance, loss, and family, this is also a show of
protest. While rioting against gun violence, homophobia, and white
supremacy, Gibson celebrates gender expansion, queer love, and the will
to stay alive. Each emotion in ‘Lord of the Butterflies’ is deft and
delicate, resting within imagery heavy enough to sink the heart, while
giving the body wings to soar.
Andrea’s ‘Lord of The Butterflies’ tour will be coming to the UK in May
