For Bertie Wister and his butler, Jooves, it was just a quick jaunt to NASA to help their American chums, but two years later and in orbit around Jupiter they discover an abandoned spaceship, and a dastardly plan to conquer Earth!
With influences ranging from ‘2001’, ‘Sunshine, Star Trek and Dr Who via ‘Alien’ this dynamic and ridiculous comic homage to space movies is dramatic, packed full of clichés and utterly silly from start to finish – a cartoon movie for the theatre!
Featuring a cast of two playing a cast of many – including… Aliens! All spacecraft played by kitchen utensils!

Your Bard! Begins as a TED Talk-style lecture that explores the controversy centered around the true authorship of Shakespeare’s plays. The modern-day investigation of history is interrupted by The Bard himself as he kicks the door off the hinges and defends his reputation. Come and meet the man himself and take the lid off a legend. He’ll tell you all about his family, what it’s like on tour and the glory days at the Globe. Intermingled with a few of his greatest hits – and maybe a sonnet or a song for the lovers.
