About: Tombstone Tales and Boothill Ballads

"Most of Tombstone's stories pass through here, one way and another. Like all roads lead to Rome. Lift a stone and listen – they'll whisper it to you. Ask nicely and they'll sit up and sing it for you. They may even get up and dance it for you.”

Expect fireside yarns, bar-room brag, Appalachian clog-dancing, shadow shows, makeshift puppetry, glee-club harmonies, vaudeville turns, parlour games and melodramatic skits.


Written and directed by Carl Heap
Music by Joe Townsend
Designed by Miriam Nabarro and Mila Sanders

£15/£10 Concessions (no concessions on Saturdays)
Tuesdays 'Pay What You Can' (subject to availability)

“What’s great about the show – besides the intelligent script and the inventiveness of the staging – is that it is totally involving in every way, from the storytelling to the audience participation…this is a show of real wonder” (The Guardian on ‘Jason and the Argonauts’ by beggarsbelief)
