Tonight we don our tallow and hemp.
We dress the fool and dance the maelstrom.
Horse head cabbage head hare head ass head.
Rabbit head apple head mop head last head.
We are men of straw and string.
You walk your way to find answer or end.
We will not provide.
We will only shimmer half formed, crackling in the torchlight.
We stretch, we move in and out of dream.
The star on the floor, the antlers behind the branches.
We are the Mummers and the Pappers.

Save South Street Arts Centre

Dear All,

Exiled Theatre have enjoyed the generous support of South Street Arts Centre in Reading for over ten years. It is a remarkable venue and a hub for the community. South Street Arts Centre nurtures new talent and has been a crucial element in producing new works that have won international awards. South Street Arts Centre has a rich and varied programme that acts as an antidote to the homogeneous fare served up by the Hexagon. It is vital that it be kept open so that Reading remains a vibrant, artistically diverse and exciting place to live.]

Since 2005 the following productions (many co-productions with Theale Green School) have included: The Sixth Form Festival 2005, Ship of Fools, The Simple Process of Alchemy, The Sixth Form Festival 2006, The Sixth Form Festival 2007, Hamlet, The Sixth Form Festival 2008, Loving Chopin, Local Legend (Artists in Residence Festival), Much Ado About Nuthin', The Sixth Form Festival 2009, Kill the Messenger, Funny Chekhov (Artists in Residence Festival), Deadman's Lane, The Sixth Form Festival 2010, Vampire Hospital, The Odyssey Festival, The Midwich Cuckoos, The Sixth Form Festival 2011, The James Campbell Comedy School, Poe (Artists in Residence Festival), Some Words with a Mummy, Night of the Living Dead (for Kids!), The Sixth Form Festival 2012, November the Fifth, Detention of Terror, The Sixth Form Festival 2013, Kill the Messenger, The Sixth Form Festival 2014, The Odyssey.

None of these productions would have been possible without South Street. Please support South Street by signing this petition here.

Thank you
Chris Lambert
