They have previously visited The Old Market with their shows The Animals and Children Took to the Streets, Golem, and most recently, ROOTS.

"They have a unique style all of their own, and this new show is perfect for both returning fans of the company and new audiences alike. 

"This will be a flagship show for our venue, and we intend to go all out. What does that mean? There's only one way to find out – we'll see you there!"
