17 February - 8 March, London

Theatre that will touch your heart, scuff your emotions.

Bold, brassy and abrasive, Spare Tyre’s Scratches will immerse you into a world of hilarity and humanity.

Spare Tyre’s Associates join forces with our Company of Artists showcasing their stories, imaginations and physicalities through spoken word, song, dance, movement and film.

Unravel the farcical fantasies of life.

Laughter, Wine and Sex is the Best Medicine memories of a retired nurse: from bathing patients to drinking wine on duty to being confronted by French prostitutes; a reflection of a life dedicated to helping others, and of the generosity of spirit that we all have. This solo performance incorporates physical theatre and song.

Two Bodies, two people, two stories, two journeys - how different lives connect, interact and collide.

Women, Word and Film investigates themes of childhood, adolescence and adult life unravelling love and language. This performance is based on "Salome" taken from The World's Wife by Carol Ann Duffy published by Picador at £8.99 © 1999, Carol Ann Duffy.

The Fortune Teller All is silent. Sometimes our lives are real, sometimes imagined. Which one of us feels, hears, sees everything? The Fortune Teller explores the world of confusion, awe and wonder.
