Cheese-Badger Presents…The Epic Of Hairy Dave – Free (Cheese-Badger / Laughing Horse Free Festival)

By | Published on Sunday 21 August 2011

With the voice of an old Yorkshireman, the wild-eyed, bow-tied Sir Henry Cheese-Badger recounts the tale of Hairy Dave, a saviour of sorts who comes to a world of fast-food and tries to make a difference. Cheese-Badger darts about the stage, a white shirt billowing from a scrawny waist, absolutely captivating in his poetic story-telling style. The hour-long poem is complex and made of many parts, so it’s understandable that every now and then our frantic storyteller needs a prompt or two from his waxen butler Rover — perhaps later in the run these will disappear altogether. One to take your auntie to, as long as she likes storms of sprouts and government legislation against beards.

Laughing Horse at The Beehive Inn, 11 – 28 Aug (not 17, 24), 12.10pm (1.05pm), free, fpp58.
