Tortoise vs Hare
Barry Hare, Wrington running champ. Fit, popular and, above all, fast.
Toby ‘Tortoise’ Gollop, eater of doughnuts. Look up ‘relaxed’ in the dictionary and you’ll see his picture.
Two very different men.
One running club, and the race to end all races.
Told entirely in rhyme and song, this promises to be an epic tale of romance, redemption and rural running rivalry that you’ll never forget.
‘World-class actors at the top of their game” The FTR on ‘One Man & His Cow’
“The best 100-minute comedy show outside the Edinburgh Festival” Western Daily Press on ‘The Six Wives of Henry VIII”
“This is a feel good, clever and uplifting comedy and the joyful spirit of this work will appeal to a wide audience.” Bristol Post on ‘The Fabulous Bacon Boys’
