Henry Normal: A Normal Universe
Supported by Bridie Squires and Panya Banjoko
The world premiere of a show about the universe and everything that surrounds it. What we know, what we think we know and what we are just making up as we go along. Stories, jokes, poems and a slide show from Nottingham’s own friendly neighbourhood poet, writer, TV and film producer.
