Edinburgh Festival Double Bill presented by The Nottingham New Theatre.
For a week in May 1854, Nottingham audiences flocked to hear of one man's extraordinary escape from slavery to freedom. Henry 'Box' Brown – a formerly enslaved African American – wrote himself into the history books when he posted himself in a box.
Henry employs his normal mix of poetry, true stories and daft jokes on an adventure to find our place in this apparent chaos.

Somewhere, on a nowhere road, just past adrift and before you reach astray, you’ll find two lost souls. Running. Running with a thing. A thing mislaid. A thing without a flock, looking for a place to belong.
Kai and Gerda had been friends for as long as they could remember. Day followed day, always the same, until in a whirl of magic and deception, splinters of a magical broken mirror blow in the wind, freezing hearts and changing everything!
This stunning, non-verbal, visual adventure uses puppetry, movement, trapeze, and live music to tell the traditional tale of four animals put to pasture: a donkey; a cat; a cockerel and a dog.
Nye Bevan's beautiful baby is 70 this year, but will she make a ton? A decade of austerity with a Brexit cherry on top has brought her to her knees.
You’re invited to a completely different wedding celebration where the bride, groom, best man and bridesmaids are world-class dancers and audience members are the wedding guests.
