A Little Commedia Chaos

Several fun, fast and crazy sketches brought to you by a hilarious cast of actors.

The sketches are inspired by classic Commedia Dell’ Arte routines and are based on sketches by Barry Grantham and the Scala commedia scenarios.

The cast draws on methods from Jacques Lecoq, Stanley Allen Sherman and Dario Fo, to create these slap stick scenes that will have you crying with laughter: For a show full of disturbing doctors, angry misers , sexy lovers, naughty servants and crazy clowns, don’t miss this madness.

Our Lords and Masters In Their Human Form

Eight public figures find themselves in a sealed room, the glassy eye of a camera ready to capture their every word. There’s no room for slip-ups and there’s no room for arguing – they must work together. However a mysterious voice is working against them.


A workshop production, adapted from the novel by Irvine Welsh

Before Trainspotting came Skagboys.
Mark Renton has it all: he’s young, has a pretty girlfriend, a place at university and a bright future. But along with his friends; the unemployed Spud, the scamming Sick Boy and the psychotic Frank Begbie, they struggle to belong in the early 1980s. As they spin more out of control, their only way out is heroin, stealing and violence, and not one of them will ever be the same again.
Set in Scotland during one of the most turbulent decades in British memory, Skagboys explores the themes of lad culture, young people facing life after university, unemployment, and the extremes to which they go to escape.

Exeter Northcott Theatre and Le Navet Bete's Dick Whittington artwork. Background: a foggy panorama photo of the city of London, with iconic buildings such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, and St Paul's Cathedral. The cityscape is washed over with a burgundy haze. Foreground: A black and white cat (black body, white neck collar, white paws) looks towards the cityscape and we see them in near silhouette. They are stood on a yellow-brick path, with green grassy hills either side of them. On the hills, grey rats with large red eyes. On the left hand side of the cat, a rat holds a stereotypical hobo sack on a stick. At the top of the artwork, gold text reads: 'Exeter Northcott Theatre and Le Navet Bete present Dick Whittington.' Another group of rats with large red eyes are playing around the letters in 'Dick Whittington'. A cat paw icon replaces the dot on top of the letter 'I' in 'Dick', and a block of cheese replaces the dot on top of the second letter 'I' in 'Whittington.
