Not Too Tame: Early Doors
First night under new management. A brother and sister open up the family pub for the first time after it's been left to them by their mum. Nestle yourself amongst the regulars as they find their voices through love, loss, laughter and a pub quiz.
Not Too Tame are an ensemble company of actors who are firmly founded on the belief of 'Theatre for All'. Focusing specifically in creating work that breaks the boundaries of tame, polite theatre, we aim to engage those who feel that theatre isn't a place where they belong.
★★★★ (The Telegraph) 'The company's stated intention is to engage audiences who don't feel they belong in "tame, polite theatre", and they do this with great charm and energy.'
★★★★ (The Stage) 'There is not a single false note from the company - a celebration of love, life and, due to the show's own sparkle, theatre.
★★★★★ (Broadway Baby) 'This superb show… Early Doors is a beautiful, funny and moving ode to pubs and the people within them.'
★★★★ (The Times) 'Two pints of lager and a cracking little play!'
★★★★ (The Scotsman) 'A bravura site specific production. The young ensemble is engaging, the writing sharp and direction deft.'

A ruthless comedy about a hard-ass woman out for world domination in the form of a supermarket promotion. Group leader Tracy spearheads her sales team who aid and abet her in the lifelong quest for perfection on the shop floor. Tracy's done with middle management. Screw the price drops. Bollocks to the targets. Her faithful sidekicks help her to climb the supermarket ladder while Tracy's arch-enemy Lucy sticks her trolley in. Everyone thinks Lucy should do one. Finding incisive hilarity in the crushing boredom of bureaucratic life, Tracy is the office comedy for the millennial generation. Supermarkets are brutal.
