About the {{offerTypeLabel(offer)}}

Nature Knows Best is a compilation of three short comedies, written by Devonshire playwright Nick Discombe. The performance shows a day in the life of three different animal couplings, often with hilarious results. 

In Sheep Mount an ewe and a ram escape their depressing lives on an enclosed farm in Devon, to roam free on Dartmoor. The defiant ewe, Zoe, hopes to rescue her relationship with her ram - Wayne, despite his roving eye. Wayne is happy to oblige after many horrid scientific treatments from the farmer.

Sea Gull Heaven gives us a look into the life of two gulls that have been living out their days at a tip where there are easy pickings for food. Due to city dangers and a wasteful life they wish to get back to nature. They fly to the coasts of Dawlish where they aim to cleanse their spirits.

Seahorse Ride changes our perceptions as we see conventional roles within a relationship switch. The male of the species carries the children and gives birth to them, but is not all too happy about it.

TICTAC Theatre use an interchangeable set, props, and physical theatre skill to perform each play in turn. They portray these animals as we recognise them, whilst in a way that’s very human. Audiences can relate to them and experience life’s relationships through natures eyes.

The play is directed by Jacquie Crago - voice coach for National Theatre productions ‘One Man Two Governors’ & ‘Warhorse’. An actor and director, Jacquie has also been Head of Voice at Oxford School of Drama, Voice Co-ordinator for Birmingham School of Acting and a Vocal Coach for the RSC.
