About the Show Less...

A gaudy and gorgeous breakneck romantic comedy featuring a large scoop of anarchy, a sprinkle of puppetry and a good squeeze of disco. Read More >

In the heady 1970s Ackerley Addaneye and his trusty ice cream van ruled the Devonshire coasts, breaking hearts from Bovey Tracey to Polperro. Thirty years later, Ackerley must face old flames, old rivals, an arthritic pelvis and a freezer containing a small, confused Mariachi player.

Featuring a large scoop of anarchy, a sprinkle of puppetry and a good squeeze of disco, a gaudy and gorgeous breakneck romantic comedy oozing out from the village of Bumpton Brompney via Rio and back again.

Committed to creating inspiring visual theatre that unites both physical and text based work, Pins and Needles is passionate about finding theatrical, imaginative ways of telling stories.
