The Bike Shed Theatre

Jenny stands at the top of the hill. Her legs shake, her top lip trembles. The decline before her beckons. The wind pushes at her back. This is her time, the hill her arena. Will Jenny defy the expectations of friends and family, risking severe bodily harm (and probable legal action) to save the Little Curdlington Cheese-Rolling?

Join the Narwhal Ensemble for Whey Down South, a theatrical quest to preserve the age old tradition of cheese rolling and fight the looming influence of big money. Will the community band together, or will it crumble like finely aged cheddar?

The Narwhal Ensemble are a Theatre Royal Plymouth Supported Company. This production is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
