Join Stan’s Cafe for a very special new production. Twilightofthefreakingods celebrates five glorious years @AEHarris. It will be the last performance at the venue before it ‘downsizes’ and we are planning to say goodbye in spectacular fashion. Twilightofthefreakingods is a large-scale theatrical experiment that slowly unfolds over 255 minutes with a cast of 13 ranging over more than 2000 square metres of performance space. It is a piece of visual theatre (very) loosely inspired by Götterdämmerung with the wonderful Nina West (The Cleansing of Constance Brown soundtrack) replacing Wagner at the sonic controls. The cast will be drawn from companies who have performed @AEHarris over the last five years. There will be no rehearsals, instead the cast will work from instructions and timetables unaware of what anyone else in the room will be doing. It will be an extraordinary occasion. As the show is both a celebration and unusually long, the bar will be open throughout serving flaming cocktails alongside snacks and more familiar drinks. Both cabaret and raked seating will be available for you to either engross yourself in the show or discuss it as it unfolds with your friends. You can change your viewing angle whenever you wish to concentrate on whatever strand of action you find most absorbing. Whatever happens it will be an event about which you will always want to say “and I was there”. There are just two performances: Thursday 10th October 19:00 – 23:15 and Saturday 12th October 19:45 – 24:00 Audience numbers are limited to 100 per night. To book please click here to visit our secure on-line Box Office and join us for this unique event. Twilightofthefreakingods is produced in association with Reel Access and Flatpack. Advertisements


This is a trailer of the Stan's Cafe show The Cardinals. Three Cardinals in crimson robes are on a mission of evangelism. They are on tour with a puppet show they have made that sets out their abbreviated and extrapolated reading of the bible. The reading is abbreviated as it stages only a relatively small […]

A date for the diary: Just as soon as current show The Cardinals has returned from its premiere in Montpellier, Stan’s Cafe will be reprising The Cleansing of Constance Brown @AEHarris, in Birmingham. Craig has edited a new showreel from Joseph Potts’s documentation of March 2008 – the last time the show appeared in the […]


Of All The People In All The World – Japan has been commissioned by the City of Setagaya, a ward in the west of Tokyo, and is being presented in the elegant gallery space of Setagaya Public Theatre. As I write, the show has been evolving for nearly a week and the starting exhibits prepared […]


When I was about 7, I dreamt of a giant train set, which covered the entire surface of Northfield Manor Infants School Playground. In my mind it was only ever seen from one angle; and so subsequent flashbacks to that particular memory appear as if photographic. I know that the trains should be running (across […]

The Rice Show – to be performed in the York Quay Building next door). As a taster to the rice […]
