Badapple Theatre Company presents
Yorkshire Kernel
Written and performed by Danny Mellor
Directed by Kate Bramley
Newly commissioned by Badapple Theatre for their “No Hall Too Small” scheme

Meet James. James’ Grandad is at death’s door, but he has one last mission: Find a tree. Many trees in fact, scattered around the country in memory of his WW2 comrades. Sounds simple, right?
Between being haunted by his plain-speaking Grandad, his Mother rekindling her romance with an old flame, and James’ pregnant partner Rosie who thinks he’s cheating on her, this barmy one-man show takes you on a journey of Yorkshire wit and grit and one man’s pursuit to leave a long-lasting legacy.
This is a poignant and hilarious new one-man show from the inimitable Danny Mellor, writer of the acclaimed Undermined (National Tour/ Red Ladder) and Suffer Fools Gladly (Badapple Theatre, 2021). Come and join us for the world premiere of this brand-new comedy!
Badapple Theatre are one of the UK’s most vibrant and prolific touring companies and their stories delight audiences of all ages, bringing high-quality theatre to communities large and small across the UK.
“Full marks to Badapple, North Yorkshire’s own “doorstep theatre” enterprise.” NORTHERN ECHO

Riot Act Tour

Riot Act
Thursday 9 June 2022
Venue: York Theatre Royal
This hard-hitting but outrageously funny production was created from Gregory’s interviews with a Stonewall survivor, a radical drag artist, and an AIDS activist. Riot Act is touring the UK from April to August, followed by screenings of the digital companion piece in August.

Writer and performer Alexis Gregory interviewed three members of the LGBTQ+ rights movement to form this poignant and entertaining show: Michael-Anthony Nozzi, a survivor of the Stonewall riots; Lavinia Co-op, an alternative ‘70s drag artist; and Paul Burston, a ‘90s AIDS activist. Directed by Stonewall (1995) writer Rikki Beadle-Blair MBE, Riot Act brings to life the stories of these three key players in the history of the LGBTQ+ rights movement in a breath-taking and hilarious exploration of six decades of queer history.

HP Lovecraft: Gallery Of Screams
Friday 10 June 2022
Venue: Theatre@41 Monkgate, York, YO317PB
H P Lovecraft: Gallery of Screams
Adapted and Performed by R M Lloyd Parry
“Any magazine-cover hack can splash paint around and call it a ‘Witches’ Sabbath or ‘Portrait of the Devil.’ But only a real artist can make it scare you…”
In these two tales of terror by H P Lovecraft, the American master of ‘the Weird tale,’ an art critic and a philosopher get pushed to very edge of sanity by the images and sounds they confront.
‘Pickman’s Model’ introduces us to the uncannily brilliant work of Richard Upton Pickman – a genius shunned by the artistic establishment because of his sickening canvases. It is paired here with ‘The Music of Eric Zann,’ an eerie, baffling tale that Lovecraft himself counted as a personal favourite.
Robert Lloyd Parry has spend the last 13 years enacting The M R James Project, a series of one-man shows based on classic English ghost stories. Here he crosses the Atlantic to pay tribute to James’s exact contemporary – a stranger, sadder man but one with an arguably even greater talent for bringing nightmares to life.
“Utterly mesmerizing” The Washington Post on The M R James Project.
