Derby LIVE’s Guildhall Theatre


Derby LIVE is proud to announce that In Tents and Purposes starring Alys Metcalf and Roxy Dunn, will be visiting the Derby LIVE’s Guildhall Theatre.

Ten years. Two Friends. One fortune-teller - In Tents and Purposes comes fresh from a 5 star sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe. Join Roxy Dunn (C4’s Babylon, BBC Three’s Top Coppers) and Alys Metcalf (Olivier Award-winning The Play That Goes Wrong) as they compete with their egos to tell a comic, time-hopping story exploring whether our lives are predetermined or shaped by our choices.

Theatre goers can also stay on for an informal post show Q&A with the performers in the Guildhall Bar, where you can ask any questions that you have about the performance, or the creative processes involved.

“A very charming, very funny, sharp, smart play” – A Younger Theatre
