| SO & So Circus Theatre are teetering on life's edge with Backgammon For Beginners, their new show which follows a man whose existence is off kilter.
It's November 1976. A military jet arrives in London and a bemused looking Iranian man in flares steps on to the tarmac. He holds a single suitcase and blinks in this new land.
Unknown to airport officials, he has smuggled in the last of his opium supply, and brings with him a complicated past from a culture which doesn't slot very neatly into this one.
Over the next few years his attempts to comprehend the differences between his past and his present will lead to jumping out of hotel windows, introducing backgammon to London bars, facing the terror of the National Front and stopping trains with his bare hands.
So & So tell stories using acrobatics, creating full length acrobatic theatre shows, as well as shorter acts for cabarets and events.
Tickets PS10, concessions PS8, details 01642 525199.

Once again, less is MORE combines professional actors with local raw talent to create a piece of theatre that shows just how diverse, dire and ultimately wonderful life can be.
