Tales of growing up; Theatre.

IT IS a story about friendship, bravery and growing up.

Chris Goode's one man show, The Adventures Of Wound Man And Shirley won many fans at last year's Edinburgh Festival. Now it is due in Huddersfield where it will play for one night on March 28.

Chris Goode is a writer and maker for theatre and live performance. He has recently set up a new organisation, Chris Goode & Company in collaboration with producer Ric Watts and a network of performers, makers and designers. They will work together in an ensemble-based collaborative process to create theatrical ensemble works, story-based shows and live art-based performances. Chris will be the lead performer. This one-man show, that plays the Lawrence Batley Theatre later this month, has been described as "a charming and delightful bedtime story for grown ups".

The Adventures Of Wound Man And Shirley is the story of a teenage boy with a girl's name, growing up in suburbia and feeling like the weirdest kid in the school. Nothing makes much sense to him except his comic books, and his heart belongs to a classmate who barely knows he exists.

Wound Man is an unconventional superhero, sprung from the pages of a 14th century medical book, with an alarming assortment of weapons sticking out of his body.

In the show, Shirley tells the story of these unlikely friends, and the adventures they share.

Tickets are pounds 10 / concessions pounds 8 from the theatre box office on 01484 430528 or book online at
