The Battling Butlers are in Dorset


Packed with live music, physical comedy & circus, internationally-acclaimed Bash Street Theatre tell a story as old as time in their brand-new show ‘The Battling Butlers’. This March they head to Dorset for three performances with Artsreach, the county’s rural arts charity.
Juggling babies, toddlers on stilts and teaching young Joey to ride his first unicycle are all part of everyday life for single dad, Joe Butler, in this poignant, family love story involving the ever-changing relationship of a father-and-son double act.
Based in Penzance in Cornwall, Bash Street Theatre has built an international reputation over the last 30 years, performing silent-comedy, street theatre shows throughout the UK, Europe and beyond. Their latest show, The Battling Butlers, is a real family affair, performed by father and son, Simon Pullum and Loki Pickering, and featuring original live music from multi-instrumentalist and composer Julian Gaskell.
Artsreach Assistant Director Yvonne Gallimore said “Bash Street have been touring to Dorset for many years, and audiences fondly remember shows such as ‘The Lion Tamer’ and ‘The Strongman’. We’re excited to see Simon and Loki explore the father/son role more closely and are excited to be supporting them as the tour across the UK.’
