Don't look now, but Spring is nearly here... Well, we can't wait, so our Spring Season is already available to book and includes some beautiful blooms of our own! Let our ecclectic mix of the fun and farcical, the bawdy and extraordinary, the dark and the devious, delight those eager eyes! Here at Clifftown, we dare to be different, and we dare you to join us...

Thunders Mouth Theatre present


Wed 9th Mar 2016, 8:00pm 


Clown, singing, Shakespeare, ukulele and acting are no match for 70-something Dame June Bloom in her brand new one-woman show. A comical-tragic and bittersweet roadtrip along the seven ages of woman, written and performed by Flloyd Kennedy (with William Shakespeare!).


Yes because…is witty, quirky and intelligent. A genuinely entertaining piece, raw and extremely funny!

Sally Peters, Artshub

It’s seriously funny! Flloyd has a masterful connection to herself and her character!

Peter Rasmussen, Casting Director
