Around tells the story of an approaching new year and the life-members of Club Ted go about their unchanging routine; until a visitor arrives to challenge the core of everything they know.

Performed by inclusive theatre company Blue Roo, Around features a cast of 26 fabulous performers and eleven outstanding local musicians. Artistically lead and devised by the Blue Roo ensemble, this show is a must-see celebration of diversity.
