“Ignition is a promising format. A sustained burst of creativity tested out on an audience before complacency can set in. A different cast and we’d have a totally discrete show. A different line of inspiration and we’d have been transported to a totally new destination. Nerve-racking for the company, pretty nerve-racking for the audience too. Not a bad way to light up an evening.”


Hubert and the Yes Sock! Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival 2018

Tinderbox return this May with an exciting new play by Dan Leith …

Hubert Caulfield leads a solitary life. Overlooked at work, friendless, and unlucky in love. He is desperate for a change and to fit in. Could a mysterious confidence giving sock be the answer to all his problems?  

Tinderbox provides the invaluable opportunity for local artists to create and develop their own ideas through our Take Away Theatre programme and we are delighted to present Hubert and Yes Sock by the brilliant Dan Leith as part of CQAF 2018.

This production is suitable for ages 16+

Come and celebrate being different with Hubert and the Yes Sock….
