Associate artists of stage@leeds and winners of the ‘Best Regional Fringe Show 2018’ (Always Time For Theatre) bring their witty and heartfelt, 100 Ways to Tie a Shoelace to Waterside, Trafford.

A theatrical feast of insightful dialogue, puppetry and original music.

100 Ways to Tie a Shoelace is a poignant and funny, piece of new writing, complete with outrageous characters, plenty of laughs and a sincere narrative.

Since she had the accident, Kat has had trouble with her memory and basic everyday tasks. She finds that her only escape from her muddled mind is the hospital ward TV.

This show is a bombastic and comedic take on the realigning of one person’s mind following a life-changing accident. Plunged into a world of confusion, this heart-warming story explores Kat’s recovery as she tries to fight her anxieties and conquer her fears. However, the lines between reality and fantasy begin to blur, which means Kat will have to face some unusual visitors if she wants to ever feel like her old self again.

A theatrical feast of insightful dialogue, puppetry and original music create the surreal world Kat finds herself in, whilst never forgetting the sobering reality of the situation.

Mix-ups, mayhem and muscle memory. There’s never a dull moment.
