The Fabulous Bacon Boys.


A classic children’s tale has been re-imagined for stage by a quirky theatre group, promising to blow you down with laughter.

Comedy play The Fabulous Bacon Boys will be staged at Clevedon’s Theatre Shop, in Triangle Centre, from March 3-4 at 2pm.

This retelling of The Three Little Pigs centres on the Bacon Construction firm, with three builder brothers earning their living by creating ‘state-of-the-art’ houses made of straw, wood and brick for the wealthy villagers of Little-Muckle-in-the-Wold.

But before these piggies can get their houses to market, they must first impress the fearsome planning inspector Miss Wolf.

The play is the brainchild of Bristol-based theatre group Living Spit. The organisation has built an impressive reputation for delivering funny, quirky plays.

The Fabulous Bacon Boys have earned rave reviews, and is often staged to sell-out crowds.

Tickets, which include a drink, plus a bacon sandwich or a pig-shaped biscuit, cost £12 and are available at www.theatreshop.org.uk

The Times has teamed up with Theatre Orchard to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a pair of tickets to see Living Spit’s The Fabulous Bacon Boys at the Theatre Shop on March 3 at 2pm.
