Land of Nod - at HEART

The Land of Nod is a Leeds-based comedy sketch show that’s been running since Spring 2010. They have performed in a number of venues in Yorkshire- Bradford Playhouse, Hebden Bridge Fringe Festival, Wakefield, York and regularly at Seven Arts in Chapel Allerton. The show consists of seventeen quick fire sketches ably performed by four actors (2 female/ 2 male) with a wide range of performing experience.

The sketches range from the topical- Our Tribute to the Diamond Jubilee- to the macabre, surreal and satirical. Influences range from Peter Cook, to Big Train, to The Day Today. They cover topics from waiting for god to ‘Airlock Holmes’ a modern day wanna-be detective who never seems to get it right.

They are appearing in the HEART Café in Bennett Road on Friday 11 May at 7.30pm. Tickets on the door - four pounds.
