MEMBERS of an acclaimed theatre company will be visiting the Artrix with a riot of tragic comedy like no other.

Kneehigh Theatre makes its first visit to the venue with Alaska, an odyssey of epic proportions challenging people’s views on modern living.

It will take audience members to one of the last great frontiers of the modern world – a land where steam freezes, fish have mastered cryogenics and the Yukon River can make people disappear.

Bear Grylls, Ray Mears, a whole host of forest wildlife, firelight, shadows and one hell of a soundtrack, all appear.

Tickets for the show, on Tuesday, February 19 cost £12 (£10 discount) and are available from the box office on 01527 577330 or online at
