A warming welcome to the trio behind Alaska

If you’re still recovering from winter’s so-called big chill, when a few inches of snow caused chaos for commuters and closed schools across the county, you might not want to escape to Alaska for the evening.

But that would be a shame, because this Alaska can be found in Hemel Hempstead’s High Street on Friday night.

A £10 ticket (£8 concessions or £6 with a Dacorum card) will get you in to the Cornwall-based Black Fish theatre company production, which claims to follow in the footsteps of adventurers like Bear Grylls and Ray Mears as one man goes in search of adventure, freedom and a piece of the good life only to find that the reality is no picnic.

Alaska is billed as ‘a tragi-comic riot of Pythonesque dottiness guaranteed to leave you spellbound’, and suitable for anyone over 12.

Performers Giles King and Craig Johnson and writer Carl Grose have put their heads together to create the show – call 01442 228 091 for box office details.
