Unknown to most, there is a large, clumsy, furry orange monster living in Stokes Croft, Bristol's dilapidated, graffiti-scrawled cultural quarter. By day, he watches over its people and records their stories. By night, he wanders alone and paints their dreams. Or nightmares. A live graphic novel with stop-motion animation by MC and Poet Jack Dean, Under Stokes Croft takes inspiration from Dylan Thomas’ legendary Under Milk Wood document 24-and-a-bit hours in the life of Bristol’s own Bohemia, centering around the infamous night of 21st April 2011, the Tesco riots. Expect fires, fears, flights and top-notch veggie burgers..

With Guest Poets RAYMOND ANTROBUS on the 29th and PETER HAYHOE on the 30th.
