Howard Coggins and Stu Mcloughlin in Fra

We're Living Spit. We make comedy-theatre shows. Which have music in. That we write. Some people like them. And laugh. In an appropriate way. We make them in Clevedon, North Somerset, UK. Cos that's where we live. Then we put them on all over the place.

Come and see us in 2020.

It might be alright.

Yes, that's right. after six months of thumb-twiddling and podcast making, we're going back on the road! First up is the rest of our tour of "The Six Wives of Henry VIII" that we had to abandon in March and then we've got a brand new show for you lovely people. More news on that soon, but here's those 'Henry' dates. And capacities are going to be very limited, so book early to gauarantee disappointment!

The Six Wives of Henry VIII

Two Actors. Too Many Characters.
One Big Ego.

Howard Coggins looks like Henry VIII. There's no escaping that.

Stu McLoughlin doesn't look like any of the wives, but he's going to give it a go.

After their previous self-funded historical drama is savaged in the press, Howard and Stu are at their wits end.

Then they hit on an idea for a show that could change everything....

But can two of the South West's favourite theatrical sons put aside their differences and make it through to the end without killing each other?

'The Six Wives of Henry VIII' was an undisputed hit at the Bristol Old Vic and with live original music, embroidery, Barbie dolls, silly songs and historical hysteria, this promises to be an ill-researched lesson in Tudor history you'll never forget.


"'The Six Wives of Henry VIII' is a storming, surprising and sassy night out. The music is as cool as the wives are hot and, amidst the sharp dialogue, witty characters, deft theatricality and bloody fascinating history, I was genuinely moved. Cracking storytelling and a top night out." – Emma Rice (Wise Children and The Globe)


“Hysterically funny…left me with aching cheeks from laughing so much” – ***** StageWon


Think of Six, turn it upside down, add a couple of hysterical jokes, and you'll have The Six Wives of Henry VIII. The result is glorious. – **** Broadway World


“A brilliant, successful show that will ensure you have one of the funniest evenings of the beginning of this decade.” ***** - My Theatre Mates
