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 our all too brief return in December, we're back! .We’re thrilled that starting in the very week that theatre is legal again we will be back on the road, playing our favourite venues with Living Spit’s Beauty and the Beast. We are playing in our hometown of Clevedon, fulfilling a run that never happened, and playing venues across Bristol, Wiltshire, Hampshire,

Somerset and Dorset,

along with a welcome return to the iconic Minack Theatre.

Living Spit's


& The Beast

Howard Coggins is beautiful.

There’s no escaping that.


But then so is Stu Mcloughlin.


In fact, Living Spit is widely known as the most physically attractive two-man musical comedy theatre company in the South-West. However, in this tale as old as time one of them will have to portray an ugly, foul-tempered beast. But which one will it be?


From the creators of the Offie award-nominated Six Wives of Henry VIII comes a brand-new, monstrously-musical, Disney-defying version of this classic French tale about what it means to be truly beautiful in the 18th century.


"'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
