Sheffield Theatres welcome a selection of thought-provoking and funny performances to the Studio in June.

Eggs Collective present Late Night Love tomorrow, a “tender and ridiculous show that clambers up your drainpipe with a rose between its teeth”.

Inspired by the confessional radio show of the same name, Late Night Love is described as an unflinching attempt to unpick the truth from the fiction of chocolate boxes and untangle expectations of adulthood from the promise of power ballads.

The power of poetry is celebrated in Heathcote Williams’ radical performance piece Poetry Can F Off on Thursday.

Roy Hutchins is joined by Sameena Zehra, Johnny Fluffypunk and Selina Nwulu, plus special guests, in a 55-minute mind-bending maelstrom, referencing more than 80 creative voices who over the years have charted resistance movements from the Peasants’ Revolt to Occupy Wall Street.

Ventoux on Friday and Saturday is about the most fearsome mountain on the Tour de France.

It is also the story of Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani, and their drug-fuelled race there in 2000 which, at the time, was billed as the greatest cycling had ever seen.

Join 2Magpies as they restage the race using video accompaniment and a pair of road bikes, asking how far will we go to succeed?

Two male actors explore the fascinating dynamic of a 30-something daughter and her aging mother in Gods Are Fallen And All Safety Gone next Tuesday, June 7.
