Devised & Performed by
Hot Coals Theatre.

Two tramps, one junkyard and an unexpected surprise!


Two endearing and quirky characters living in a scrapyard on the fringes of society, have their lives turned upside down!

The discovery of a tiny baby amongst the rubble catches them by surprise. But where did it come from? Is it a gift from above or did it get washed down the river? And does it come with a manual?!

Join these loveable vagrants and step into the strange and murky world of Mr Pharaoh and his daughter as they grapple with their new routine.

Hot Coals second show is a fun filled, touching piece inspired by the story of Moses, in the form of music, puppetry and comic happenings in a highly visual piece with no dialogue, created to be accessible to a (d)Deaf and hearing audience in a shared experience.


Finders Keepers was created in co-production with RADA Festival and toured extensively gaining 4 star reviews in Edinburgh Festival Fringe and enjoying a UK Regional Theatre tour and run at London’s Park Theatre.
