Ten Times Table               

tenxtable webgraphic

28 - 31 March

£12 (£10 Conc)

The leading lights of the village have decided to hold a pageant of local history based on a somewhat vague event, "The Massacre of the Pendon Twelve". But there's a young left wing teacher on the committee who decides to turn it into a rally for proletarian revolution. Committee meetings become symbolic battlefields for conflicting views - the right wing faction being led by the Chairman's conservative wife.

The event turns into a violent confrontation between the two extremes, with cataclysmic results. Police intervention brings matters to a relatively quiet conclusion, but already another pageant - Romans v Britons - seems an attractive possibility.

Tommy is regarded as one of the finest singers worldwide and is currently enjoying a hugely successful career. After 25 years honing his craft, Tommy is now taking his place at the forefront of popular music across the globe. The mere mention of a Tommy Fleming concert has ‘sold out’ signs being displayed at venues from Dublin to Darwin within the space of minutes.

Takin' Over The Asylum

asylum webgraphic

 23 - 26 May 

£12 (£10 Conc)

We are loonies! And we are proud!

When Ready Eddie McKenna, Soul Survivor and double-glazing salesman, arrives to re-launch a defunct hospital radio station in a psychiatric unit, he turns more than the ramshackle station upside-down. The whisky drinking would-be DJ meets the irrepressible Campbell whose dreams seem untouched by reality, the hyper-organised Rosalie who is fighting a one-woman war against germs, the electronic genius Fergus whose voices tell him he’s a stupid bastard, and the brittle and self-destructive Francine.

As the patients battle with perception and prejudice as much as illness, Eddie, armed only with his soul music record collection, transforms their lives as well as his own.

“Franceschild’s bittersweet comedy… stands as a metaphor for authoritarian oppression… Behind Franceshild’s brash, confrontational jokes is a plea for understanding of the damage done by circumstance.” - The Guardian

“Great writing, good music, a collection of fabulous characters… and a well structured story.” - Whatsonstage.com

Rock And Roll Revolution

Rock and Roll

7:30pm, Wednesday 27 June 2018

£20 Full price / £18 Concessions

The Bluejays (Winners of the National Vintage Award for 'Best Band') present an electrifying and authentic tribute to the era when music changed the world forever. Between 1955 and 1959, artists such as Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, The Everly Brothers, Eddie Cochran and Little Richard not only transformed the musical landscape but also the way we continue to look at the world today.

Much more than just a concert show, The Bluejays take you on a historical journey via breathtaking renditions of the biggest hits of the era (Rock Around The Clock, That's All Right,That'll Be The Day, Tutti Frutti, Summertime Blues, Johnny B. Goode, Wake Up Little Susie, La Bamba, A Teenager In Love and many more) and reveal how the Rock 'n' Roll movement, rather than being “a communicable disease”, brought about a dream of equality and freedom that we still chase to this day.

“A wonderful band!” – Brian May, Queen
“The Bluejays had the room jiving their fluorescent socks off!” – Howard Goodall, Composer
