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
