DO YOU THINK THAT'S WISE? - LIFE AND TIMES OF JOHN LE MESURIER
SAT 02 JUNE @ 7.00 PM £7.50
In this affectionate tribute to one of Britain’s best-loved comedy stars, leading impressionist Julian
Dutton (BBC1’s The Big Impression, BBC R4’s The Secret World) brings to life the man behind the wry smile and urbane English repartee that charmed millions and turned John Le Mesurier into a household name as Sergeant Wilson in Dad’s Army. As with many comedy stars, Le Mesurier’s life was not without tragedy – his broken marriage to Hattie Jacques, his betrayal by his best friend Tony Hancock – all these setbacks shook him, but his reputation as the quintessential English Gentleman never wavered. Packed with glorious reminiscences and stories from the Golden Age of Classic British Comedy, Julian Dutton’s show is a joyful and moving celebration of one of the most popular comic actors of our era.
FETISH THEATRE CHAPTER 8 'DEVOTED'
THU 07 JUNE @ 9.00 PM £ 13
A powerful, thrilling and erotic story of love, commitment, patriotism and devotion under the changing tides of war and the confining ropes of religion. Characters of a community explore and question their shifting identities, stigmas and sexualities, devoted to their roles, relationships and rituals.
KEEP CALM I’M ONLY DIABETIC
SAT 09 JUNE @ 7.00 PM £ 12.50/10.00
If you think Type 1 diabetes is a disability, think again. This satirical one man show follows the real life
story of one diabetic’s journey and the obstacles he has to overcome to make his dreams come true.
Yes there’s heartbreak and tears as some opportunities are cruelly closed off from him. But in a career
spanning professional sport, music and showbusiness this is ultimately a tale of laughter and joy, and how to reach for the top when the odds are stacked against you.
"Gourkan's style is manic, up-close, fast-speaking, but highly passionate and heart-felt. Partly comedic, his impressions of the people he meets along the way are excellently observed" Matthew Dougall- reviewer numbernine.
