MR & MRS CLARK: F.E.A.R (Ages 16+)
F.E.A.R.  - A Mr & Mrs Clark production

22 - 24 March, 7.45pm

Tickets £13, Reductions £11

(F.E.A.R.) is a one-man show about constructed fear. It asks directly if the world want us to feel safe. (F.E.A.R.) is a brave, revealing and at times hilarious one-man tour of early child hood memories to midlife identity crisis delivered directly to the audience in a revealing and close up manner.

In this life story, that encapsulates early childhood memories and public information films, a clear and ever more fevered narrative unearths the fears of a middle aged man plagued with the news of Islamic State attacks, the revelations of Edward Snowden, the rise of UKIP and of a growing concern of physical decay. 
 
Described as 'a powerful blast of theatre', (F.E.A.R.) allows the audience to witness the vulnerability of a solo male performer in full confessional mode. Expect a rollercoaster of dark humour and powerful story telling that becomes ever more fevered and uneasy when discussing the uncertainties of Brexit, state security and dysfunctional ageing. 

Mr and Mrs Clark follow up their Amnesty International award nominated show Smash It Up with another powerful performance questioning the way we live. (F.E.A.R.) is once again a timely piece of theatre that aims to analyse and discuss the constant fear we live with from day to day and its political ramifications.

Mae brenin yr Alban wedi gwobrwyo ei filwr mwyaf disglair yn hael. Ond mae bodau goruwchnaturiol wedi darogan i Macbeth anrhydedd lawer mwy. Pan fo ei wraig ddidostur yn gwirioni ar addewid o bŵer di-ben-draw, gan annog uchelgais cythreulig ei gŵr, mae ar ben arno, ac mae cynllun dieflig y ddau yn troi’n gyflafan waedlyd.

And sometimes they hide.  

What happens when the past and the future collide?

JANE EYRE: An Autobiography

Thursday 14th September at 7.30pm

Tickets - £13, concessions - £12, Earlybird - £10

Struggling to think, live and love beyond the stifling expectations of duty, class and convention, governess Jane Eyre and Master Edward Rochester take a dark journey towards sensual and intellectual liberation. Told through Jane’s eyes, English literature’s most celebrated autobiographical novel shocked the Victorians, and Charlotte Bronte’s gothic subversion of fairy-tale romance is now distilled for the stage – under its full title – by writer/director Elton Townend Jones. Performer Rebecca Vaughan embodies everywoman Jane – and several other characters – in this intimate study of love’s realities.
