FAGIN

Tuesday 9 November 2021 at 7.30pm

Tickets - £14.25, Ages 15 to 26 - £5

Written and directed by Simon Downing

Produced by Kick In The Head

Dickens failed to provide a backstory to Fagin, so who was he and who was the real man that Dickens based his character on?

Join Fagin as he reviews his situation during his final night inprison before being hanged. As madness envelops him he is ‘visited’ by some oldacquaintances.

Find out who he really was and how he ended up as one of the best known, yet unknown, of Dickens' characters.

“This powerful new play gives a fresh twist on Dicken’s criminal Fagin.”

Think you know Fagin? Think again.

“All three actors in the roles of Fagin (Keith Hill), Bill (Giles Shenton) and Nancy (Georgia Butt) deliver impeccable performances. In the centre of it all, the audience is captivated by Fagin’s diverse, manipulative and complex character.”

The Reviews Hub

“It is a powerful piece of work….it deserves to become an eventual classic.

The set is simple, the themes (of love, greed, deception, betrayal, regret and retribution) universal, the subtle interplay between the three characters intense and the background (Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist) so familiar that this small masterpiece could well be a theatrical staple.” You would be a fool to yourself to miss it.”

FLY HALF (Ages 14+)

Friday 12 November 2021 at 7.30pm

Tickets -£13.25, concessions - £11.25

A father. A son. A club. A Town. A game. Fly Half.

Fly Half is a new play with original songs that tells the tale ofa rugby playing steel worker from South Wales. Set in an industrial town, this play is a celebration of working class families who head out to the match each week, stand pitch side with pride, supporting their local team. A lyrical hymn to one man's passion for his family, his town and his beloved game. Fly Half isa story of love, loss, community and sport, that rages against the beige of modern life.

Fly Half was awarded Critic’s Choice of 2018 by British Theatre Guide and BritishTheatre.com

‘It is beautifully written—an extended poem, a free verse epicutilising the alliterative tricks and phrasing of Dylan Thomas to provide arich, aural experience: “him, battered and bruised and beaming”. Fly Half deftly charts rugby’s metamorphosis from the old-style punch of the '60s, '70s and '80s to the professionalism and perfect physiques of the modern game.’

British Theatre Guide


“Welsh pride and passion, the mythology of rugby and the reality of working class life.
Lagden’s script is collieries deep”

MIKE BUBBINS: Throwback

Saturday 19th March 2022 at 8pm

Tickets - £21

Mike Bubbins, star of hit podcast The Socially Distant Sports Bar, and of BBC televisioncomedies Mammoth, Tourist Trap and The Unexplainers, unleashes THROWBACK, his first ever solo UK stand-up tour. And things may never be the same again.

THROWBACK is a powerful, thought-provoking, visceral hour of stand-up comedy, that pushes boundaries, defies neat descriptions and challenges the audience... 

AS IF IT IS! 

It’s actually an hour and a half of really funny stories, pretty impressive characterisations, possibly a song (he said he’ll see how that goes), a bit of nostalgia about the good old days, a bit of optimism about the good new days, and Mike generally having a laugh about life and not taking himself, or anything else, too seriously. Having said that, he may, at some point in the show, get very annoyed at berks, whether in the past, the present, or the future. Very annoyed.

So basically THROWBACK is a comedy show about Bubbins sharing, and bringing to life, the stuff that he finds funny. As comedy concepts go, it’s a pretty straightforward one, really.

‘They asked me to do a UK comedy tour, called THROWBACK...and so I did.’  Mike Bubbins
