March 2017

Christine Bovill’s Piaf (musical theatre) Fri 24th March, 8pm

Friday, March 24, 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The award-winning singer Christine Bovill brings to life Edith Piaf in this show. Piaf’s story is well documented – her legendary voice – a child of the Paris streets who rose, via a tragic life of drink, drugs and death at 48, to become the best-known chanteuse in America and throughout the world. Christine Bovill’s PIAF celebrates one of France’s most endearing icons; with some of her best known songs. Despite the sorrow of Piaf’s story, this is an evening of celebration – a tale of human triumph over tragedy; and, at its heart, a unique performance by a woman widely regarded as one of the finest interpreters of French Song.

“Something that will stay with you for the rest of your life.” Sunday Times

£12/£10 concs/£8 U16s

Crazy Glue (theatre) Wed 19th April, 7.30pm

Wednesday, April 19, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

They have a car in the garage, a chicken in the pot and a child on the way. But is that enough to make true love stick? Inspired by Etgar Keret’s short story, Crazy Glue follows the comedic roller coaster of a couple’s romance as they move from the blossoming of first love through to the thornier terrain of married life. Inspired by the physical comedy of Buster Keaton and the madcap absurdity of Looney Tunes, Single Shoe Productions fuse clown, mime and dance into a universally accessible show that reveals the mad, messy, sticky side of love. Age recommendation 10+ but younger children should enjoy the slapstick humour.

Descent (theatre) Sat 13th May, 8pm

Saturday, May 13, 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

“If you love someone you stick by them, no matter what happens. Because that’s the deal. Isn’t it?”

50-somethings Rob and Cathy are looking forward to reclaiming their own lives now that their daughter Nicola is grown-up and settled; but looming over them is a threat that could rip the future apart for all three of them. Descent explores what happens as they try to hold on to each other – and

themselves – in the face of early onset dementia. Descent doesn’t flinch from the despair and heartbreak they face – but it also celebrates the courage, the hope and the humanity they bring to the fight. Recommended age 14+ and adults. Running time 55mins

Wednesday, May 17, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

The Furrow Collective is a critically acclaimed English/Scottish quartet consisting of four distinctive and talented performers – Lucy Farrell, Rachel Newton, Emily Portman and Alasdair Roberts. They formed in 2013, drawn together by a shared love of traditional song and balladry and an open, intuitive approach to collaboration. The focus is upon material from English and Scottish sources, occasionally looking further afield in the quest for intriguing songs. Together, they create spine-tingling four-part harmony accompanied by harp, guitar, viola, concertina, piano, banjo, fiddles and musical saw. The band received a nomination for Best Group and Best Traditional Track in the 2015 BBC Radio Two Folk Awards for their debut album At Our Next Meeting,

‘A bravely sparse and compelling new take on traditional songs… A quietly classy young folk band’ The Guardian

The Dime Notes (music) Fri. 9th June, 8pm

Friday, June 9, 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

The Dime Notes dig back into the blues-drenched sounds of clarinet-driven 1920’s New Orleans jazz, unearthing a repertoire of stomps, blueses, and forgotten gems of the era from musicians such as Johnny Dodds, Jelly Roll Morton and Red Nichols. Fronted by Chris Barber’s long-time clarinetist David Horniblow, and American pianist/composer/musicologist Andrew Oliver, the band is anchored by the unstoppable pulse of rhythm guitarist Dave Kelbie and Tom Wheatley on bass. The Dime Notes present a fresh take on a timeless style, emphasizing the propulsive grooves and sultry melodies which made early jazz revolutionary, controversial, and wildly popular.
