April 2017

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

Wednesday, April 19, 2017, 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, 2017, 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

This show went down a storm at the Edinburgh Festival this year and received a four star review from the Scotsman who described it as “… quite simply a show and a half, a bit much in all the best ways.” Read the Scotsman’s show preview here
