A Bench on the Road (theatre) Sat 25th Feb, 7.30pm

Saturday, February 25, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Presented by Charioteer Theatre and based on real testimonies, A Bench on the Road is a rich piece of musical and visual storytelling which explores Scottish-Italian women’s experience of immigration in the period 1850-1950. Based on hundreds of interviews collected over thirty years, this play brings to life stories of our mothers, unlocking the past and asking pertinent questions about our future. Weaving together folk music from the Scottish and Italian traditions, bold visuals and innovative language and dialect, the piece strikes at the heart of the public debate around immigration and changing notions of identity in Europe.

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

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.

“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
