Dead Sheep

Theatre Severn

Monday3rd -Saturday 9th  October2016


"Being attacked by Geoffrey Howe is like being savaged  by a dead sheep," claimed Dennis Healey. Like it or not the Thatcher years are now remarkable enough to have made it into the big book of British history. It really happened. But there is no better way to remember that than with a laugh and a...

The Collector

Walker Theatre

29th September-1st October 2016


When one talks of history one often hears the adage that history is always written by the winners; Well maybe that’s so but it doesn’t mean to say that every account is necessarily  untrue.  “The Collector,” is the piece that one could hold up to the world and say this an honest account of The West’s...

Theatre Severn

Ssaturday 24th September 2016

Of all the performing arts, possibly with the exception of juggling knives whilst dangling upside down from a tightrope, it is fair to say that the lot of a stand-up comedian must rate highly on an entertainer’s fear factor scale.

All Or Nothing

The Mod Musical.

Theatre Severn

Sunday 26th June 2016

It is always an enlightening experience when one is introduced to local talent, groups or artists.

I, Elizabeth

Walker Theatre

Wednesday 15th June.

There are so many times one sees the Royals going about their royal business, a wave, a smile and a handshake and it is difficult if not impossible, to really see what they are thinking or worrying about behind closed doors.

Tonight theatre goers were treated to a fascinating look inside the rather tortured mind of...
