Tony Stockwell with a list of credits as long as your arm, was on stage in the Walker Theatre chatting as he told us,  with people on the other side!

Midge Ure

Theatre Severn


It was a full house from a large strata of society that waited patiently for the former golden boy of New Romance, Midge Ure. Patiently they waited.

Donna Disco

Walker Theatre


When one attends a play with little or no information other than what is written in the Theatre Severn handbook, it is always quite natural to feel a little trepidation. Sometimes it is well founded and one can be trapped in a disastrous piece...
