Dane Baptiste Walker Theatre Saturday 8th October 2016   Pre-cursed by Eshaan Ackbar the evening of comedy got off to a polite start. Eshaan delivered a twenty minute support set and it seems, took the audience a little by surprise.

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 behaviour in Gulf War 2 and we...

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 one of the most celebrated royals...

Milked Walker Theatre 17/March/2015   Milked, from the pen of Simon Longman and performed by our own local company, Pentabus; bravely explores the lot of two twenty-somethings stuck in in rural surroundings. The play ran for a straight 67 minutes and demonstrates pure excellence in the art of theatre. So many plays look at the problems of city life, it is a refreshing thought that people are...

Chicken Pox Fox Donna Disco Walker Theatre 5/March/2015 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 of twaddle that deserves a place in the Hall of Theatrical Shame! Donna Disco is certainly not one...
