£12.50 (£10.50 concessions)

Production Company: Lost Dog presents

Duration: Running time: 75 mins

Age Rating: Age 13+


<p><strong>Lost Dog’s</strong> new show reveals the real story of Romeo and Juliet. It turns out they didn’t die in a tragic misunderstanding, they grew up and lived happily ever after. Well, they lived at least. Now they are 40ish, at least one of them is in the grips of a mid-life crisis, they feel constantly mocked by their teenage selves and haunted by the pressures of being the poster couple for romantic love. They have decided to confront their current struggles by putting on a performance – about themselves. Their therapist told them it was a terrible idea.</p> <p>With <strong>Lost Dog’s</strong> blend of dance, theatre and comedy this duet, directed by Olivier Award-nominated <strong>Ben Duke</strong>, takes on our cultural obsession with youth and our inevitable issues with longevity. <strong>Juliet &amp; Romeo</strong> is co-commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre, The Place and Warwick Arts Centre. The work is funded by Arts Council England via Grants for the Arts. Production time supported by Lancaster Arts and development time supported by Oval House through FiRST BiTES. Ben Duke is a Work Place artist.</p> <p>Age recommendation: 13+</p> <p>Approx. running time: 75 minutes</p> <p>“Pure pleasure. Smart, subversive and sexy.”★★★★★ The Guardian</p> <p>“Superb.

<![CDATA[Dancing England]]> Main House 0.00000000 0.00000000 Watch the best in sword dancing, clogging, Morris, Border, North West, Carnival, Molly, and some of our more obscure folkloric traditions

Dancing England

Saturday 26 January 2019 at 6.30pm

Tickets: £17.50 (Concs £12.50)


<p>A Glimpse of Spring in the Depths of Winter with Dancing England’s Dance Extravaganza </p> <p><strong>Dancing England</strong> is bringing the best in traditional dance to the Nottingham Playhouse stage this coming January for an extravaganza of English culture that will be a sight to behold – even for many who think they know what traditional dance is all about. Blending together the history of our Sceptred Isle, its emotions and stories, combined with traditional English folklore, this event will present true English dance and music to a wider audience. </p> <p>Attendees can expect a marvellous concoction of Englishness. We’ve brought together such things as Carnival Morris; a pom-pom, tiptoed spectacle, to counterpoint the bedlam of Herefordshire’s wild and wondrous Border Morris. Cotswold Morris brings the vibes of the summer’s village fete to the stage, whilst the discipline and quasi-militaristic lines and power of the North West Clog Morris will blow you away. </p> <p>Look out for Heraldry coming to life as the giant 16th Century Snap the Dragon and its Whifflers from Norwich accompanies our distinguished guests, and then wanders about the Playhouse keeping all in order. Also, on show will be the oldest recorded dance tradition in Europe when the unique Abbots Bromley Horn Dancers take the stage. </p> <p>And how could we forget the award-winning English sword dancing teams? They will dazzle you with their flashing blades of steel. The out-of-work Molly-dancing Plough Boys from East Anglia demanding money with menaces? Or the Lancashire cloggers rattling out the complex rhythms of the old cotton mills?</p> <p>Not only do you get all the breathtaking action on stage, but the whole event comes together during the day with workshops, exhibitions, films, music, craft stalls, merchandise and downright oddities. </p> <p>If you want to experience an onstage celebration of all things English, and you want to get a true feel for what traditional English dance and indeed traditional English culture is all about, this is the event for you. Not only will you witness historical/authentic dance styles, but there are incredible stories that intertwined them. Experience how miners and workers entertained themselves before the Great War and see how the changing seasons and the working week were marked and celebrated in the form of dance and music. </p> <p>Watch our musicians and dancers tell the story of our industrial and rural history and heritage. You will not find a stage show like this anywhere else in the UK. </p> <p>On Saturday 26th January 2019, starting at 6.30pm, for one night only, you will experience a glimpse of spring in the depths of winter, whose brightness and colour could spark a new interest that continues to bloom throughout the new year.</p> <p>The show will end on a high with a fabulous ceilidh courtesy of the Melrose Ceilidh Band, one of the UK&#8217;s premier dance bands. Alongside a top notch caller, you can dance on the Playhouse stage with everyone to tunes traditional and new, with added voices. </p> ]]>

<p><em>Dear applicant,</em></p> <p><em>After careful consideration, we regret to inform you that&#8230;</em> </p> <p>We know how it goes &#8211; we’ve heard it all before, too. As artists of colour, we know how difficult it is to establish ourselves in the creative world. Whether it&#8217;s applying for jobs or pitching ideas for new work, it&#8217;s tough to make a mark without compromising your values to be considered a &#8220;successful&#8221; artist &#8211; and, frankly, it&#8217;s made even more difficult by not being educated, white and middle class.</p> <p>The S+K Project believes wholly in making the arts sector more accessible, and we understand how collaboration between different people and industries is key in changing the perceptions of what artists of colour can achieve. We want to do our bit to encourage creators, makers and innovators to recognise the importance of building networks and making your mark, by providing a physical space that allows like-minded individuals of similar backgrounds to connect. </p> <p>Featuring activities, performances and insightful panel discussions, <strong>Bring Me In</strong> aims to bring together individuals in a physical space to enhance connections particularly within <span class="caps">BAME</span> communities, in order to improve inclusivity, access and ultimately to make the arts for everyone.</p> <p>#BringIns</p> ]]>

<p>Hey people! It&#8217;s Tim Vine back on tour, telling lots of silly new jokes, showing off new homemade props, singing some new daft ditties, and all with the appearance of confidence. The following subjects will be touched upon briefly: pixie football, ice cream and nibble feeders. Come along, sit down, and laugh. The quantity won&#8217;t let up. This is comedy without a message. What an odd person. What a lot of nonsense. What else is he going to do? &#8216;Sunsets are in the sky, milk&#8217;s nice, and I’m an idiot.&#8217;</p> <p>“A symphony of silly”. <span class="caps">THE</span> <span class="caps">TIMES</span></p> ]]>

<p>Meet Mark. <br /> The thing is I’ve got myself into a bit of a mess… </p> <p>Mark’s an actor. <br /> I keep forgetting my lines. I’ve left my girlfriend and I’m beginning to stink. </p> <p>Mark was an actor. <br /> And to make matters worse I’ve met the Devil. </p> <p>Hilarious, touching and utterly bonkers, Living with the Lights On is a gripping story of a life lived at the edge. <br /> Living with the Lights On is a critically acclaimed play written and performed by Mark Lockyer. 30 years ago, Mark was a promising young actor getting juicy roles at the National and the <span class="caps">RSC</span>. Then, one summer in Stratford, his world fell apart. </p> <p>During a performance of Romeo and Juliet, Mark – playing the mercurial Mercutio – had a breakdown. </p> <p>This is a play about surviving and living with bi-polar disorder. We go on a moving – and often absurdly hilarious &#8211; journey with Mark through relationship breakdown, prison, homelessness, encounters with the justice system and the mental health system. It’s a story filled with humour, tragedy – and a happy ending. <br /> Living with the Lights On has toured since 2016, gathering acclaim and moving audiences wherever it is performed &#8211; from Bristol to Barcelona &#8211; and including two sell-out runs at the Young Vic. </p> <p>★★★★ Lockyer has one hell of a story and he tells it rivetingly well The Times </p> <p>★★★★ Gripping … brutally funny The Guardian </p> <p>★★★★★ Heartfelt and moving … refreshing to see the topic nailed in such a truthful way The Upcoming <br /> About</p> <p><strong>Age guide 14+ &#8211; the show contains some strong language</strong></p> ]]>

<p>Malcolm doesn’t like animals, which is a problem because his family love them, in fact, they’re wild about them. Their house is full of pets of all shapes and sizes, but what it’s <span class="caps">NOT</span> full of is stuff Malcolm likes. Such as the laptop he wanted for his birthday.</p> <p>The only bright spot on the horizon is the Year Six school trip, which Malcolm never thought his parents would pay for. And yet there he is, on the bus, heading to……a farm.</p> <p>What follows is a school trip like no other, where Malcolm begins to understand animals more deeply than anyone. But will he end up the same as before? Because sometimes the hardest thing to become is yourself.</p> <p>A vibrant, energetic and gloriously funny musical from the award-winning Story Pocket Theatre. <strong>ANiMALCOLM</strong> combines physical theatre, puppetry and the company’s outstanding storytelling style to bring David Baddiel’s magical and wonderfully comic story to the stage.</p> <p>&#8216;Funny, sometimes moving, always engaging&#8217; <strong>Guardian (on the book)</strong></p> <p>★★★★★ <em>&#8216;Full of energetic fun and excitement.

<p>Based on real live events, The Long Walk Back tells the epic story of an international<br /> sporting star’s catastrophic fall from grace.

Production Company: Phosphoros Theatre


<p><em>We’re going to tell you our stories how we want to.</em><br /> <em>You’re not here to judge if we’re credible or not.</em><br /> <em>I am not here to make your conscience feel better.</em><br /> <em>I don’t need you to feel sorry for me.</em></p> <p>Shortlisted for the Amnesty Freedom of Expression Award 2016, this unique emerging company stars four refugee young men who made the arduous journey to the UK on their own as children from Afghanistan, Eritrea and Albania. They have told their ‘stories’ repeatedly to the Home Office as part of seeking asylum and it is their desire to reclaim them that grounds Phosphoros Theatre’s innovative work. From the backdrop of a pizza shop we embark on a journey across time and continents to explore how they got here, where they’re going and what they’ve learnt along the way. It’s a story of male and cultural identity, of family and fatherhood, a lyrical collage of memories, hopes, dreams and imagined realities. From prisons in Libya and Greece to conversations with absent Mothers to raising the next generation of sons. Powerful, celebratory, affirming, authentic; this is theatre that puts refugees centre stage.</p> <p><strong>Previous praise for Phosphoros:</strong></p> <p>Broadway Baby for Dear Home Office: Still Pending &#8211; <em>‘intimate and subtly poignant story told by those who rarely get their voices heard’</em></p> <p>Theatre Bubble for Dear Home Office: Still Pending &#8211; <em>‘excellent theatre of testimony’</em></p> <p>The Stage for Dear Home Office – <em>‘a bold piece of theatre making’</em></p> <p>Three Weeks for Dear Home Office – <em>‘one of the best examples of art for a cause’</em></p> <p><strong>Actors</strong><br /> Tewodros Aregawe<br /> Goitom Fesshaye<br /> Kate Duffy<br /> Emirjon Hoxhaj<br /> Syed Haleem Najibi</p> <p>Written by Dawn Harrison with the Company.<br /> Directed by Dawn Harrison and Pavlos Christodoulou<br /> Producer/technical director – Juliet Styles<br /> Participation manager – Kate Duffy</p> <p>For more information check out our website <a href="https://www.phosphorostheatre.com"><strong>https://www.phosphorostheatre.com</strong></a></p> ]]>

The show starts with Gandalf and will probably end with an invitation to act with me on stage. In-between there will be anecdotes and acting. I open at my local arts centre in January and end up by August in Orkney.</p> <p>Live theatre has always been thrilling to me, as an actor and in the audience. Growing up in Lancashire, I was grateful to those companies who toured beyond London and I’ve always enjoyed repaying that debt by touring up and down the country myself, with the <span class="caps">RSC</span>, the National Theatre, Prospect Theatre, the Actors’ Company, as well as with commercial productions.</p> <p>I was part of the first company which opened the Playhouse in 1963, before I’d ever worked in London. It will be thrilling to be back with my new solo show of anecdote and acting. Including the reprise of one of my youthful performances in Nottingham. All profits will benefit free participatory activity for children in the most deprived areas of Nottingham in particular <span class="caps">SHINE</span> free youth theatres and 50:50 free ticket scheme.

<p>As well as being the all-round entertainer we all know and love from the telly, Count Arthur Strong is also a lifelong fan of astronomy, since having been given a microscope, or whatever it is they use, for Christmas when he was a small precocious baby. In fact, it’s said the first word he spoke was ‘Uranus’. In this, his brand-new show, he seamlessly combines the very best showbiz entertainment you’ll currently find, in the world, possibly? as he wrestles with some of the big questions that other all-round entertainers shy away from. Such as:</p> <p>Are we alone in the universe?<br /> Is there life on Mars bars?<br /> 2lbs of potatoes.<br /> Packet of ginger nuts.<br /> Don’t lose this shopping list.</p> <p><strong>‘Do not miss this not to be missed type of thing! If I wasn’t in the show I’d definitely be in the audience watching myself intently. Laughing and learning in equal measure. Thoroughly happy to pay the admission fee and definitely not asking for a refund. Also not rustling sweet wrappers and fiddling with my sodding telephone with a gormless expression on my face. See you there!’</strong>. </p> <p><em>“Undeniably brilliant”</em> &#8211; <strong>Brian Logan, The Guardian</strong> <br /> <em>“Pure genius and pure tribute to the golden age of vaudeville”</em> &#8211; <strong>Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard</strong> <br /> <em>“Can safely be mentioned in the same breath as Tommy Cooper”</em> &#8211; <strong>Steve Bennett, Chortle</strong> </p> <p>In little over two decades the meticulous comic creation of Count Arthur Strong has gone from an Edinburgh Fringe cult to become a mainstay of the UK comedy scene. With a reputation built over eight Edinburgh runs, eleven national tours and 70 broadcast shows on <span class="caps">BBC</span> Radio and TV, Count Arthur Strong’s position in the comedy landscape is now often likened to that once held by the variety greats Tommy Cooper, Ken Dodd and Tony Hancock.</p> ]]>
