Spora Stories presents

Pandora’s Box by Ade Solanke

Fri 19 – Sat 20 September ‘You think England is hard? Compared to Nigeria? My dear, you haven’t seen anything yet!’ On holiday with her streetwise son in Lagos, a British-Nigerian mother is in turmoil. Should she leave her only child in a strict Nigerian boarding school, or return him to the battlefields of inner London? A family spanning three generations and two continents meets in Lagos for the first time in over thirty years. But the joy of reunion also unleashes long-suppressed truths. An exuberant and thought-provoking mix of comedy, tragedy and family drama, Pandora’s Box reveals the heartbreak behind the difficult choices parents must make – and the price their children pay.

Bridget Christie A Bic for Her

Fri 26 September 7.45pm Bridget Christie (Bridget Christie Minds the Gap, News Quiz and Have I Got News for You) does not wear her feminism lightly. She wears it heavily, like a suit of armour.

Mon 29 September 7.45pm Key (37 now) climbs into his poetry clothes and leans against his mic stand for another hour. Now charming, he will recollect simple tales of love, gaze dead-eyed at the ladies, recite verse and do basic talking. A lot of fairly grubby water’s sloshed under Key’s bridge of late so he’ll be churning that up. He’s also fairly interested to lift the lid on Hollywood. There’ll be some Indian poetry, Indian beer and, if he can get his act together, a spotlight. Other potential themes will be owls and maybe fairies. Edinburgh Comedy AwardWinner.

The Notebook

Tue 30 September 7.45pm

Based on the book by Ágota Kristóf

A new father-son comedy from Fringe First-winner Richard Marsh.

Fri 10 & Sat 11 October 7.45pm

Mum’s dead. Annoyingly, dad’s not. After 20 years apart, father and son meet again at her graveside. But can they say goodbye to mum without saying hello to each other? Wingman mixes poetry and prose to tell an achingly funny story that reminds us: no matter how bad life is, family can make it worse. Praise for previous work: ‘Lovely, Witty, Delicious… Warmly and fuzzily recommended’ ★★★★★ Independent. ‘Restores your faith in human nature and the Fringe… bliss’ ★★★★ Telegraph. Studio Theatre

A Forced Entertainment performance based on the award-winning novel The Notebook (1986), by Hungarian writer Ágota Kristóf. Directed by Tim Etchells, The Notebook tells the story of twin brothers evacuated to the Hungarian countryside during World War II, to stay at their impoverished grandmother’s farm. Kristóf’s narrational language – bold, crisp and reduced – provides the basis for a compelling performance.

Paul Merton in Conversation Mon 20 October 7.30pm Known for his intelligent and often surreal humour, Paul Merton’s weekly appearances on BBC1’s Have I Got News For You have seen him become an artfully rebellious fixture in our lives for over 25 years. In Only When I Laugh, his rich and beautifully-observed autobiography, Paul takes us on an evocative journey from his working-class Fulham childhood to the present day. From his school days, his run-ins with the nuns, his meatpacking job, his repeated attempts to break into the world of comedy and his success in the 1980s alternative cabaret scene, to the terrifying manic episode which landed him in the Maudesley hospital, Paul Merton tells his life story entertainingly, with warmth, candour and wit.

Michael Palin Travelling to Work

Wed 22 October 7.30pm To celebrate the publication of his third volume of diaries, Travelling to Work, Michael Palin presents a brand new two-part stage show looking back at 25 years of exploring the world and nearly 50 years in radio, television, books and films. This is a whistle-stop tour of the globe, and a freewheeling look back at the other side of his life. Lots of memories with one thing in common: a love of laughter. Crucible Theatre £29.50

Robin Ince

Leashed

Blooming Buzzing Confusion

Fri 3 October 8.00pm

Rory McGrath and Philip Pope

Wed 1 October 8.00pm In a fast follow up to In (and out of) His Mind, Robin Ince continues to prod into our brains with a sharpened pencil to try and work out just how much free will anyone can have. Is anyone a freethinker? Looking at Milgram, McLuhan and experiments into the mind, Robin tries to work out if we can arm ourselves against mass media despots and live life pragmatically or will we always just be clumsy animals justifying each mistake with a well-honed alibi? Well, it will be something like that - basically, another night of shouting, gesticulating, gurning and enquiring - a curious mind and id on the rampage.

After a total run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2013, Evans is back with more ‘Sizzlingly entertaining, beautifully crafted, devastatingly funny gags’ (The Guardian). Star of Celebrity Mastermind, Live at the Apollo and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow Simon Evans is ‘A great craftsman of language… an evil delight’ (Chortle). Studio Theatre £14.50

Bridge Over Troubled Lager

Wed 8 October 8.00pm After their hit dad-rock album Dark Side of the Moob, Rory and Philip return to touring with an evening of sophisticated comedy and song. Expect wit, elegance and clever musical pastiche (but don’t worry, there’s also silliness and filth). This is the show where music and comedy meet, have a few drinks, fight, then stagger home singing hits from the ’60s. Something to offend everybody.

Wed 15 October 8.00pm Paul Sinha is a stand-up comedian, but you might know him as ‘The Sinnerman’ from ITV’s The Chase or you might know him from your local doctor’s surgery or from Mastermind or University Challenge – The Professionals. He is many things: quiz geek, doctor, Gemini, sports fanatic, and, according to Jim Davidson, ‘an Indian poof’, but first and foremost he is a standup comedian. A bloody great stand-up comedian. ‘What good stand-up should be. Hilariously funny, passionate and articulate’ Chortle Studio Theatre £14.00 Concessions and Centre Stage Members £2.00 off

Lady Like

Thu 16 October 8.00pm Award-winning comedian Susan Calman is embarking on her first ever UK tour. If you’ve seen her before, Lady Like will be a reassuring couple of hours spent with the woman her neighbours call ‘the mad cat lady’. If you don’t know who she is, Lady Like will, at the very least, make you feel better about your own life. A show about being older, wiser and liking yourself whatever anyone might say. Comedy from Calman, as seen and heard on The News Quiz, Calman is Convicted (Best Radio Comedy 2013 – Writers Guild Award), QI, Have I Got News for You, Fresh Meat and Would I Lie To You. ‘Confident, compact…cracking’ ★★★★ Evening Standard Studio Theatre £15.00 Concessions and Centre Stage Members £2.00 off

Adapted by Stephen Mallatratt From the novel by Susan Hill

As they reach further into his darkest memories the borders between make believe and reality begin to blur and the flesh begins to creep… Now celebrating its 25th year in the West End, over 7 million people have lived to tell the tale of one of the most chilling and successful theatre events ever staged.

Wed 10 December 2014 – Sat 3 January 2015 Do you want to hear a true story?

Do you want to hear a happy story? Then imagine a real Prince and a real Princess, oh and a pea! In this new fantastical adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson’s The Princess and the Pea, Mike Kenny and the inventive tutti frutti team create a funny, original, beautiful retelling of this familiar tale. Not for the faint hearted… fake Princesses… or those who have trouble sleeping at night! A transaction fee of £1.50 (£1.00 online) applies to all bookings made at the Box Office (excl. cash).

Moscow City Ballet

Blood Brothers

Swan Lake

Tue 13 – Sat 24 January

Tue 6 – Sat 10 January

Written by Willy Russell, the legendary Blood Brothers tells the captivating and moving tale of twins who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with fateful consequences. The superb score includes Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True.

Moscow City Ballet is currently at its outstanding artistic best – winning new invitations to perform internationally. Swan Lake is the signature piece of their entire repertoire. The orchestra, choreography, interpretation, beauty and outstanding virtuoso performance wins repeatedly rave reviews. Tchaikovsky’s ‘big story ballets’ are the essence of Russian culture composed, choreographed and premiered in Russia. Seeing performances by the Moscow City dancers never fails to add that magical ingredient of Russian soul. ‘Liliya Oryekhova plays the dual roles of Odette / Odile. Her amazing mannerisms and her ability as a dancer confirm that she is, most definitely, a prima ballerina of the highest order’ WhatsOnStage

Few musicals have received quite such acclaim as the multi award-winning Blood Brothers. Bill Kenwright’s production surpassed 10,000 performances in London’s West End, one of only three musicals ever to achieve that milestone. It has been affectionately christened the Standing Ovation Musical, as inevitably it; ‘brings the audience cheering to its feet and roaring its approval’ Daily Mail. ‘A triumphant evening...Unmissable and unbeatable’ The Spectator
