ROB GEE – FORGET ME NOT – THE ALZHEIMER’S WHODUNNIT

http://robgee.co.uk

Jim’s wife, a patient on a dementia ward, has died from what appears to be natural causes. Jim is a retired police detective and he smells a rat. He’s determined to solve one last murder. The problem is, he also has dementia. It’s a case worthy of the greatest detective mind. But his will have to do. Age 14+. Created by ex-psych nurse Rob Gee (“A witty, skilful storyteller” Chortle), fresh from his award-winning North American tour. **** “Hilarious and heartbreaking” (Victoria Times) “A remarkable piece of writing… with his shrewd mix of humor and heart, Gee strikes storytelling gold.” (Orlando Sentinel) Fri 26 Jan 8pm Harley Village Hall SY5 6LP Tickets: 01952 510422 £10 Sat 27 Jan 7.30pm Talbot Theatre Whitchurch SY13 2BY T  ickets: 01948 660660 / 07506 724572 £10/5/25 Sat 3 Feb 8pm Meole Brace Peace Memorial Hall SY3 9JP Tickets: 01743 235384 / Meole Village Stores £10

BUFFALO GALS MIRACULOUS MEDICINE SHOW www.buffalogals.co.uk

Hurry, hurry, hurry! Step right up and see the show! Styled after the old medicine shows that rolled into town and attracted and held their audiences with a combination of music and far-fetched spectacle, while selling seemingly miraculous elixirs. Buffalo Gals creates the atmosphere of fun, excitement and frivolity that surrounds the medicine show, all wrapped around the great old-time music and amazing percussive step-dance of the American country tradition. For adults and older children.

Was it a dream or did I hear a talking bean? Jack lives on a small farm with his mum and very little to eat. He likes to talk to the birds, his cow and anyone who will listen. Imagine his surprise when he swaps his cow for some magic beans and starts to hear a whispering in the breeze and a giant rumble in the sky… Charming and inventive with plenty of interaction, an enormous beanstalk, bags of gold and a smelly old giant.

LOVE IS THICKER THAN WATER 15 Directors: Emily Harris, Ate de Jong

Johnny Flynn, Lydia Wilson, Henry Goodman, Juliet Stevenson and Ellie Kendrick 101 mins; Comedy/Drama/Romance

Taking its cue from Romeo and Juliet, Love is Thicker Than Water is a tale of lovers from different sides of the tracks. Vida comes from a well-heeled London family, whereas Arthur is a bike messenger from a working-class Welsh mining town. Utterly in love, their relationship is nevertheless tested when their wildly different worlds collide. Sensitive, quirky, always uncompromisingly truthful and interspersed with surprising animation, Love is Thicker Than Water is a touching take on whether love trumps familial bonds.

LIVE PERFORMANCES

WORDS AND WEBS HAGS, HARPIES & HARRIDANS Jane Flood (hag/trollop) and Rina Vergano (harpy/harridan) celebrate the powerful archetype of the older woman in myth, legend, epic and fairy-tale, and her role as activist and fierce guardian of all that is precious and endangered. An other-wordly brew of storytelling, spoken word, rants and song – a taste of dark and dangerous delights. Age 14+ “These two seasoned performers open up a box of bittersweet stories, poems, songs and humour with which to tantalise their audience. Dip in, and enjoy.” (Bristol 24/7).

Robert Gulaczyk, Aidan Turner, Helen McCrory, Eleanor Tomlinson 93 mins; Drama/Animation

Loving Vincent is a biographical drama film about the life of painter Vincent van Gogh. It is the world’s first fully oil-painted animated film, and brings his artwork to life in an exploration of the death of one of history’s most celebrated artists. A true labour of love, written and directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman, each of the film’s 65,000 frames is an oil painting on canvas, using the same technique as Van Gogh, created by a team of 115 painters.

WORKLIGHT THEATRE LABELS www.worklighttheatre.co.uk

This intimate solo show uses writer and performer Joe Sellman-Leava’s experiences of mixed heritage and racism to unpick the curiosities and fears around immigration, as well as the ongoing refugee crisis. Amid a cacophony of statistics and sound bites Labels offers an honest, human story about multicultural Britain. Labels enjoyed a sell-out run and standing ovations at Edinburgh Fringe two years running, and has won multiple awards. A show to make you both laugh and think. For age 14+ Winner: Scotsman Fringe First Award 2015 Winner: Holden Street Theatre Award 2015 Shortlisted: Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award 2015 Fri 16 Mar 7.30pm Goodrich Village Hall HR9 6HX Tickets: 01600 891421 £10/5

LOST DOG – PARADISE LOST (LIES UNOPENED BESIDE ME) www.lostdogdance.co.uk

An astounding show: a one-man staging of Milton’s epic Paradise Lost, combining theatre, comedy and movement, in a journey through the story of the creation of everything, condensed into 75 minutes. A single man plays all the characters, creates all the scenes and, despite his best efforts, falls a little short of perfection. A show for anyone who has created anything (child, garden, paper aeroplane) and then watched it spiral out of control. For age 14+ Winner: ‘Most Innovative Rural Touring Show 2017’. “Do not miss this brilliant dance/theatre performance, it went straight into my top 5 shows ever” (Sian Kerry, Arts Alive) Wed 21 Mar 7.30pm All Stretton Village Hall SY6 6JR Tickets: 01694 723378; catelatchford@hotmail.co.uk £10/7

Breathe is based on the true story of producer Jonathan Cavendish’s own parents. It is an inspirational and highly emotional celebration of bravery and human possibility, a love story about living every breath as though it’s your last. Adventurous and charismatic, Robin Cavendish has his whole life ahead of him when he is paralysed by polio whilst in Africa in 1958. Against all advice, Robin’s wife Diana brings him home from hospital where her devotion and witty determination transcends his disability. Together they refuse to be imprisoned by his suffering; dazzling others with their humour, courage and lust for life.

Two lively and engaging stories that will sit either side of an interval.

LIVE SATELLITE SCREENINGS A chance to access performances from world class companies – the National Theatre, Royal Opera House, Royal Shakespeare Company, and The Royal Ballet. It’s not quite like being there, but it’s much better than not seeing it at all! The atmosphere is infectious, the pre-show chats are insightful and you do feel like you are part of the audience. Why not give it a try? You get a great view for a fraction of the original theatre price and it’s so much cheaper than going to London! Available variously in the following venues:
