Good Luck to You, Leo Grande (15) Presented by Bungay Film Club


Theatre Production

Tuesday 10th January, 7.30pm • £5 & £2.50 (Bungay Film Club members)

A Norwich hotel room provides the setting for this unusual, thoughtful and very funny drama. Emma Thompson plays Nancy, a widow adrift after a successful career and motherhood. At 55, she has never experienced sexual happiness. Enter Daryl McCormack, as Leo, the male sex worker she hires to show her what she has been missing. This kind-hearted and, at times, poignant comedy upends cinematic stereotypes about sex work while exploring preconceptions about sexuality. Directed by Sophie Hyde. Written by Katy Brand. UK/US 2022. 97 minutes.

Great Expectations Presented by Circle 67 Friday 13th January, 7.30pm • £10 in advance, £12 on the door

A new dramatisation of Charles Dickens’ great novel. A young boy in a deserted graveyard at sunset, a vicious convict on the loose.

We hope you will reflect on its title: what you wish for may depend on the values you cherish; these may change over time.

Kerry Timewell, Polly Dunbar & Marie Van Berkel: The Illustrators Eye Running until 19th January East Anglia is becoming something of an epicentre for illustrators, illustrative artists and authors and the Fisher Theatre, having hosted two events in recent years, ‘Bewitched’ (2019), an exhibition of Children’s Book Art, and ‘The Dog Eared Festival’ (2022), with its talks and demonstrations about children’s book illustration, has been particularly closely involved in this process. Now, two of the illustrators who appeared in ‘Bewitched’ are back here again for this Christmas show - Polly Dunbar and Kerry Timewell – and are joined by a new name, Marie Van Berkel, from Norwich. They are all illustrative artists in their own right using printmaking and painting to create original dreamscape scenes. Between them they have created a wonderfully wide-ranging and hugely enjoyable show, perfect for the Christmas season, full of the rich imagination and visual wit of these three, hugely distinguished, artists.

Darren McMorran: Experiencing the Human 5th February – 30th March With their brightly coloured dots, swirling patterns, thick stripes, pencil scribbles and cracked paint, Darren McMorran’s exuberant and exhilarating abstract paintings are, as he himself says, “not about literal observations but experiences as I have remembered them. I paint the range and flux of human experience as I recall it because I want an intense and personal relationship with my work. Through memories I can express human experience via my own perceptions – absorbed, filtered and rearranged.” The outcomes are unashamedly colourful and textural, drawing the viewer closer into them, inviting them to be inquisitive and engage in a personal conversation with the subjects of his work. “I live in Suffolk and my everyday experiences with the people of East Anglia are a constant inspiration.”
