JEREMY HARDY LIVE 2016 Jeremy Hardy is in his fourth decade as a stand‑up this year. That’s a more dramatic way of saying he started 32 years ago and, without a lottery win, probably has at least another 32 years to go. In 2014, the tenth series of Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation was broadcast on Radio 4. He is also well known for his appearances on The News Quiz and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue. Indeed, Alan Bennett recently said he likes him “but he’s only on the radio”. However, Jeremy isn’t only on the radio, his television credits include: Jack Dee’s Election Helpdesk (BBC2), QI (BBC1), Mock The Week (BBC2), Grumpy Old Men (BBC1), Back In The Day (BBC2), Not Tonight With John Sergeant (BBC2). He is also on the road all year round and has never stopped doing live shows since 1984. After briefly hibernating in the winter, he’s back out on the road in 2016. 14+ (Parental Guidance) Likely to be swearing and adult content www.jeremyhardy.co.uk

As the Island’s only forum for developing new work, the atmosphere is fun and informal, crackling with creativity. What it lacks in elaborate sets and overall polish, it more than makes up for in raw talent. Plays debuted at Plays Rough have gone on to London theatres and UK festivals. 36

SIKES AND NANCY IN THE STUDIO

Direct from the West End. James Swanton enacts the compelling and terrible story of Dickens’ most terrible murder. His tour‑de‑force performance of this masterpiece of gothic melodrama sees him transform seamlessly from the revolting Fagin to the unfortunate Nancy; from the righteous Brownlow to the ferocious and terrifying Sikes. This bravura storytelling is exciting, dark, physical and brutish. Charles Dickens adapted Sikes & Nancy from the grislier material in Oliver Twist. These notorious readings shocked audiences into silence; women would scream and faint. ‘I shall tear myself to pieces,’ Dickens vowed before one performance. In fact, it is now thought that the strain of the readings hastened Dickens’ early death.

Swanton is “aJames fearless actor who in Sikes & Nancy pushes the art of physical expression into fantastical areas of theatre that are far too little explored. Simon Callow

CINDERELLA SCREENING

Witty, vibrant, glamorous and romantic, Alexei Ratmansky’s Cinderella will sweep you off your feet as this smash‑hit crowd‑pleaser comes to cinemas to bewitch us in an exclusive encore season.
 As Cinderella works to support her stepmother and sisters, she watches as they prepare for a magnificent ball being held by the Prince of the land, knowing that they will not permit her to attend. When they leave she imagines herself dancing at the ball in a beautiful gown wishing that she could attend. The Fairy Godmother takes pity on her and visits Cinderella to transform her rags into a ball gown, transporting her to the ball and warning her that the magic will vanish at Midnight. At the ball Cinderella meets the Prince and it is love at first sight – but at the strike of twelve midnight she runs from 42

CAROLS BY CANDLELIGHT WITH THE LOCRIAN ENSEMBLE

The Locrian Ensemble are firmly established as one of Britain’s most popular touring groups. They have a host of television and film credits to their name and have recently topped the classical charts with their playing for Debbie Wiseman’s BBCTV score of “Wolf Hall”. They enjoy “a formidable international reputation” (Evening Standard). Their Christmas show is the hottest ticket in their calendar. In lavish period costume, and in front of an evocative candlelit setting, these charismatic performers perform favourites including carols, string medleys of familiar Christmas tunes, and seasonal surprises. They are joined by the evergreen Jill Washington, West End star soprano of “Phantom of the Opera”, who sings tunes from Handel’s “Messiah” to “White Christmas” the 12 Days of Christmas and “Walking in the Air”,

accompanied by shimmering strings and thrilling harp playing. This is the ideal way to get into the true spirit of Christmas. This magical evening will be the best Christmas present you can give.

ROYAL SHAKESPEARE COMPANY

THE TEMPEST LIVE SCREENING

Simon Russell Beale returns to the RSC after 20 years to play Prospero in this groundbreaking production directed by Artistic Director Gregory Doran. On a distant island a man waits. Robbed of his position, power and wealth, his enemies have left him in isolation. But this is no ordinary man, and this no ordinary island. Prospero is a magician, able to control the very elements and bend nature to his will. When a sail appears on the horizon, he reaches out across the ocean to the ship that carries the men who wronged him. Creating a vast magical storm he wrecks the ship and washes his enemies up on the shore. When they wake they fi nd themselves lost

on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems. In a unique partnership with Intel, the production will be using today’s most advanced technology in a bold reimagining of Shakespeare’s magical play, creating an unforgettable theatrical experience.

In Founder Victor Smirnov-Golovanov’s staging, all the hustle and bustle of Renaissance Verona is brought vividly to life in this fast-moving, powerful production.
