Tickets £49, Groups of 6+ £46 (inc fees)

Rich Hall’s critically acclaimed new show begins its second leg of touring. There has never been a better time to be an American comedian in the UK. Hall’s precision dismantling of the tenuous relationship between two countries is as freewheeling and deadly accurate as ever. His BBC Four documentaries, most recently Rich Hall’s Countrier Than You and Rich Hall’s Presidential Grudge Match and BBC Radio 4 series Rich Hall’s (US Election) Breakdown have built him a new legion of followers, as have appearances on Have I Got News For You and QI. But if you’ve only ever seen Hall on TV, you’ve short-changed yourself. “As close as it gets to a guaranteed good show” - Scotland on Sunday

George Egg - DIY Chef Sat 18 May, 7.45pm • Studio Award winning comedian George Egg returns to demonstrate more live cooking and laugh-outloud comedy.

In the way he can take imaginative, surreal ideas and hone delightfully silly jokes from them, Paul was nominated for Best New show at Leicester Comedy Festival 2017. Here, he trials his new hour of stand-up before heading to Edinburgh.

Glenn Moore Edinburgh Comedy Award 2018 nominee Glenn Moore (Mock the Week, Absolute Radio and Stand Up Central) presents a work-in-progress new show full of the distinctive jokes and offbeat gags we’ve come to accept.

Encompassing five decades from the ‘70s to the present day, tracks include unique reworkings of tracks such as ‘Broken Wings’ by Mr. Mister and ‘I’m Not in Love’ by 10cc, as well as favourites by Joni Mitchell, Ivan Lins and Pat Metheny. Claire Martin also remembers

legendary singer Lena Horne with her own arrangement of ‘Come Runnin’’ and pays tribute to Norway’s Karin Krog with ‘Cherry Tree Song’. Martin’s long-term commitment to championing the work of songwriters was recognized by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (BASCA) with a Gold Badge Award in October 2018 and in November she was awarded her eighth British Jazz Award for Vocalist of the Year. “She ranks amongst the four or five finest female jazz vocalists on the planet” - Jazz Times USA

No one could have predicted that, 40 years on, they’d still be dazzling audiences with their showmanship and virtuosity. About 20 albums and thousands of gigs later, they’ve earned a reputation around the world as one of the finest exponents of the blues tradition in all its forms. With this line-up, it’s hardly surprising.

The Spooky Men’s Chorale Thu 11 Jul, 7.30pm • Main House The Spooky Men’s Chorale is a vast, rumbling, steam powered and black clad vocal behemoth, seemingly accidentally capable of rendering audiences moist eyed with mute appreciation or haplessly gurgling with merriment. Based on the twin pillars of grand foolishness and the quest for the perfect subwoofer-rattling boofchord, the Spooky Men seek to commentate on the absurdity and grandeur of the modern male armed only with their voices, a sly collection of hats and facial hair, and a twinkle in the eye. The Spooky Men have recorded six CDs: Tooled Up (2004), Stop Scratching It (2007), Deep (2009), Big (2011), The Spooky Man in History (2013), and Warm (2015). “Their tuning, timing and dynamics are impeccable” - The Independent

An Evening with Sunny Ormonde

Presented in partnership with Platform8

What Words Are Ours?

Wed 1 May, 7.45pm • Studio

Fri 17 May, 7.45pm • Studio

Sunny has been playing the outrageous and raunchy Lilian Bellamy in BBC Radio 4’s The Archers for the past 12 years and has become one of the listeners’ most favourite characters. Her antics have kept the nation entertained, whether it be riding round Ambridge on a Harley Davidson, drinking the bull and the cider shed dry with Eddie Grundy or absconding to Costa Rica with her beloved and very wicked Tiger. And then of course there is Tiger’s brother Paul… Sunny will fill you in on all the behind the scenes stories about the world’s longest running soap opera - an evening of anecdotes, banter and favourite pieces from Sunny’s long and distinguished acting career - humorous and touching in turn. Includes a question and answer session with the audience about the making of The Archers – now in its 61st year!

A bold, playful and joyous poetry-cabaret What Words Are Ours? features some of the most innovative and daring UK artists working with text, poetry and spoken word. Showcasing a luscious variety of artists What Words Are Ours? combines drag, rap, experimental sound, punk poems, political satire and British Sign Language poetry, as well as more traditional spoken word artists. What Words Are Ours? is about language and power. Words have kept us down, held us back and locked us up, but at the same time words have freed us; we have found ourselves and reclaimed ourselves with words. The words we speak, the language we use and how we communicate is inherently political and intrinsically about power. WWAO is a raucous yet tender night-out where we can dive into these issues together.

Wed 22 - Sat 25 May, 7.30pm • Main House Plus 2.30pm Sat matinee

Wed 5 - Sat 8 Jun, 7.45pm • Studio Plus 2.30pm Sat matinee

History nowadays is not a matter of conviction. It’s a performance. It’s entertainment. And if it isn’t, make it so.” Set in the 1980s, Alan Bennett’s wildly popular dark comedy, The History Boys, tells the story of eight students as they finish sixth form and face the adult world. Returning to school for one more term after their top A level grades, the group learns about life, love and literature from their unusual English teacher, in preparation for university entrance exams. How does one teach history, in fact what even is history? Staff rivalries, obsessions with Oxbridge, adolescent emotions, and a very young new supply teacher provoke a riot in an otherwise uniform Grammar. The History Boys is presented by Lamphouse Local, a new project by Lamphouse Theatre to bring together professional theatre makers and local young performers, creating quality, genderblind theatre. This amateur production of The History Boys is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French LTD

Unknown dramatist Clifford Anderson has sent his new thriller to award-winning Broadway author Sidney for comment. Without a success to his credit for some years, Sidney plots with his reluctant wife Myra about how best to plagiarize ‘Deathtrap’ and when Clifford turns up to discuss the play with the ‘Master’, events take a sinister turn. This play holds the record for the longest running comedy thriller on Broadway running from February 1978 until January 1982, clocking up 1793 performances. It was nominated for four Tony’s, Broadway’s equivalent of the Oscar, including one for Best Play. It has been staged twice in London, from 1978 until 1981 and again in 2010. It was filmed in 1982 with Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve playing the male leads. This ingeniously constructed play which is essentially a play within a play, “offers a rare and skilful blending of two priceless theatrical ingredients - gasp-inducing thrills and spontaneous laughter” says Samuel French, the play’s rights holder. The plot twists and turns right until the very end with surprises in every scene and will keep you gripped until the curtain falls.
