stage door bar Theatre props store, cabinet of curiousities, a shabby-cheek make-under or just plain odd? There’s plenty to talk about, confuse and amuse in the Stage Door Bar, all lovingly created by Wotzat Installations. To complement the stunning sea views across Lyme Bay we’ve recently unveiled a new range of drinks too, with particular emphasis on locally sourced tipples at affordable prices. Come and see what everyone is talking about. For all of our evening performances the bar is open for pre-theatre drinks, an interval libation or a post-show dram.

“Back by popular demand, the fiery vivacity and aweinspiring musicianship of the finest purveyors of Eastern European gypsy music this side of a Lada scrap heap will leave you with a grin on your face and rhythm in your feet…” The Times

Visit Alaska, one of the last great frontiers of the modern world. A magnificent wilderness of untamed beauty where you can be at one with nature. Visit Alaska, a desolate wasteland at the borderline of civilisation. A place where you can easily lose your way, your bearings and your very mind! Visit Alaska, a tragi-comic riot of Pythonesque dottiness guaranteed to leave you spellbound. Boldly following in the intrepid footsteps of Bear Grylls and Ray Mears and using film, firelight, shadow and one hell of a soundtrack, Alaska is a new play brought to you by Giles King, Craig Johnson (performers) and Carl Grose (writer). You will have seen them in Kneehigh Theatre classics such as The King of Prussia, The Bacchae, Tristan and Yseult and The Red Shoes. We’re very excited to be welcoming them and their latest adventure to the Marine Theatre this February.

In a country with a rapidly aging population, where pension plans and life plans don’t match up, who’s going to look after our parents? What are you going to do with yours? Using puppets, Super 8 projection, upsidedown physicality and a Space Hopper, ‘My Baby Just Cares For Me’ charts the erratic course of a daughter’s love for her father through thick and thin. Snatching unexpected warmth and humour from the jaws of a desperate and complex situation, this is a sharp, yet sensitive show with a sizzling soundtrack.

Three old friends. One remarkable day. For Ted, Danny and Charlotte, life will never be the same again. A day-glo trip through the parks and raves and cafes of South London, where life is what you make it. The words of Kate Tempest paint a picture of lives less ordinary in an unforgiving world, sound-tracked by an exhilarating score. A play about life, love and losing your mind. Kate Tempest is the UK’s most exciting performance poet, currently serving up a storm in the UK hip-hop scene with her band Sound Of Rum. Brought to the Marine thanks to a collaboration between some of the country’s best theatre producers, “Wasted” is her debut play and features her trademark lyrical ferocity in a dynamic theatrical staging.

Find out at the Marine Theatre this March!

Music

When we spotted Sam Carter on Jools Holland’s “Later” last Autumn we couldn’t wait to get him along to the Marine Theatre. And we’re not the only ones who’ve been impressed. Since he released his debut album “Keepsakes” in 2009, there has been a mounting excitement about this songwriter, guitarist and singer. At the time he was an Emerging Artist In Residence at The Southbank Centre in London. Since then he has supported Bellowhead on a UK tour, performed in the Middle East and UK with the British Council’s “Shifting Sands” project, played to thousands as part of the all-star lineup for the tour “The Lady: A Homage To Sandy Denny”, performed on major venue and festival stages in his own right and walked away with the Horizon Award for best newcomer at the 2010 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. And his arrival hasn’t gone unnoticed by some of the finest singer-songwriters and guitarists in the world today. In the three years since “Keepsakes” was released he has performed alongside Nic Jones, Martin Carthy, Richard Thompson, Chris Wood and Martin Simpson.

“Three years on [from his debut album Keepsakes] the exemplary musicianship is bolder, the vocal arrangements more striking…as penetrating as Richard Thompson’s best work” 9/10 Uncut

James Sherwood is one of the UK’s foremost musical comedians. If you like your comedy tuneful, or your music hilarious, his latest show is a must-see. A veteran of six consecutive Edinburgh Festivals and a regular presence across television and radio, James taps out his “acclaimed, inspired ditties” (Three Weeks) in a beguiling evening of comic song and biting satire at the Marine Theatre.

“His entire set, from humorous songs to witty repartee, is beautifully, painstakingly sculpted. There’s no flab and no filler” The Scotsman “A distinguished gentleman comic if ever there was one… he rarely strays from his piano stool, where he knocks out a series of imaginative musical jokes and beautifully-crafted original comedy songs. But don’t mistake him for some tired old cabaret act. He may look old-fashioned, but the material he offers is fresh, contemporary and pin-sharp original” The Guardian www.sherwoodcomedy.com

Date:

A full moon rises over a windswept cottage in the middle of nowhere. The children are in bed, the wine is breathing nicely and the dinner is in the oven...

Time:

It’s Gordon and Celia’s wedding anniversary. They’ve asked their oldest and dearest friends Zach and Jane down from London. The only problem is that Zach and Jane aren’t Zach and Jane anymore. Jane has gone and Julia – a twenty-five-year-old French burlesque dancer – has taken her place.

Sun 28th April

tbc Tickets: Full Price: £10.00 Concessions: £8.50 TheatreFriends discount available

What starts as a simple celebration quickly unravels with one revelation after another until we become aware that no one has been telling the truth to anyone about anything for a very long time. Written entirely in his characteristic verse by BBC 6 Music poet in residence Murray Lachlan Young, The Incomers will have you gasping and roaring with laughter in equal measures! “A Noel Coward for the Noel Gallagher generation” The Times on playwright Murray Lachlan Young
