What happens when your life suddenly seems to mirror that of your musical hero? Greg Moncur is convinced that his obsession with singer Johnny Cash is dictating the events in his own life. Coincidence? Or is there a master plan? When Greg is arrested for possession of drugs he is sure he is right, but can he convince the police sergeant of his theory and that he isn’t mad?

Find out in this light-hearted comedy incorporating live performance of some of Johnny Cash’s greatest tracks in this original tribute to The Man in Black.

‘A superlative performance; it’s clear that Rodden is a singer and an actor in equal measure, not just an actor who can hold a tune.’ Fringe Guru Brighton 2017 ★★★★★

‘A Hidden Gem’ Edinburgh Fringe Review 2016

What if you woke up one morning and realised that your life was actually a computer game?

Your Dad's just died, your Uncle's married your Mum and is hell bent on world domination, while the person you have a crush on turns out to be a samurai sword wielding super hero. Oh, and your Dad's now a singing ghost.

Inspired by films like Scott Pilgrim Vs The World and with references to almost every videogame ever made, Super Hamlet 64 is fast paced retelling of Shakespeare's most famous play, full of retro animation, spoken word, live music and comedy songs.

Videogame design is all about giving the player the illusion of meaningful choice. Hamlet is about a boy trapped by tragic circumstances, unable to choose anything.

Coupling Shakespeare's soliloquies with modern poetry, and exploring ideas of adulthood, ambition, gender and our fragile relationship with technology.

Praise from reviewers:

"Day never ceased to impress, like a man possessed at times, effortlessly switching between characters...the best original play I have seen." ***** - Theatre Bath

"Day's antics are joyfully creative, whether he's flinging an imaginary banana in a round of Mario Kart or apologising to unseen enemies as he bounces on their heads" - Fringe Guru

“Gamers love the gaming jokes, Shakespeare lovers adore the Shakespeare jokes, and non gamers enjoy the mix of video projection, physical comedy and spoken word.” - Buxton Fringe

 

Edward Day is a trans/non-binary spoken word artist, animator and theatre maker from Swindon. He trained at Lecoq and Alra has performed in a wealth of Shakespeare and physical theatre, with notable roles including Bottom, Malvolio, Queen Elizabeth, Hamlet, Prospero and King Lear.

Sixteen years. 13 women’s refuges. 687 lists. 12 productions of The Vagina Monologues. And 1 suitcase. Now she’s starting all over again. Again.

Cash is a self-confessed “refuge connoisseur”. She knows the refuges with the best counsellors, clothing donations and the ones closest to the heartiest of ‘all you can eat’ buffets. Over the past 16 years she has escaped to refuges from Aldershot to Southend-on-Sea. And now she’s just set foot in what she has decided is her final refuge. It’s crumbling round the edges and she shares her room with rats - it isn’t exactly how she imagined escaping from abuse, but now she has a young daughter to consider she’s out of options.

Inspired by real life events, this darkly humorous, spoken-word performance provides snapshots of life in a women’s refuge, as Cash attempts to rebuild her life from scratch in a world where an Argos suitcase contains everything she needs to start again.

The performance will be followed by a talk lead by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, with local journalists and experts about funding cuts to local refuges across the region.

Total running time: 90 mins

The performance contains descriptions of violence and strong language. Not suitable for under 16 years old.

A collection for a local domestic violence provision will take place on the night.

It is 6th April 1895 and Oscar Wilde waits alone for the knock on the door that will bring an arrest warrant for the charges of Gross Indecency against him.

This exciting one man show allows Oscar the freedom to talk openly about his relationships with men, the failing relationship with his wife and his enduring love for the destructive but beautiful Lord Alfred ‘Bosie’ Douglas.

Abandoned by her husband, Amanda Wingfield comforts herself with recollections of her earlier life when she was persued by all men who saw her.

Tom, suffocated by his mother's loneliness, escapes their cramped appartment for a movie theatre every night to immerse himself in adventures never taken.

Laura, the shy and crippled daughter, has only her glass menagerie of animals and her memories.

Desperate to find her daughter a husband, Amanda forces Tom to invite a 'gentleman caller' for dinner, but when the gentleman arrives the fragile dreams of all three are shattered with consequences they may never escape.

Schoolhouse Productions return with Tennessee Williams' stunning play The Glass Menagerie.  Set in the dream-like world of memory, it's a piece that has stood the test of time, and harkens back to the Old South with Williams' signature touch of desperation and nostalgia.

All tickets include a £1 admin fee
