ROH Encore: La Boheme '20 (12A)

ROH Encore: La Boheme '20

Puccini’s opera of young love in 19th-century Paris is packed with beautiful music, including lyrical arias, celebratory choruses for Act II’s evocation of Christmas Eve in the Latin Quarter and a poignant final scene over which the composer himself wept.


Richard Jones’s character-led production perfectly captures La bohème’s mixture of comedy, romance and tragedy, with striking designs by Stewart Laing. The cast features some of the greatest interpreters of Puccini’s bohemian lovers performing today, as well as former members of The Royal Opera’s Jette Parker Young Artists Programme

EOS: Leonardo The Works

Marking the 500th anniversary of Leonardo’s death


Leonardo da Vinci is acclaimed as the world’s favourite artist. Many TV shows and feature films have showcased this extraordinary genius but often not examined closely enough is the most crucial element of all: his art. Leonardo’s peerless paintings and drawings will be the focus of Leonardo: The Works, as EXHIBITION ON SCREEN presents every single attributed painting, in Ultra HD quality, never seen before on the big screen. Key works include The Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, Lady with an Ermine, Ginevra de’ Benci, Madonna Litta, Virgin of the Rocks, and more than a dozen others.


This film also looks afresh at Leonardo’s life – his inventiveness, his sculptural skills, his military foresight and his ability to navigate the treacherous politics of the day – through the prism of his art. To be released on the 500th anniversary of his death, this is the definitive film about Leonardo: the first to truly tell the whole story.

Comedy Club Feb20

Teignmouth Comedy Club - a great night of comedy with 3 comedians and compere.

Headliner - Michael Fabbri

By turns thought-provoking and outrageous, Michael Fabbri is one of the circuit’s most fascinating acts. Since his Edinburgh Fringe show Dumbing Up became a massive hit in 2008, he has performed at the biggest comedy clubs throughout the world, alongside (to name a few) Micky Flanagan, Lucy Porter and Stephen K Amos. He has worked as a writer for TV and radio and his own series, Dyslexicon, was recently broadcast on BBC Radio 4.

“Startlingly insightful.” The Guardian

“Intelligence in spades, consummate idiot savant.” The List


Support - Charmian Hughes

Charmian has played everywhere, from prisons to the Houses of Parliament, and was christened comedy’s ‘mad auntie on acid’ by TheatreView magazine. She is a product of the Alternative Comedy revolution of the 1980s although - unlike those burned-out stars - Charmian’s gentle, wise, anecdotal  comedy is just reaching its peak today.

“Captivating storyteller, irresistible performer” - The Scotsman



Support - Chris Brooker

Described only half-accurately as comedy's ginger viking, Chris has taken his brand of comedy and compering all over the UK as well to the US and Canada. His infectious energy and enthusiasm sweeps through a room like an irresistible force, and the combination of original material and inspired improvisation means that you’ll never see the same routine twice.

“The best act of the night, his quick wit silencing hecklers and getting plenty of laughs.” Manchester Evening News

Jamie Smith's MABON

Jamie Smith's MABON

The Last Huzzah!


The music of Jamie Smith’s Mabon is well described as Original, Interceltic, World Music.  Composed by frontman Jamie Smith, and brought to life by five highly accomplished musicians, it draws inspiration directly from the traditional folk music of the Celtic countries: a true exploration of forms and styles found in Celtic music and their forging into something bold and new.  Through a myriad of twists and turns, from thoughtful lyrics to joyful jigs, here is a band that can take you on an emotional journey: expect to witness the joy of creating music expressed in dynamic, virtuosic performance.


But as all good things do, they change and morph, and so it is with this happy band of mates. 2020 will see the band perform their last shows, both venue and festival, before turning to new pastures, putting on slippers, raising the pipe and following different paths. No 'musical differences' here, just a need to move on and try different things - of which i'm sure members will be only too happy to let you know about as the time comes.

Its been a remarkable 21 years, and all the more unusual because it has seen the band rise to the forefront of live music shows across the world - but without the normal backup of huge record company input, media storms and any form of musical compromise!

Enjoy the last months of this amazing band and catch them at one of the shows in 2020!

Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope

Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope

Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope is a solo show which debuted to rave reviews at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival. It immediately transferred to a run at the off-West End St. James Theatre, and has toured the UK ever since. Touring the UK throughout 2019 / 2020.


Naked Hope depicts the legendary Quentin Crisp at two distinct phases of his extraordinary life. Firstly in the late 1960s in his filthy Chelsea flat (“Don’t lose your nerve: after the first four years the dirt won’t get any worse”). Here Quentin surveys a lifetime of degradation and rejection. Repeatedly beaten for being flamboyantly gay as early as the 1930s, but also ostracised simply for daring to live life on his own terms.


The second part of the play transitions the audience to New York in the 1990s. Here a much older Quentin, finally embraced by society, regales the audience with his sharply-observed, hard-earned philosophy on how to have a lifestyle: “Life will be more difficult if you try to become yourself. But avoiding this difficulty renders life meaningless. So discover who you are. And be it. Like mad!”.


Naked Hope is a glorious, truthful and uplifting celebration of a genuinely unique human being, and of the urgent necessity to be yourself. Originally produced by Seabright Productions Ltd, and directed by Linda Marlowe, who also directed The Silence of Snow.

A Lesson From Auschwitz

A Lesson From Auschwitz

In 1941, Rudolf Höss, Commandant of the Nazi concentration camp known as Auschwitz, assembled his SS personnel in a secret meeting with the express purpose of introducing a new method for exterminating Europe's Jews: Zyklon B, a deadly poison gas. Every soldier in attendance was sworn to secrecy, and no one questioned its usage. No one except a lone Jewish prisoner, forced to participate and humiliated throughout; the very prisoner upon which this "lesson" would be demonstrated.


Based upon real events, 'A Lesson from Auschwitz' explores how and why the Nazis did what they did, shedding light on the mentality of the perpetrators and the disturbing reality of life in a death camp.


Praise for 'A Lesson from Auschwitz':


"as as piece of theatre it excels in practically every single way... an exceptional piece of work and a vital reminder that something like this can never be allowed to happen again."

Rating: ★★★★★

~Sophie Adnitt, BritishTheatre.com


"MAGNIFICENT... a powerfully realised drama that finds new angles on these events where so many have trod before... the most powerful refutation there could be of Holocaust denial... a majestic statement of the power of theatre"

Rating: ★★★★★

~Tim Hochstrasser, Plays To See


"Both Michael Shon and James Hyland are simply brilliant in their respective roles and deserve the highest of applause for these powerful performances... I honestly believe this was one of the most powerful and most important pieces of theatre I've ever seen... This production is the perfect way to remember and to honour those who tragically lost their lives."

~Chloe Fry, Centre Stage


"this production should be seen by all - especially in the light of recent events."

~Carolin Kopplin, UK Theatre Network


"James Hyland who plays "Höss" (as well as writing, directing and producing the piece) is superb as the sadistic commandant whilst giving us glimpses of the madness of the man... it's important that plays like this are seen by as many people as possible"

~Alan Fitter, London Theatre 1


"Michael Shon gives a powerful performance as Könisberg, a man who has been worn down by life in Auschwitz but who still retains his dignity... This is an incredibly powerful piece by Brother Wolf."

~Loitering in the Theatre


"An outstanding performance by Brother Wolf... an extremely powerful and thought provoking show. Long will it be remembered."

~Four Shires Magazine

Round The Horne 2020

All New Classic Radio Scripts For 2020

“Oh, Mr Horne! How bona to vada your dolly old eek!”

From the producers of the UK tours of The Goon Show and Hancock’s Half Hour comes another radio comedy classic live on stage.

From 1965 to 1968 there wasn’t a bigger radio programme in Britain than the ground-breaking Round the Horne.  For half-an-hour every Sunday afternoon, audiences of up to 15 million people would gather around the wireless to listen to Kenneth Horne and his merry crew get up to all sorts of mischief.

With its infamous movie spoofs and hilarious regular characters such as Rambling Sid Rumpo, Charles and Fiona, J. Peasemold Gruntfuttock, and Julian and Sandy, Round the Horne was one of the biggest and best radio comedy shows of all time, and still endures today, 50 years on.

So come and take a step back in time to the BBC’s Paris Studios and experience this comedy classic live.

EOS-Lucian Freud; A Self Portrait (12A)

EOS-Lucian Freud; A Self Portrait

For the first time in history the Royal Academy of Arts in London, in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, is bringing together Lucian Freud’s self-portraits.


The exhibition will display more than 50 paintings, prints and drawings in which this modern master of British art turned his unflinching eye firmly on himself. One of the most celebrated painters of our time, Lucian Freud is also one of very few 20th-century artists who portrayed themselves with such consistency.


Spanning nearly seven decades his self-portraits give a fascinating insight into both his psyche and his development as a painter, from his earliest portrait painted in 1939 to the final one executed 64 years later. When seen together, his portraits represent an engrossing study into the dynamic of ageing and the process of self-representation. This intensely compelling exhibition creates a unique opportunity for EXHIBITION ON SCREEN to reveal the life’s work of a master in one show.

Treasure

Treasure

When the storm comes, what will you hold on to?


Our lives are shaped by our connection to the sea. It flows through our memories and our history, with each turning tide a marker of the passing days, weeks and years.


Treasure is a fearless and physical contemporary dance work exploring our innate human fascination with our seas and coastlines. Through visceral, high-energy movement and intimate gestures, five dancers uncover fragments of a deeply-buried past, and confront an uncertain future shaped by climate change and pollution.


Treasure confronts uncomfortable truths of ecosystems on the brink of collapse, asking ‘what have we lost? And what is left to lose?’ This emotive work sets these urgent questions alongside a rush of explosive dance that celebrates the power and beauty of the seas.


“Beautiful and captivating choreography with such quality of movement and attention to detail. A stirring and lifting performance.”



“Amazing performance, wonderful music”



“Beautiful, powerful piece which was fabulous to witness – I hope you get this message to many more venues.”

Liz Berry - Headine Reading

Liz Berry - Headine Reading

Teignmouth has never seen or heard a poet like Liz Berry. Her readings are mesmeric, enchanting, unforgettable. It’s not just the quiet charisma of her stage presence or the consummate charm of her performance – the sheer quality of writing has lifted Liz Berry into the poetry stratosphere.

The Guardian described her first collection, Black Country, published by Chatto in 2014, as a ‘sooty, soaring hymn to her native West Midlands’. Among many plaudits, it won both the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Award and the Forward Prize for Best First Collection.

Her follow-up, The Republic of Motherhood (Chatto, 2018) was a Poetry Book Society Pamphlet choice, and the title poem won the Forward Prize for Best Single Poem of that year.

One reviewer wrote, ‘Her poems sing the body electric, from the joy and anguish of becoming a mother, through its darkest hours to its brightest days… They bear witness to that most tender of times – when a new life arrives, and everything changes.’ I crossed the border into the Republic of Motherhood/and found it a queendom, a wild queendom…This is a book which floodlights the miraculous territory every new mother finds herself having to explore. It’s mandatory reading for new fathers too. And from an earlier poem, Homing: For years you kept your accent / in a box beneath the bed / the lock rusted shut by hours of elocution… Part of Liz Berry’s unique charm is in the unaffected way she unlocks vowels ferrous as nails, consonants you could lick the coal from. ‘An extraordinary poet: passionate, precise, moving and deeply real’: AL Kennedy.

ROH Encore: Fidelio (12A)

ROH Encore: Fidelio

Beethoven’s only opera is a masterpiece, an uplifting story of risk and triumph. In this new production, conducted by Antonio Pappano,


Jonas Kaufmann plays the political prisoner Florestan, and Lise Davidsen his wife Leonore (disguised as ‘Fidelio’) who daringly sets out to rescue him. Set in strong counterpoint are the ingredients of domestic intrigue, determined love and the cruelty of an oppressive regime. The music is transcendent throughout and includes the famous Act I Quartet, the Prisoners’ Chorus and Florestan’s impassioned Act II cry in the darkness and vision of hope. Tobias Kratzer’s new staging brings together the dark reality of the French Revolutionary ‘Terror’ and our own time to illuminate Fidelio’s inspiring message of shared humanity.

The Phil Beer Band

The Phil Beer Band

The Phil Beer Band performs a unique blend of folk and roll trawled from Phil’s treasure trove of traditional tunes and American country rock



The highly popular line up comprises Gareth Turner, Steve Crickett, Emily Slade, Greg McDonald, Olivia Dunn and of course, Phil Beer and promises to deliver a lively cocktail of folk, rock, country and blues.


The Phil Beer Band evolved organically in the early to mid 90s at Maisemore in Gloucesteshire. It was a loose federation consisting of Phil Beer (Show of Hands), Nick Quarmby and Steve Crickett, all of whom lived close to each other, and melodeon player Gareth Turner from Northamptonshire. There was a need in the community for a band to play local events and ceilidhs and, following in the tradition set by the Albion Band (of which both Gareth and Phil were former members) the band always interspersed the dances with the odd song.


Basically, over a long period of time, it has evolved into a ‘Folk n Roll’ band with country rock overtones. It is the vehicle for Phil to return to the electric guitar and to have a good time with his mates. The band has seen many members and many tours but has been fairly inactive in the last five years. That’s about to change!

EOS- Easter In Art

The story of Christ’s death and resurrection has dominated western culture for the past 2000 years. It is perhaps the most significant historical event of all time, as recounted by the gospels but, equally, as depicted by the greatest artists in history.


From the triumphant to the savage, the ethereal to the tactile, some of western civilization’s greatest artworks focus on this pivotal moment. This beautifully crafted film explores the Easter story as depicted in art, from the time of the early Christians to the present day.


Shot on location in Jerusalem, United States and throughout Europe, the film explores the different ways artists have depicted the Easter story through the ages and thus depicts the history of us all.

An old-school genius and regular on TalkRadio, John is what’s known as a bullet-proof act. He’s known for his inventive writing, which covers the socio-economic structure of Thomas the Tank Engine's Isle of Sodor, how to annoy spiders, fatherhood and his experiences working on the cruise ship circuit. There’s no pretensions with John, who is a dyed-in-the-wool gag merchant with one of the highest hit rates of jokes per minute on the circuit.

"Slick and professional,  Newton is fast of mind and sharp of tongue like a craftsman should be" - The Comedy Pad


Support - David Tsonos

Material like Jerry Seinfeld, the delivery of Bobcat Goldthwaite and the voice of Joe Pesci – that’s Canada’s rising star David Tsonos. If you want serious comedy then David Tsonos is probably not your man. His observations are mined from such rich seams as being the youngest of five boys, babysitting disasters, trying to understand the British and a cat called Dave.

“He had the crowd roaring.” - The Stand


Support - Juliet Meyers

Juliet writes some of the best gags in the business – which is why she helps craft shows for Sarah Millican. Juliet’s humour is a surreal and sometimes forensic appraisal of how maddening it can be to navigate the world as a singleton while married friends are popping out babies, career advice and middle-class pretensions. Juliet is the Queen of the awkward situation.

ROH Encore: Cavalleria Rusticana/ Pagliacci (12A)

ROH Encore: Cavalleria Rusticana/ Pagliacci

Two opera classics are drawn together in this wonderfully observed re-creation of life in a south Italian village as a travelling theatre visits and emotions erupt. The award-winning production by Damiano Michieletto presents vividly the fast-moving, shocking events brought about by secret love and uncontrollable jealousy. The music is full of Italianate melody in the great choruses that bring the villagers together in celebration and revelry, alongside the solo arias and tense confrontations that provoke violence and tragedy. With thrilling singing and intense drama, ‘Cav and Pag’ distils into one wonderful night out, the enduring appeal of Italian opera in its most familiar form.

Sam Sweeney

Sam Sweeney

BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2019 – Nominated Musician Of The Year


After embarking on a solo career, releasing his debut solo album The Unfinished Violin on Island Records and touring it to sell-out crowds on the 2019 album launch tour, Sam is releasing his highly anticipated second solo album in Spring 2020.

Moving on from his five year connection to the First World War, which inspired his first album and captured the nation’s hearts through appearances on Antiques Roadshow and BBC Breakfast, alongside BBC Radio 2, 3, 4 and 6Music, Sam is moving on to making music on his own terms, with three of his favourite musicians and with a totally fresh approach and a big sound.

Sam and his new band are putting something into English music that has never been there before. This album has the swagger and groove of traditional English music with the huge sound, flare, energy and festival spirit of bands coming out of the Celtic and Scandinavian music scenes.

The new album occupies a very different sound world to The Unfinished Violin. Leaving string sections, piano and harmonium behind, the new band features acoustic and electric guitars and double bass.

•      Jack Rutter – guitar (Seth Lakeman, Jackie Oates, Moore Moss Rutter)

•      Ben Nicholls – double bass (Seth Lakeman, Nadine Shah, Kings Of The South Seas, Wild Rose, The Full English)

•      Louis Campbell – electric guitar (member of National Youth Folk Ensemble 2016-18, BBC Introducing with Big Massive Orchestra, studying guitar at RNCM)


Sam is a veteran of the mighty Bellowhead, former artistic director of the National Folk Youth Ensemble, founder member of the acclaimed instrumental trio Leveret, and a superb instrumentalist at the forefront of the revival in English traditional music.  



“The fiddler with the Midas touch… an English equivalent of the great Irish fiddle player Martin Hayes.” **** The Guardian


“Sweeney’s playing is unearthly at times: the singular focus of this set and the level of its performance makes this an outstanding and deeply moving experience.” ***** - Songlines

I, Elizabeth

I, Elizabeth

1568: At a vital crossroads in history a young Queen steps from the shadows to unburden herself of her many troubles and reveal her innermost thoughts on marriage, succession, religion, war and the challenges to her throne.


Defying the establishment by choosing to lead her country alone, she forsakes her own dreams and desires in order to steer England towards national and spiritual security. But time is against her...


Elizabeth I: Queen at 25, political phoenix and famously unmarried, she was the most educated woman of her Age - but who was the woman beneath the crown?


Traitor, bastard, heretic or prisoner: call her what you like. The rest is history.


Using only Elizabeth's own letters, speeches and writings, solo performer Rebecca Vaughan continues her successful collaboration with director Guy Masterson (Austen's Women - Edinburgh 2009 and Adelaide 2010 sell out), exploring the Queen's struggle to reconcile the desires of womanhood with the duties of sovereignty.

Jeeves & Wooster

Jeeves & Wooster

Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense is a play written by David and Robert Goodale based on the 1938 novel The Code of the Woosters by P. G. Wodehouse. It made its world premiere at the Richmond Theatre in October 2013, then transferred later that month to the West End's Duke of York's Theatre.


“Man and boy, Jeeves, I have been in some tough spots in my time, but this one wins the mottled oyster”


Join aristocratic man about town Bertie Wooster and his dutiful valet Jeeves for a weekend away at a country house. When Wooster is called on to play matchmaker and inadvertently steals an antique silver cow-creamer (don’t ask), the ever dependable Jeeves is on hand to step in and save Bertie’s bacon.


Three actors play a multitude of characters in this inventive and totally bonkers send-up of P.G. Wodehouse’s iconic double act, which won the 2014 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.


Running time 2hrs 10mins including 20 minute interval.

ROH Encore: The Dante Project (12A)

ROH Encore: The Dante Project

Dante’s Divine Comedy is an epic journey through the afterlife: it encompasses the horrifying drama of Inferno and its damned, the lyrical mysticism of pilgrims on mount Purgatorio and the dazzling spheres of Paradiso with their endless configurations of light.


The poem was inspired by the agony of Dante’s own exile, and traces his path from crisis to revelation guided by his literary hero Virgil and his lost love Beatrice. In this new work, The Royal Ballet’s trailblazing Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor collaborates with an award-winning team – contemporary composer Thomas Adès, artist Tacita Dean, lighting designer Lucy Carter and dramaturg Uzma Hameed – to bring us closer to Dante and his extraordinary vision.
