The Beast in Me – the Devils Violin
27 November 2021 – 7.30pm
Since their inception in 2006, they have developed a huge following for their gripping and
powerful storytelling. Who is the stranger who waits at the crossroads? Why does a man have a wing for an arm?
Why does the filthy stranger wear a bear’s skin, and why do his pockets overflow with gold?
Shot through with mysterious imagery, ‘The Beast in Me’ is an unforgettable tale of the
calamitous impact of chance and the redemptive power of love
Pinocchio the Panto
Matinee and Evening shows 28, 29 and 30 January 2022, 4, 5, 6, 11 and 12 February 2022 – 3.00pm and 7.30pm – Tickets now on sale, reduced prices for children and special social distanced performances on Friday Evening
Pinocchio is brought to life when an old carpenter, called Gepetto, wishes upon a shooting star. Little does Gepetto know however, that stromboli, the evil circus ringmaster, now has his sights set on Pinocchio. Stromboli wants Pinocchio to be the star attraction in his failing circus and sets a plan in motion to kidnap him. Pinocchio must escape the clutches of the circus and, if he ever wants to be a real boy, he must be on his best behaviour. Lucky for Pinocchio, he is helped by good old Jiminy Cricket and the wonderful (if a bit clumsy) Fairy Nuff.
Bouncers – Sapphire Productions – 19 March 2022 7.30pm – PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF DATE
It’s Friday night. Pub and club night. What you’ve been ‘saving up all week for’ night! This outrageous and brilliant comedy by the hugely acclaimed local playwright John Godber is a parody of the contemporary nightclub scene. Judd, Les, Ralph and Lucky Eric, the four brutish bouncers, will play over twenty different characters, inviting us to see their portrayal of a night out in what could be any town in the UK – Market Rasen or Lincoln included! With local references we of course meet the bouncers, but then we go on to meet giggly women on a night out, lads ‘on the pull’, Hooray Henry’s, the smooth talking club DJ and even Nobby ze Swedish postman – to name but a few. All set against the tatty, glitzy glamour, flashing lights and the pulsating beats of the dance floor. This will be a hilarious night out that you’re not likely to forget for a good long time!! Contains adult humour.
