The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists
30th October 2021 7.30pm
Actor Neil Gore brings this humorous and absorbing book to life in his one-man magic lantern show. Based on the 1914 novel by Robert Tressell, its story is set in the building trades of Edwardian England where painters and decorators struggle to maintain themselves and their families, poverty and the constant fear of unemployment notwithstanding, while renovating a large townhouse for the local mayor.
With projected animation, conjuring tricks, live music and song, there’s something for all the family, not least the chance to become acquainted with this timeless story of socialism and political awakening.
Suitable for Children over 12
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
Bouncers – Sapphire Productions – 4 December 2021 7.30pm
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.
