Get F*cked

Wed 29 May • 7:30pm • Full £10 £ • Professional Theatre

Created by Charlotte Hobbs, Rosie Howard, Jessica Sterling, Maia Tassalini-Collins and Pippa Thornton
Presented by Flipside Productions

Take a dive into the lives of a group of twenty-somethings this summer, as Flipside Productions returns to the Rondo with a collection of new monologues presenting the female perspective on the one-night-stand.

Join the vibrant characters as they negotiate the pleasures and perils of dating as young women, each with her own story: some shocking, some moving and some hilarious, but all with one thing in common: there’s no strings attached!

This play was created by an ensemble of women with a passion for theatre and for working collaboratively. Some of the stories are inspired by true events, and some are entirely true. The audience are invited to have fun guessing which!

★★★★ “faultless and arresting performances in this clever and evocative piece. Flipside are clearly a company to watch.” Bath Echo on FRESHER
★★★★ “imaginatively staged, witty and piercing” Theatre Bath on Real Life
“Riveting to watch… astutely hilarious” That’s What She Said on FRESHER

The Blackheart Orchestra

Thu 21 Mar • 8pm • Full £14 Concs £12 • Music

Described by Rock Society magazine as “One of the most extraordinary female voices singing anywhere” and by Genesis Legend Steve Hackett as “Beautiful, powerful and inspiring” award-winning British songwriters, composers and multi-instrumentalists Chrissy Mostyn and Rick Pilkington are The Blackheart Orchestra, and have become one of the must-see bands of 2019.

The pioneering duo blend musical styles seamlessly, sidestepping boundaries to create music huge enough to fill a cathedral. Well known for producing music beyond all easily marketed genres, their multi-instrumental sonic landscapes have always been too unpredictable for pop, too adventurous for the mainstream and too plain weird for folk. Fusing acoustic fragility and electronica, The Blackheart Orchestra bring together stringed instruments with 80’s synthesisers and classical influences. Often mistaken for an 8-piece band on first listen, their stage has been described as a ‘musical spaceship’ or ‘laboratory’ where they are to be found continuously changing from electric and acoustic guitars, bowed guitar, piano, organ, bass and electronic percussion to vintage synthesisers, omnichord and melodica in a complex choreographed weave of musical moods and textures. One moment their sound is minimal and molecular, the next a mountain-like wall of sound with vast symphonic climaxes.

“One of the most extraordinary female voices singing anywhere” Rock Society Magazine

“The band’s fresh new sound is delicate and fragrant” PROG Magazine

Voted ‘Best British Duo’ Exposure Music Awards

Voted #4 Best New Band of 2018

Direct from Total Sell Outs  at the Gilded Balloon, Edinburgh Fringe 2017 and Brighton Fringe 2017, and following sell out Edinburgh Fringe runs in 2015 and 2016 plus a sell-out UK tour, award winning* comedian George Egg (the ‘Anarchist Cook’) returns to The Rondo by popular demand with this brilliant show, demonstrating more live cooking and laugh-out-loud comedy.

A hilarious and shocking romp through theatrical history, as the Rondo becomes a seventeenth century theatre for a moving and funny play which shows that the exploitation of women in entertainment is nothing new.

This is the story of the first professional actresses to appear on the English stage, at the command of a monarch with an eye for a pretty girl. With historical characters such as Nell Gwyn and the Earl of Rochester, follow their stories of success and tragedy, and see how female performers have been fighting to be taken seriously as actors with spirit and humour since the earliest days.
