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

Pete Searles: Hey Gringo! A Chile Christmas

Thu 30 May • 8pm • Full £14 Concs £10 • Comedy

Directed by Stephen Frost

British actor and writer Peter Searles, a veteran of stage, screen, and BBC television and radio, gives an intensely dramatic and frequently hilarious account of his journey from the scorching wastes of the Atacama Desert in northern Chile to the shantytowns and smog-laden cities of the south, to a world of forests, lakes, and volcanoes.

Accompanied by oversexed train drivers, a beautiful young revolutionary, out-of-work actors, Marxist priests, fascist police, Chilean Eco-warriors, and Pinochet’s neighbours, Searles recounts a journey that turns into a quest for truth and meaning in land torn apart by thirteen years of military dictatorship.

“A stand-up storyteller par excellence, Searles could have gone on for another hour and nobody would have batted an eye. He is Britain’s answer to Spalding Gray” – **** Metro

The Last Days of Judas Iscariot

Fri 31 May • 7.30pm • Full £10 Concs £8 • Community Theatre

Written by Stephen Adly Guirgis 
Presented by The Actor’s Wheel

This is a story about choices and consequences and a journey through time and place. A host of historical, fictional and biblical characters gather in a makeshift courtroom in purgatory with Judas at the centre of it all, catatonic with despair and unable to defend himself in a trial that debates the motives of Christianity’s least popular apostle.

If betrayal is the ultimate sin, then is forgiveness the ultimate sign of grace?’ Michael Billington (The Guardian)

Monstrous

Wed 5 Jun • 8pm • Full £10 • Professional Theatre

Written & Performed by Alexandra Ricou

Hera is angry, but she’s been trying her best to get past it. She has a therapist, she’s read all the mindfulness books she can find in her local library, she goes to yoga every day and she drinks more green tea than even Gwyneth Paltrow could stomach. Yet still that deepseated rage twists in her guts like a pit of vipers. Then again, when you’re an Ancient Greek goddess, being filled with an unquenchable wrath comes with the territory. Perhaps it’s time to have a little vent… but is the world ready for 3000 years worth of anger?

AFTERMIRTH DAYTIME COMEDY

Wed 12 Jun • 12pm • Full £10 • Comedy

Presented by AFTERMIRTH COMEDY

The journey of parenthood is a magical and maddening one, so what better way to cope with it than through stand-up comedy! AFTERMIRTH is an adult comedy club that you can bring your baby to.

Each week we’ll have 3 top circuit comedians delivering their usual club routines so the material is mature and sweary with the odd birth story flash-back….  The only difference is it’s during the day. Babies under 18 months are welcome, but please don’t bring older toddlers because they tend to heckle!

This special afternoon gig has reduced amplification and a dimmed room so no one will notice those red eyes from sleepless nights. You’re encouraged to bottle, breast or Haribo feed and you can walk about or shake Mittens the Special Rabbit in order to soothe your offspring and no one will moan or mutter if your little one cries or screams.

The gig is also open to parents, Aunts, Uncles, Grans, carers, in fact anyone who needs some afternoon comedy and doesn’t mind some cute babies in attendance.

AFTERMIRTH is lovingly curated and compered by Angie Belcher.

Please note! There’s limited space, so ditch the buggy and bring a sling if you can.

Beryl's of Mayfair

Sat 15 Jun • 7.30pm • Full £14 Concs £12 • Professional Theatre

Presented by Ministry of Entertainment 

Mervyn’s going to Kidderminster. Beryl’s off for her monthly trip to the wholesaler in Exeter (or is she?) and there’s only Hattie, the over-zealous new junior, to keep an eye on the salon. What could possibly go wrong? 

Well… Mr. Bicknell is supposed to arrive early to repair the dry rot upstairs. He doesn’t. Susan hasn’t had her ‘hot water-tap training’ yet and now there’s a suspicious vagrant lurking in the back yard. The clients, Beryl’s ‘ladies,’ with their regular appointments are coming in any minute. Oh… and Blue Rinse Monday was such a huge success that some will have to be fitted in today, Tuesday. Well, Mervyn did offer the ‘silver’ clients the rinse at half-price. Oh no! Here comes Mrs. Bluett. She has new gossip and she’s peeking under all the dryers, looking for Mrs. Foster. 

Here they come. All hands to the sinks!
