Savage

Thu 23 Jan & Fri 24 Jan • 7.30pm • Full £12 • Professional Theatre

 

Presented by Black Dog Productions 

By Russell Eccleston

 

‘When it comes down to it, most people are savages, they just need a little push and all sense of right and wrong goes out the window. They see nothing but the desire to survive. ‘ 

 A thief, a good thief, but stealing from the wrong people. Trapped in a swanky office guarded by hired muscle with no way out, Apollo is given a proposition that will set her and her sister free from their office block prison. If Apollo does what their captors say, will they truly be let free? Or is this just the beginning? 

 Join us in a whirlwind of power struggles, money making and drug fuelled dirty dealings. Business can be cut throat. Sometimes literally.

John-Luke Roberts: After Me Comes the Flood (But in French) drip splosh splash drip BLUBBP BLUBBP...

Sat 25 Jan • 8pm • Full £10 • Comedy

The critically acclaimed idiot John-Luke Roberts returns to the road with another ridiculously long titled show.

In a brand-new hour of extraordinary daft-hearted comedy, expect to not know why you are laughing once more… even when he gives you the punchline first. Jokes about staring into the Nietzschean void, the stupid decisions of kings and how Pinocchio can save the world all might make appearances in this hour of absolute silliness. But then again, maybe they won’t. Who knows what could happen!

Spring Awakening

Thu 30 Jan – Sat 1 Feb • 7:30pm • Full £12 Concs £10 • Community Theatre

Book & Lyrics by Steven Sater
Music by Duncan Sheik
Based on the play by Frank Wedekind
Presented by Bath Theatre Academy

‘There’s a moment you know you’re f****d…
Not an inch more room to self-destruct…’

The cusp of adulthood, faced with everything and nothing.

Oppressed by the world they inhabit.

Originally written in the 1890’s, censored in the 1960’s, and crafted in to a multi award winning musical in the 2000’s. Spring Awakening is a harrowing tale of misguided youth, the struggle for sense, and the reality of mis-education.

This fraught, raw and honest musical is an exploration of 19th century repression, seen through the eyes of teenagers, as they discover the inner and outer turmoil of teenage sexuality. 

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe). All authorised performance materials are also supplied by MTI Europe.

Aftermirth

Thu 6 Feb • 12pm • Full £10 • 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, and will recur throughout the Rondo’s Spring Season.

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

Woyzeck

Wed 12 – Sat 15 Feb • 7:30pm • Full £12 Concs £10 • Community Theatre

By Georg Buchner

Presented by Playing Up Theatre Company 

This one act, unfinished play, was originally discovered in 1836 after Buchner’s death. Subsequently completed by various authors, it is regarded as the first modern play with a working class man as its central character. Woyzeck serves the army Captain, is experimented on by the regimental doctor, who forces him to eat peas, leaving him little time with his wife Marie and their baby son; the only things that keep him sane. With an absent Woyzeck, Marie’s head is turned by the Drum Major. Woyzeck’s world falls apart and he descends into madness, taking his dreadful revenge on the unfaithful Marie.

Alex Edelman: Just For Us

Thu 20 Feb • 7:30pm • Full £15 Concs £13 • Comedy

Proudly Presented by Phil McIntyre Live Ltd 

Bostonian comedian. Jew. Sweetheart.

Alex Edelman’s first show, Millennial – about very traumatic stock photos and young people – won an Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer, the first show by an American to do so since 1997. The follow-up, Everything Handed to You – about identity and the availability of plug sockets in airports – was even more acclaimed: selling out its entire Edinburgh run and garnering the second-best reviews of any comedy show at the Festival. It was also filmed in its entirety for a special called Live at the BBC, which is currently available on Netflix.

Just For Us is what comes next. Nominated for the Barry award at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, earning the prestigious Herald Angel award as well as being nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Show, it’s about gorillas that can-do sign language and tribalism. Come.
Age Guidance 14+

“I fondly imagined this was what it might have been like to watch Jerry Seinfeld when he was in his early 20s. There is no greater praise than that.” ★★★★★ Mirror
“Boasting technical flair and a precocious authority, Edelman’s comedy manages to capture the voice of Generation Y.” Guardian
“Every story is a precision-engineered Rolls-Royce of a routine, perfectly timed and constructed, each morsel of information released just at the right moment.” Chortle
