Hutch

Wed 18 & Thu 19 Sep • 7:30pm • Full £10 Concs £8 • Community Theatre

By John Reynolds
Presented by Baz Jellicoe

Three vulnerable people sharing an attic divided into ‘hutches’ eke out a meek existence, but their landlord’s plans force them to choose between surrender or resistance. 

Hutch is a comedy with a serious message which examines the injustices and absurdities of the current housing crisis and, in particular, ‘sex for rent’. The play conveys the everyday struggles of long-term residents, Svenya and Bob, and new arrival, Debbie, in a world where the rogue landlord is king. 

Audience Feedback: 

 Hutch was superb: hard-hitting, but also very funny; theatrically innovative and very topical. 

Full of pathos, comedy and compassion. Not to mention three gripping, very three-dimensional, well-drawn characters about who we came to care a lot. 

“I enjoyed every minute of the play. It was funny, moving and conveyed a powerful message.”

AFTERMIRTH September

Thu 26 Sep • 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 Autumn Season.

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