Jordan Brookes: This Is Just What Happens

Thu 29 Sep • 8pm • Full £14 • Comedy

What do you do when the end of the world finally comes, and you realise it’s going to happen slowly and boringly? No sudden meteor strike. No thrilling zombie apocalypse. Just a gradual ebbing away of life as you knew it. Do you fight to fix things before it gets worse, dedicating your life to making the world around you better? Nah! You close your curtains, hunker down and fixate over something shitty someone said to you in 2019.

The longest reining Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner is back with a new show! As seen on Late Night Mash (Dave), Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club (ITV), and his own stand up special coming soon to Amazon Prime.

Be.

Thu 30 Jun • 8pm • Full £10 Concs £8 • Professional Theatre

Written by Gabrielle Finnegan
Presented by Greedy Pig Theatre Company

“Feminine? Masculine? Why can’t we just… be?”

The moment you were born, the doctor announced your gender, and the world put you in a box. And maybe that’s a comfortable box, and you’ll sit there happily for the rest of your life. But maybe it’s not… and what happens then? Be. follows three characters trying to break out of their boxes, as they discover what it means to be ‘Her’, ‘Him’ or ‘Them’, in a story intertwined with the authentic collective experiences of over 60 real people.

With enchanting music and provocative, poetic storytelling, Greedy Pig Theatre Company’s latest production gives a voice to those made restless by the constraints of gender within our communities, and asks why sometimes it’s so difficult to just… be.

Please note that Be. contains strong language and discusses themes of a sensitive nature, including discrimination, gender dysphoria, eating disorders, sex and mental health.

The Silence of Snow: The Life of Patrick Hamilton

Thu 26 May • 8pm • Full £16 Concs £14 • Professional Theatre

Written and Performed by Mark Farrelly 
Directed by Linda Marlowe 

Mark Farrelly’s riveting, kinetic solo show portrays one of the great English writers of the inter-war years. Patrick Hamilton was a dazzling success in his twenties, producing hit plays Rope (filmed by Hitchcock) and Gaslight, and classic novels Hangover Square and The Slaves of Solitude. But Hamilton was also an alcoholic, whose wit darkened as his inner and outer worlds collapsed.

Covering the entire sweep of Hamilton’s thrilling life and writing, The Silence of Snow entertains and challenges, asking: why do so many of us get through life without feeling we ever truly knew another person?

★★★★ “You won’t be able to take your eyes off this magnetic actor Mark Farrelly. He inhabits the character of Hamilton with a blazing fluidity” The Times
★★★★ “Farrelly’s performance is electric” What’s On Stage
★★★★ “Master of the monologue Mark Farrelly intriguingly deploys his many skills and all his talents” Broadway Baby
★★★★ “Clear and sharp-eyed characterisation and performance of a very high order” Edinburgh Guide
★★★★ “Farrelly’s achievement is to portray a life so lacking in personal happiness so entertainingly” British Theatre Guide
★★★★ “Wonderful passion and charisma…a complete embodiment of a complex character” Exeunt
★★★★ “Horrifyingly funny snapshot of the wit, novelist and playwright… brilliant” The Spectator
★★★★ “Farrelly’s revelatory autopsy of a cauterised heart of darkness is intimidatingly implosive: stand well close” The Reviews Hub
