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.

Gallery of Screams: Two Stories by H P Lovecraft

Sat 25 Jun • 7:30pm • Full £16 Concs £14 • Professional Theatre

Adapted and Performed by R M Lloyd Parry
Presented by Nunkie Productions

“Any magazine-cover hack can splash paint around and call it a ‘Witches’ Sabbath’ or ‘Portrait of the Devil.’ But only a real artist can make it scare you…” 

In these two tales of terror by H P Lovecraft, an art critic and a philosopher get pushed to the edge of sanity by the images and sounds they confront.

Pickman’s Model introduces the uncannily brilliant work of Richard Upton Pickman – a genius shunned by the artistic establishment because of his sickening canvases. It is paired with The Music of Eric Zann, an eerie tale that Lovecraft himself counted as a personal favourite.
