Count Magnus: Two Ghost Stories

Fri 3 Dec • 7:30pm • Full £16 Concs £14 • Professional Theatre

By M R James
Presented by Nunkie Productions

“At first they hear nothing. Then they hear someone scream, just as if the most inside part of his soul was twisted out of him.” 

The classic ghost stories of M R James entertain and terrify as powerfully today as they ever did. Nunkie Theatre brings two of the best to life in this thrilling one-man show.

In Count Magnus a travel-writer’s over-inquisitiveness leads to a diabolical chase from darkest Sweden to rural Essex. Denmark is the setting for Number 13, where a hotel room with the unlucky number, conceals a ghastly, baffling secret.

The White Heart Inn

Sat 30 Oct • 7:30pm • Full £14 Concs £10 • Professional Theatre

Written by Tiffany Rhodes, CJ Turner-McMullan and Russell Eccleston
Presented by Apricity Theatre, Black Dog Productions and Dumb Blonde Theatre

‘Situated in the Cornish countryside, The White Heart Inn is ideal for a Christian getaway. Marvel at the Grade II listed building, built in 1609 for the Bishop of Exeter. Enjoy what the quaint village has to offer. But please, for your own safety, stay away from the marshlands.’  

Five guests arrive at the inn, each with a different expectation. To sleep, to explore, to hunt for ghosts. Things take a turn when they hear about the violent past of the grounds they are staying on. The eccentric owners of the inn, Bethel and Hector, seem obsessed by the marshes next door. Local pride? Or something more sinister?

Written by Jonathan R. Parsonage

‘I look out at the garden. Concrete slab.
I look up at the sky. Concrete clouds.
It’s time.’ 

Eden likes to watch people undress. He also likes chips.

Eden’s Mouth follows a young, disillusioned man as he walks to his local chippy to get some chips, and back to his mum’s house. As he walks, he muses on his life, his family, age, class and more.

When he returns home, what he finds changes his life forever.

After tonight, Eden won’t be able to tell his story ever again.

Nhair

Written & Performed by Conny Hancock

Conny can’t get her garden to grow. She’s tried everything and honestly? It’s beginning to piss her off. On top of that, she’s trying to navigate tricky love interests, frustrating doctor appointments, and a new career.

Oh. And she’s also really hairy.

Nhair is a hilarious, empowering and brutally honest ode to self-love, exploring what it’s like to not quite fit into the mould of the stereotypical woman.

Expect laughs, cries and awful ukulele playing.

The Natural Theatre Company are bringing their bonkers new Christmas show to The Rondo… Oh yes they are!

During this holiday season, this is your chance to see the colourful, bouncy show that links all the pantomimes and Christmas tales in the world ever into one fabulous festive family treat.

At the door is a soaking wet woman who just wants to rest on a comfortable bed. Who is she? How did she get here? Will she be able to sleep with a pea under her mattress?
Her story comes to life before our very eyes and it involves a glass slipper, a beanstalk, a magic lamp… and a lot of familiar characters being very, very funny.

We look forward to shouting “she’s behind you!” at the Rondo this December!

Relaxed Performances

Relaxed Performances are for everyone, but lighting is less harsh, house lights remain on and audience members are free to make noise and move around the theatre.

Battle Cry

Fri 25 Feb • 8pm • Full £14 Concs £12 • Professional Theatre

Written by Matt Fox
Presented by Madam Renard’s

When you’ve witnessed the worst things imaginable, the world can never be the same again. Battle Cry is a new one-hour solo piece based on the true story of a former soldier battling PTSD.
We soon realise that Adam’s life has never been easy, but is he too proud to ask for help? Would he rather try to cope in the only way he knows how?  Or is it just too late?

Relevant, real and unflinching, Battle Cry reminds us that asking for help maybe the toughest battle of all.

Battle Cry is a play ‘for the head and heart’.
