Welcome to the Parish of Cummerbund-Upon-Tweed

Tuesday 27 October to Saturday 1 November at 9.30pm
The Oxford Revue
presents their brand new show, Welcome to the Parish of Cummerbund-Upon- Tweed: Please Drive Carefully.

There’s an old saying in Cummerbund-Upon-Tweed, but nobody’s sure what it is. For this is a village steeped in centuries of tradition – home of the world’s oldest stopped clock and fiercely proud of it. How will this out-of-pace little town, this last outpost of old England, square up to the descending forces of modernity.

Is this the death of England’s green and pleasant land? Journey through Cummerbund-Upon-Tweed and find out.

Dahling You Were Marvellous!

Tuesday 4 to Saturday 8 November at 7.30pm
By Steven Berkoff

Following opening night in a West End theatre, a high-class restaurant hosts a range of characters from the theatre, TV, and film worlds. Sycophancy and bitching thinly veils an insatiable desire for appreciation and love from ‘their’ audience.

Steven Berkoff is a renowned actor, director and playwright, regarded as one of the greatest living theatre practitioners and his trademark acerbic wit is applied with great effect in this intensely funny character play, presented here in a fast-paced production.

Monkey Bars

Tuesday 18 to Saturday 22 November at 7.30pm
By Chris Goode

Chris Goode’s Monkey Bars uses interviews with children and then puts their words into the worlds and mouths of adults. It playfully asks us the question: how much of what children say do we actually hear?

First performed in 2012 at the Edinburgh Fringe to critical acclaim, Monkey Bars is a poignant, hilarious and unsettling insight into the voices that we don’t always listen to.

Ridley's Choice

Tuesday 25 to Saturday 29 November at 7.30pm
By James P. Mannion

A failing writer, frustrated by yet another terrible review, throws in the towel on society to pursue the simple life in a woodland cabin.

But when his new lifestyle reaches the attention of the outside world, his ideological standpoint creates a sensation. The fame he has hitherto sought falls seemingly within his grasp and his integrity is called into question, in this new play by James P. Mannion.

The Country

Tuesday 2 to Saturday 6 December at 7.30pm
By Martin Crimp

Hypnotist Theatre presents radical playwright Martin Crimp’s The Country: a masterclass in tension and the lies we tell to survive.

When Richard and Corinne make the decision to leave the city for a home in the country, it seems as though their past has finally been laid to rest. But one night Richard brings home a girl. A girl he found on the road. Soon their carefully constructed web begins to unravel and the cracks start to show.

Comedy sketch-duo Jackson & Grumitt present a brand new hour of entertainment. Filled with punishing punchlines, subtle satire, wacky wordplay, and awful alliteration, this show answers the questions you’ve been just dying to ask:

Why were the pyramids really invented? Why would anyone invade Papua New Guinea? And what does God have against Scotland? Find out the answers to all these and more in the fantastically funny and orange-y world of Planet Marmalade.
