Thursday 31st August - NT: YERMA

7.00 pm £11/£10

The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece. The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times) and ‘stunning, searing, unmissable’ (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper’s lead performance is described as ‘spellbinding’ (The Evening Standard), ‘astonishing’ (iNews) and ‘devastatingly powerful’ (The Daily Telegraph). Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax. Please note that this broadcast does not have an interval.

★★★★★ “Brutal yet ferociously funny”, Metro ★★★★★ “Billie Piper makes a shattering Yerma in Simon Stone’s inspired reworking of Lorca”, The Observer

★★★★★ “A shatteringly powerful reinvention of a familiar classic”, The Independent

‘Please note that the performance of Yerma includes strobe lighting.’

Sunday 17th September - Comedy at The Edge: Mark Watson

8pm £17

After more than 100 dates on the road in 2016 with his best-reviewed show to date, ‘I’m Not Here’, and a similarly marathon effort with the previous tour, Mark Watson is amazed to find there are STILL some areas of the country he’s not visited much, and some towns that have been neglected altogether. It’s hard to be everywhere at once, so he’s narrowed it down to a sensible plan: for the next tour, Watson will only visit places beginning with M or W, his initials – as they’ve already shown a commitment by having those names in the first place. A few of these will be favourite old haunts like Winchester or Manchester, but quite a few of them are the result of Googling and quite a number are so remote that we won’t know they definitely exist until we get there. Also, some aren’t actually towns so much as trains (from Marylebone to Wycombe), or ferries (across the Mersey), or a helicopter museum (in the double-point-scoring Middle Wallop).

The material will be a mixture of the classic and the never-before-seen. And in some cases a fair bit of it will be about being on a train.

La bohème. Irresistible in its witty, passionate blend of comedy and tragedy, the opera focusses on the lives of a group of young artists as they eke out an existence on the Bohemian fringes of Paris, the capital of the 19th century. Jones brings his characteristically acute insight to this much-loved classic, visualized in Stewart Laing’s spectacular, stylized 1850s setting.

In 2014, the tenth series of Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation was broadcast on Radio 4. He is also well known for his appearances on The News Quiz and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue. Indeed, Alan Bennett recently said he likes him “but he’s only on the radio”.

However, Jeremy isn’t only on the radio, his television credits include: Jack Dee’s Election Helpdesk (BBC2), QI (BBC1), Mock The Week (BBC2), Grumpy Old Men (BBC1), Back In The Day (BBC2), Not Tonight With John Sergeant (BBC2).

He is also on the road all year round and has never stopped doing live shows since 1984. He’s continuing his tour this autumn!

“In an ideal world, Jeremy Hardy would be extremely famous, but an ideal world would leave him without most of his best material.”

Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway. But there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night on the piss than Karl Heinrich Marx.
