LINO

24-year-old Harry Perkins took to the Atrium stage on July 20th to perform his autobiographical one-man-show, ‘LINO’, for the first time. Set in Basildon, Essex, this coming-of-age drama focuses on Harry, an only child who experiences a search for identity as he tries to deal with his tormented and troubled family. This groundbreaking play about the long-term impacts of domestic abuse is told through a series of memoirs from the survivor himself, exposing the prevailing injustices of abuse on a personal and social level. Harry put on a brave face and told his story that is as unique as it is universal - grappling with emotions that we have all experienced: powerlessness, shame, doubt, blindness, repression, forgiveness and animosity. Harry added, “It was very cathartic writing it, helped me deal with everything. They say write what you know and that, so I just did”. He has already won the Gruff Jones Memorial Prize for Scriptwriting, and is on the hunt to to gather sufficient funding…

Many Man

Many Man
Written & Performed by Tobias Weatherburn  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Tobias Weatherburn triumphs in Spilt Milks production of Many Man, taking us on a rollercoaster of emotions as he explores the multiple personalities of a man searching for happiness by creating a new persona each time life fails him. Many Man is a journey of a man searching for the better version of himself and ultimately wanting just to be the man he was born to be. From the start we thought this one man show would be something of a comedy stand up. There was much laughter as Weatherburn described his characters life and got all philosophical on life in general and each time the character transforms himself into a completely different persona it's done so cleverly and with lots of humour. It's not until each persona fails and breaks down that we see the dark and tormented side to his complex character.  Weatherburn delivers impeccable comic timing and nails a number of accents which keep flipping the show fro…

The Vicar Of Dibley

We had the pleasure of being invited to see Everyman Theatre's production of "The Vicar of Dibley" last night. In collaboration with this summer's Cardiff Open Air Theatre Festival at Sophia Gardens, it was a perfect evening! With an outdoor bar, street food cart from The Grazing Shed and lantern-lit tables, we were immersed into a cosy, friendly atmosphere before the show even begins! Packed full of laughs and memorable moments from the series, it's an event that's not to be missed. Hurry up, because ticket sales end tomorrow! If you're a fan of the series or are just looking for a fun, competitively-priced evening packed full of entertainment, come on down to see Geraldine Granger join the rural parish of Dibley!

Oh Boy... it's so good! The Buddy Holly Story is still packing the theatres in after 25yrs and over 25,000 performances worldwide and it's clear to see why.

Two hours of massive hits including 'Peggy Sue' 'Oh Boy' & 'Rave On' to name a few are the soundtrack to the life of Buddy Holly and his meteoric rise to fame.  Buddy is at The New Theatre until Saturday 8th July and it's a must see, feel good show that will have you bopping in the aisles and singing along to all those classic hits. A great touch at The New Theatre is the Budd…
