DIRECTOR’S CHOICE Austen’s Women


In a bold revisiting using nothing but the words of Jane Austen herself, the souls of Emma Woodhouse, Lizzy Bennet, Mrs Norris and many more are brilliantly illuminated in this one woman show. Taken out of context (and in the absence of the men!) these women speak volumes for their sex and their standing constrained by the stringent social code of their time.


Lovers of Jane Austen or the uninitiated few will revel in appreciation of the queen of English literature distilled to her essence!


‘A loving homage...the piece is tightly corseted, but frilly, flowing and flamboyant in all the right places’ (The Stage)

Roger McGough That Awkward Age


One of Britain’s best-loved poets has come a long way since Lily The Pink, The Scaffold and Yellow Submarine, which he helped write for the Beatles. The award of a CBE, Freedom of the City of Liverpool and a clutch of Honorary Degrees only hint at his popularity – the current Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy dubbed him ‘the patron saint of poetry’. Fight to get a ticket.


Recommended for ages 14+

Frankenstein


Enter a world of feverish dreaming, as storyteller Ben Haggarty and musician Sianed Jones present an intense interpretation of Mary Shelley’s modern myth. Truly a story for our time, Frankenstein speaks of power unleashed and of the fear of the unknown. Steeped in gothic with an avant-garde slant, this is a heady night of spoken narrative, music and song.
