55 Entertainment Night at the pub Electric Swing Circus perform in Lampeter


‘Two’:Written in 1989 but still astonishingly real today JIM CARTWRIGHT’S comedy


drama ‘Two’, set in a working class pub in the South Wales valleys, will be performed at Theatr Felinfach on Thursday (Oct 13). It’s An Act present the play, which


famously features 14 diverse characters played by just two actors, Jack Llewellyn and Clare-Anna Mitchell. It centres around an action packed night in a pub, and various members of the local community pull up a stool and let us into their lives. Written in 1989 but still


astonishingly real today, this much performed yet no less loved two- hander by the celebrated Lancastrian playwright steers the audience through a spectrum of human emotion, weaving a rich tapestry of life in a working class town in the South Wales valleys through intimate insights into the lives of the


colourful pub regulars. Its main characters are the landlord


and landlady and their painful story slowly unfolds throughout the evening, interlaced with a variety of characters each affected by another specific character. At extremes with each other; he the hands on money-in-till manager, she the gossipy heart of the bar, their façade ultimately cracks when a young boy in search of his missing dad appears and they are forced to face the loss of their child years before. Throughout the play, you will


meet a range of different characters that change the pace of the play, taking you on a rollercoaster ride of emotional highs and lows. Tickets for ‘Two’, which starts at


7.30pm, can be purchased from www. theatrfelinfach.wales or you can contact the Box Office on 01570 470697.


Electric Swing Circus: Catch them in Lampeter next month LAMPETER are in for a treat


next month when Electric Swing Circus perform at Victoria Hall in Bryn Road. The six-piece are a fusion of


saucy 20s swing and stomping electro beats. With an explosive sound that reverberates back through time, they have their own unique style of swing. Electric Swing Circus always


brings the party, so don’t miss out on their performance in Lampeter


Comedy Club returns WHAT better way to welcome


the students to Aberystwyth than to also welcome back the fantastic Comedy Club? Brought to us by Little


Wander, who are also responsible for organising the Machynlleth Comedy Festival, the monthly student comedy event filled the room at Aberystwyth Arts Centre on Thursday, September 29. With tables filled with anxious


people ready to kick back and enjoy a few hours of ultimate entertainment, the stage welcomed three


fantastically talented


comedians. Described as a ‘stroke of genius’


by Digital Spy, Ignacio Lopez, the half Spanish, half Welsh comic, took to the stage and eased the crowd with his humour. Lopez walked on to the stage


Rhian Boyt


Reporter rhian.boyt@herald.email


and, despite the audience being unaware of what his set would entail, from the moment he took a hold of the microphone and began to speak, he captured the audience with his striking Spanish accent. His accent alone was worth a listen to and his jokes were an added bonus to turn your frowns upside down. The brilliant thing about Lopez


was the skill he had to hold the crowd very well with his antidotes of the Welsh and Spanish cultures. He even threw in a few songs to mix his segment up a bit. Described as ‘a joy to behold’


by Metro and ‘hilarious’ by Heat, David Morgan took to the stage to entertain the audience and greatly


succeeded. He included the audience in every single joke he told. Solihull-born Morgan has


previously said that he discovered stand up at the Leicester Comedy Festival, and this was clearly evident as he provided fun, comedy and lots of laughter to the Aberystwyth crowd. Both Morgan and Lopez made


way on the stage for Tony Law, a fabulous comedian that made the audience feel like bursting into laughter from the word go! Only £10 a ticket, it is an event


not to be missed and being once a month, it is worth every penny! For more information, visit
