Jive Talkin • 30 May • Swansea Grand Theatre

In 1997 Gary & Darren from Jive Talkin performed live on Heart FM with the Bee Gees and received great compliments from both Maurice and Barry Gibb...... As with the original Bee Gees, Jive Talkin is very much a family affair, with brothers Gary and Darren Simmons taking the roles of Barry and Maurice Gibb, with Darren’s son Jack joining the group in 2014 and taking on the role of Robin Gibb. The guys are supported musically by a four piece band with lead guitar, violin, cello and drums, to ensure that every note in every song is just right!

Redhouse Arts Centre, present Sing A Song of Sixpence written by Arlene Pryce. Based on the story of Mary Ann Rees who was murdered in Merthyr, in 1908, she has gained a place in the town’s folklore by being named by those who believe in ghosts as “the White Lady” who haunts Ynysfach and areas near Merthyr College. The prostitute, Mary Ann Rees was found at the bottom of a 40 foot disused chimney hole, on Christmas Eve, 1908. The disused Coke Ovens where she was found were occupied at the time by the homeless of Merthyr and the area near the Iron Bridge was renowned for prostitution and different kinds of criminality. The play explores this world at the beginning of the twentieth century, through the female perspective, and specifically, looks at the life of Mary Ann Rees and her relationship with her lover, William Joseph Foy, who was hung for her murder in Swansea Gaol in 1909. It is an interesting dimension to the play that he was first held in a police cell on the ground floor of what is now, Redhouse Arts Centre, where the play is performed.
