Jo Caulfield – ‘Celebration of Anger’

March 8, 2014
8:00 pm

Award-winning comedian Jo Caulfield is back with a hilarious new show.

Jo’s always wondered why anger is seen as such a bad thing. When life presents such irritations as vacuous celebrities, endless TV quiz shows, arrogant shop-assistants, emotionally challenged men, drunken girlfriends who always pick the wrong partner, and a husband who continually quotes The Godfather, surely having a good rant – and a good laugh – is the only sensible reaction?

Star of her Radio 4 show, Jo Caulfield’s Speakeasy, and seen on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, The Apprentice: You’re Fired and BBC1’s The Politics Show, this is a fantastic night out for men and women alike. Enjoy your anger!

Nominated as Funniest Woman (LAFTA Awards) and Best Female Stand-Up (Chortle Awards), Jo is “feisty, funny and wonderfully bitchy” (Observer), with a “cut-throat wit and a razor-sharp tongue” (Times)

Dyad Productions present Austen’s Women

March 1, 2014
7:31 pm

Jane Austen created of some of literature’s most celebrated characters, defining her era, sex and class. Two hundred years on, her works continue to speak for the yearning heart as much as they did when they were written – so just how much has really changed for women since then?

In a solo performance of extraordinary virtuosity – using only Austen’s words – Rebecca Vaughan boldly revisits the most rewarding moments from the ‘two inches of ivory’. In scenes of high comedy and profound pathos, she deconstructs the souls of Emma Woodhouse, Lizzy Bennet, Mrs Norris, Miss Bates and nine other beautifully observed women. Divorced from their historical context (and in the absence of their men), these women present a glorious distillation of 19th century feminism and speak volumes about love, friendship, and notorious improprieties.

Austen lovers and the uninitiated alike will revel in this brilliant and illuminating evocation of Austen’s Women directed by Guy Masterson.

★★★★★ “Truly extraordinary…Rebecca Vaughan is one of the most exciting young performers on the British stage” (British Theatre Guide)

★★★★★”A theatrical masterpiece… utterly faultless and vastly entertaining” (Three Weeks)
