TWO

By Jim Cartwright

 

A bickering husband and wife and the dozen regulars who pass through their pub in an evening are played by two actors. Each vignette skillfully combines pathos and humor. When a little boy is left behind by his father, a fragile reconciliation occurs as their own dark tragedy is revealed.

4SQUARE

"Manchester's ferocious folk foursome"

 

4Square play their music with finesse, fire and virtuosity, yet an understated maturity which has grown throughout their seven year journey as a band.

The sight and sound of simultaneous fiddle and clog dancing and virtuosic mandolin will stir the senses and quicken the pulse, galvanised by an engine-room of driving piano and percussion.
By contrast, the listener is then stirred and softened by 4Square's mellow, melancholic three part-harmony singing.

An outright musical journey, all in an acoustic setting.

 

Tickets £10.00 on sale from Interiors on 16th March.

THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING (12A)

Eddie Redmayne, felicity Jones.

 

The Theory of Everything is the story of the most brilliant and celebrated physicist of our time, Stephen Hawking, and Jane Wilde the arts student he fell in love with whilst studying at Cambridge in the 1960s. Little was expected from Stephen Hawking, a bright but shiftless student of cosmology, given just two years to live following the diagnosis of a fatal illness at 21 years of age. He became galvanized, however, by the love of fellow Cambridge student, Jane Wilde, and he went on to be called the successor to Einstein, as well as a husband and father to their three children. Over the course of their marriage as Stephen's body collapsed and his academic renown soared, fault lines were exposed that tested the lineaments of their relationship and dramatically altered the course of both of their lives.

 

Tickets £4.00 on sale 16th March.

KING PLEASURE AND THE BISCUIT BOYS

 

King Pleasure & the Biscuit Boys are more than just the world's greatest swing & R&B band, they are an institution! The band have been on the road for almost three decades playing every European country as well as touring the USA, Russia and the MiddleEast, recording ten CDs.

​ Dazzling musicianship,​ riveting stage performances, more than 50 TV appearances (including, somewhat bizarrely, five episodes of Teletubbies) and 75 radio broadcasts have established them as the Kings of Swing.

 

Tickets £15.00 on sale from Interiors 16th March.
