New Season

Staff Recommendations

The launch of our Autumn/Winter 2023/24 season is nearly here and the Live & Local team is sharing their favourite show picks to look forward to this season.

'My show pick this season is Quick Duck Theatre’s Yours Sincerely. I'm really looking forward to this because I saw an excerpt of it at a conference a few years ago and it was fantastic. Really funny, belly laughs from the beginning. The soundtrack is epic too.' - Kirsty, Company Manager 

'I'm a big fan of anarchic and witty comedy and that's precisely what this show gives you. Will Jackson is an engaging performer with a wildly funny energy and this story of how he accidentally stole 300 second class stamps from the post office and then used them to write a series of brilliant letters to ex-partners, old friends and the marketing department at John Lewis.' - Chris, Engagement Manager

Yours Sincerely

'I'm most looking forward to seeing Whichever, Wherever, Whenever. The band is Cantaloop and I enjoyed a sneak peak at what they have to offer when I attended the Worcester DART day last July. They are a funky, soul kind of band, with a great singer and very uplifting songs that I guess appeal to me as a musician myself! It will be their first time performing as part of the Live & Local menu and I can't wait to hear what our rural audiences will make of them!' Laura, Programme Administrator 

Whichever, Wherever, Whenever

'I’m really looking forward to The Gods Are All Here by Adverse Camber and starring storyteller Phil Okwedy. I’ve always loved storytelling and the power it has to connect people. This story has something for everyone and addresses real-life issues with humour and grace.' Emily, Marketing & Publicity Assistant

The Gods Are All Here

'I’m looking forward to seeing Ma Bessie’s After Hours show. I am a big fan of cabaret, burlesque and 1920s prohibition era jazz so I’m really excited to see the marrying of these things in one show!' Zara, Company Administrator

'Really looking forward to seeing Jack’s Ashes by Tim Marriott. I enjoy plays about Sport. After all, sport is very theatrical. If football is often 90 minutes of theatrical mayhem, then cricket can be a quieter affair. Yet cricket is often described as the quintessential English experience. Seeing this one person play in a village hall seems so perfect! Tim’s play has been performed in many countries and it’s one that I can’t wait to see.' - Steve, Artist Engagement Officer 

Jack's Ashes

'The show I really hope I get to see is Cri du Canard. I used to host couch surfers and a Parisien guest (who had an excellent command of English from watching Dr Who) took me to a French Dance night in Stamford Arts Centre. I live in Stamford and didn't know it was on, but people had travelled from all over Europe to go to it. It was magical and much more like Scottish ceilidh dancing than you'd think. I'm so glad we are offering this experience.' - Lesley, Community Engagement Officer

'I'm really looking forward to SET MENU The Best of George Egg. Combining live cooking with comedy - what's not to love!' - Nip, Community Engagement Officer
