WARHOL: BULLET KARMA

Written and performed by Garry Roost

Directed by Kenneth Hadley

Following on from Garry’s successful premiere at Edinburgh Festival and at The Adelaide Festival, Australia he returns for another three-day run with his darkly witty take on the American icon of pop art.

The play looks at Warhol's early life and his obsessive determination to "become famous". This Warhol excelled at and was recognised by his tutor to be "the most gifted and talented student I've ever seen." Andy eventually moved to New York and got his dream job as a commercial artist. The factory came later along with the extraordinary explosion of ideas and concepts that would shake the pop art world. This did not come easily. Roost unfolds the story, the lives and tragic losses of those who lived and died in the factory.

BOTTLED UP

 Written and directed by Milli Collins and Abbie Sheriff

Produced by Léonie Scott-Matthews

Bottled Up! Is a multi-media performance combining music, poetry, animation and physical theatre which hopes to raise awareness for alcoholism and addiction in young people.

The story follows a girl called Alex who goes to university and her journey begins there

Some of the cast are in recovery themselves so the script is based on true events drawn from their own experiences.

We hope that our performance will shine a light on the ever-progressive mental illness of addiction, and show young people that you are never too young to seek help.

Tickets: £10.00

THE STARS THAT PLAY WITH LAUGHING SAM'S DICE

by Robert Calvert (1945-1988)

Produced by Léonie Scott-Matthews

A fascinating play about a little known and formative episode in the early life of Jimi Hendrix. The Stars That Play With Laughing Sam's Dice commissioned and first performed at Pentameters in 1976.

 “… an absorbing, thought-provoking piece that will send those of us of a certain age back to our youth.”     Camden New Journal

 “Must see. Delightful trip into the mind of Jimi Hendrix. Excellent.”   Audience Member

It is 1962 and a potentially explosive standoff is looming in the hold of a US army plane between a veteran white sergeant and a callow black paratrooper. The young private, who has provoked his sergeant’s ire by declining to jump, is James Marshall Hendrix; in four years’ time he will come to his apotheosis as rock star Jimi Hendrix.

Now, though, it is not fear or insubordination but a premonition that is stopping him from launching himself from the plane; Jimi is hesitantly poised on the edge of a jump into a future as a musician that will bestow him with “money, fame and chicks".
