This bitter sweet comedy follows protagonist Robbie as he sneaks into the maternity hospital to visit his young girlfriend Leonie and hold his newborn son Luke for the first time. Overwhelmed by the moment, he swears that Luke will not have the same tragic life he has had. Escaping a prison sentence by the skin of his teeth, he’s given one last chance……While serving a community service order, he meets Rhino, Albert and Mo who, like him, find it impossible to find work because of their criminal records. Little did Robbie imagine how turning to drink might change their lives – not cheap fortified wine, but the best malt whiskies in the world. Will it be ‘slopping out’ for the next twenty years, or a new future with ‘Uisge Beatha’ the ‘Water of Life?’ Only the angels know……..

Chris (Steve Oram) wants to show Tina (Alice Lowe) his world and he wants to do it his way – on a journey through the British Isles in his beloved Abbey Oxford Caravan. Tina’s led a sheltered life and there are things that Chris needs her to see – the Crich Tramway Museum, the Ribblehead Viaduct, the Keswick Pencil Museum and the rolling countryside that separates these wonders in his life. But it doesn’t take long for the dream to fade. Litterbugs, noisy teenagers and pre-booked caravan sites, not to mention Tina’s meddling mother, soon conspire to shatter Chris’s dreams and send him, and anyone who rubs him the wrong way, over a very jagged edge.

Dreadnought South West Association presents a new play by Natalie McGrath
100 years ago imagine that fifteen women gather // They have a conversation that maps eight geographic arteries across England and Wales, like points on a compass // These arteries reach out towards a singular destination like roots forming a tree // The destination is Hyde Park // It’s June, 1913 and the Great Suffrage Pilgrimage begins.
A tour of a new play from Lands End to London // Remembering when 15 women became 1000s…

Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption-a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.

Don’t miss this! A real treat and not just for jazz lovers, this is a chance to get up close and personal with one of the UK’s leading jazz musicians and composers. For those who think they aren’t into jazz, come and be entranced by Andy’s lyrical, weaving tunes and soulful playing, enhanced by his subtle use of live backing loops. Andy will play a single 75 minute set, to be followed by an informal question and answer session chaired by a local jazz enthusiast.
The man who has emerged as one of Britain’s foremost tenor and soprano saxophonists was introduced to the music of John Coltrane at the age of nineteen and immediately went out and bought his own saxophone. A successful recording artist, bandleader and composer (for film, TV and theatre), Andy Sheppard is one of a very few British jazz artists to have made a significant international impact. He has worked with an astonishing range of musical partners and is remarkably, one of a very few soloists to have played in the big bands of all three of the greatest post-war jazz composers, Carla Bley, George Russell and Gil Evans. Other collaborators have included Northumbrian piper and fiddler Kathryn Tickell, and eclectic pianist Joanna MacGregor. Andy has a string of albums to his name, including Learning to Wave (1998), Nocturnal Tourist(2001), Movements in Colour (2009) and his latest collaboration with Michel Benita and Sebastian Rochford, Trio Libero (2012).
Sheppard is always a compelling voice…’, Time Out
‘Romanticism, carefully managed anarchy and accessibility subtle, elegant jazz…’ The Guardian
