MY LIFE WITH KENNETH WILLIAMS
THINK NO EVIL OF US
Weds 6 @7.30pm, Sat 9 @7.30pm, Fri 15 @ 7.30pm & Sun 17 @ 5pm
In this thrilling and hilarious tour de force we see Kenneth Williams at his funniest -
and at his most badly behaved.
David Benson's uncanny impersonation was also recently heard
on the acclaimed BBC Radio 4 series,
'The Private World of Kenneth Williams'.
Following its Fringe First winning debut at the Edinburgh Festival in 1996, '
Think No Evil Of Us' played in the West End and toured the country.
It returned in 2006 for a tenth anniversary tour, to celebrate its enduring popularity
both with audiences who loved Kenneth Williams
and those who know nothing of his work, .
'Unforgettable & inspirational theatre.' Independent on Sunday
'Brilliant - a truly remarkable event.' Mail On Sunday
'A masterpiece of comic timing.' London Evening Standard
FRANKIE HOWERD - TO BE FRANK
Fri 8 @ 7.30pm, Tues 12 @ 6.30pm & Thurs 14 @ 7.30pm
Frankie Howerd - the man with the catchphrases:
Titter Ye Not! Shut yer faces! Not on your Nellie!
Known to millions as Lurcio the Roman slave in 'Up Pompeii', and as the star of innumerable films.
Howerd's career resembled a roller coaster ride - lurching from despair to triumph and back again,
before ending up the toast of a new generation.
The show ends with a brilliant Frankiesque finale:
a song, a frighteningly funny comedy routine and the Secret of True Happiness.
"Wonderful! Extremely funny and genuinely poignant too" Edinburgh Evening News
"Another winner for Benson!" Daily Mail"
It's a gem! We have a rich comedy past, but we need people
like Mr Benson to debunk it for us." Independent on Sunday
LOCKERBIE - UNFINISHED BUSINESS
Thurs 7 @ 7.30pm, Sun 10 @ 5pm, Wed 13 @ 7.30 & Sat 16 @ 7.30pm
When 270 people were killed in Britain's worst terrorist
atrocity, grieving father Jim Swire found his faith in his
own country's legal system shattered. His full shocking
story is told here, in a hard-hitting and gripping piece of
political theatre with international relevance.
This show reveals a different story to that in the
headlines, casting doubt on the official version of events.
Optional Q&A with David follows each performance.
