Milton Jones: Work In Progress

One man. One Mission. Is it possible? No, not really.

Milton reveals the truth about being an international spy, before being given a disappointing new identity which forced him to appear on Mock the Week and Live at the Apollo.

But this is also a love story with the twist, or at least a really bad sprain.

Just gloriously daft nonsense or is there a deeper meaning? Every man has his price. Sainsburys, where good food costs less.

The Government Inspector

Presented by Shifting Sands.

The Mayor of a small town is in a cold sweat. News has reached him of an imminent investigation by a high-ranking government official who is travelling incognito – The Government Inspector!

The town’s officials are thrown into a panicked frenzy. They waste no time to cover up the misdirected contracts, misuse of public money, the bribes, fiddled expenses, abuses of office… corruption that has been going on for years!

Matters spiral hysterically out of control when they believe that a stranger in the town is the real Government Inspector.

The Government Inspector written in 1835 by Gogol is an hilarious satire about corruption in a world where, increasingly desperate to hide their wrongdoings and keep the supposed Government Inspector happy, everyone loses their moral compass.

WHY? An updated version Gogol’s classic satire - faithful to the themes of the original. Expect engaging, accessible, exhilarating theatre

John-Luke Roberts: All I Wanna Do Is [FX: GUNSHOTS]

One of the Edinburgh Fringe's most celebrated talents of recent times sets out on his first full national tour.

John-Luke Roberts' show this year was a complete sell-out run and one of the most talked about shows of the festival: a dizzying avant-garde ride through the mind of a gifted comic-philosopher. One with a blue moustache. Who thinks far more about the Spice Girls than anyone should. A masterclass in prop, clown, costume and Mel C-themed comedy.

And that's all we can tell you in the brochure, because his stupid title takes up the rest of the allotted space.

Suitable for ages 16+ years.

With the return of a figure from the past, long buried truths are forced to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare.

Lou Sanders: Shame Pig

Gabrielle once sang ‘dreams can come true’ and that’s lovely, but nothing to do with this show.

After sell-out, critically acclaimed runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and London, with both runs extended to meet high demand, Lou Sanders is back with a national tour. She brings stabby step mothers, alcohol issues and an unusual sexual encounter in LA with her.

This show is all about shame. Sanders has met some pigs – and been a mucky little pig herself – and now she’s rolling around in her own filth for your delight.

As seen and heard on 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Hypothetical, Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled, The Russell Howard Hour, Comic Relief and Radio 4’s Unbelievable Truth.

Duckie is a reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling, with a message of respect and self-acceptance at its core.

‘Totally engrossing… all are won over by the sheer magnetism of the performance’ ★★★★★ The Reviews Hub

Family-friendly glamour and glitz take centre stage as critically-acclaimed cabaret star Le Gateau Chocolat breaks out of his shell as Duckie, in his first work for children.

A classic tale of identity and belonging told through music, narration and dress-up, topped with Le Gateau Chocolat’s distinctive baritone vocals.

Why Mummy Doesn’t Give A **** - An Evening with Gill Sims

Author of online sensation Peter and Jane, Gill Sims is the number one best-selling author behind Why Mummy Drinks, its follow up Why Mummy Swears and the recently announced Why Mummy Doesn't Give a...

Join Gill as she is interviewed about her blog, books, character and much more! There will be readings from her books and also a chance to ask Gill questions from the audience. Books will be available to purchase and sign as well.

Why Mummy Drinks spent over six months in the Sunday Times bestsellers Top Ten and was the number one bestselling debut hardback novel of 2017.

Mummy has an idea... when she can get away from all the other ideas, that the world is full of mums who go to advanced yoga classes, get tiddly on a half glass of white wine, and attend polite book clubs.

Mummy does not want to go quietly into that good night, of women with sensible haircuts who live only for their family and stand in the playground trying to trump each other by bragging about their offspring's academic achievements, extracurricular activities, and their latest overseas holidays.

Instead, she clutches a large and full glass of wine, muttering 'FML' over and over again, until she remembers that great idea...

Calligraphy: Uncials & Quill Cutting

Led by Stuart Maxwell.

Uncial is an ancient script, but also much used in modern day life too. Look at any high street or advert and you are sure to find the echo of this script somewhere. Best known for its use in the Book of Kells and St Cuthbert’s Book of St John, this script is ideal for beginners or experienced calligraphers to use in creating unique pieces of calligraphic art.

Quills are an ancient form of writing tool. Typically using the flight feathers of swans, from where the word ‘pen’ originates, it is still a tool often used by modern calligraphers. Quills offer a very flexible form of writing, and with a little practice are not difficult to create and use.
