Marlon Solomon - Conspiracy Theory: A Lizard's Tale

Marlon's a Jew. This didn't bother him much until he discovered that some people he knew didn't believe the Holocaust happened.

From 9/11 to shape-shifting lizards and Holocaust denial, this is a darkly comic tale of one man's journey through the conspiracy underworld. Marlon explores why conspiracy theories are more popular than ever, how fake news gives fresh currency to ancient slander and how this all relates to current issues in the Labour Party. It's a comic tale which is no laughing matter.

Conspiracy Theory: A Lizard's Tale is a piece of documentary theatre, in 2018 it became the first one-person show to be performed in the Houses of Parliament. It also won Best Spoken Word at Greater Manchester Fringe Festival in the same year.

WHY? 'Funny, moving, at some points deeply disturbing, and provides absolutely essential context for the worst aspects of how we live now' David Baddiel

Andy Parsons: Healing the Nation (tour warm up)

Boris Johnson replaces Theresa May as PM. Show REWRITTEN.

The 2019 General Election happens. Show REWRITTEN again.

COVID-19 arrives – show REWRITTEN for the third time. So the 2019/2020 Healing the Nation Tour has become the 2019/2020/2021 Healing the Nation Tour, and as the tour has gone on, there’s been less and less healing and more and more of the opposite.

Admittedly, I could have changed the title but it still seemed strangely appropriate - and some of the gigs have been rescheduled so it would prove confusing to existing ticketholders if the ticket said 'Healing the Nation' but the show was now called 'My Life in Ballet'.

So, we have the serially rewritten Healing the Nation Tour 2019/2020 now extended into 2021, not so much due to popular demand but more lack of open venues. And with negative powers of healing. Yet this latest, very new version of the show is my favourite so far.

Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horrors (PG)

Nosferatu (1922) is arguably the film that gave birth to the horror genre.

Notable as the first cinematic interpretation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, its combination of expressionistic acting and unforgettable images render it just as powerful and unsettling today as when it first thrilled cinema goers nearly 100 years ago.

Chris Green’s new score was commissioned by English Heritage for a live outdoor screening of the film at Dracula’s spiritual home of Whitby Abbey. The music is a haunting blend of electronic and acoustic instruments performed live by the composer and, combined with FW Murnau’s iconic images, makes for a genuinely remarkable and unique cinematic experience.

Chris has worked in a variety of musical genres including folk, theatre and early music. He’s a regular musician at Shakespeare’s Globe and was also one of the musicians on BBC’s Poldark, appearing in series 1 and 2. He also writes and composes.

Geoff Norcott: I Blame the Parents

The fourth national tour for Geoff Norcott, following on the back of Conswervative, Traditionalism and Taking Liberties.

This time Geoff talks less politics (alright, there will probably be a bit), but this brand-new show will mostly explore personal responsibility, parenting and who should take the blame when things go wrong.

Whatever happened to the idea of personal responsibility? In the age of victimhood, it seems like whatever’s wrong with your life it can be blamed on someone else. Governments, employers… some bigot from four hundred years ago.

Where did it go wrong? It has to be the parents. Every generation there’s an opportunity for a new set of mums and dads to set their kids straight and make a stand against whatever trendy nonsense is currently doing the rounds. But do we? Or is it easier to give into fear and the pursuit of a quiet life?

Geoff has realised he’s also a bag of contradictions. Raised on a south London council estate by two maverick parents, there’s plenty he has to sift through. His Dad was a trade union man who obsessed over stocks and shares. His mum was a closet chauvinist and far too frank on the subject of sex.

With a child of his own, Geoff spies a one-off chance for his family to finally get it right and produce a balanced human being, but can he filter out his own bollocks before it gets to his son?

Martin Turner ex Wishbone Ash - Wishbone Gold

Martin Turner and his band return to the Courtyard Theatre to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the formation of the original Wishbone Ash. The band will perform another classic album in its entirety – 1971's Pilgrimage.

Wishbone Ash was formed by West Country musicians Martin Turner and Steve Upton, in 1969.

Five decades later, the music of the classic line-ups of Wishbone Ash continues to delight audiences worldwide through both live performances and a rich legacy of recorded work that continues to be enjoyed by fans old and new.

Martin Turner continues to perform the band’s best loved works with his current line-up, which features guitarists Danny Willson and Misha Nikolic and drummer Tim Brown.

The Spring 2020 Wishbone Gold tour will see Martin and his band performing 1971’s iconic Pilgrimage album – as well as other favourites from the classic era of Wishbone Ash, including Argus highlights.

WHY? The Wishbone Gold tour will mark the very first time Pilgrimage has been performed in its entirety on stage and this tour is an event that no Wishbone Ash aficionado will want to miss
