Mnemonic

A performance by Theatre Memoire

High in the Ötzal Alps a man has died, and would be found later partially frozen, but not in a matter of days. He won’t be found for 5,300 years.

Come with us as we take you on a journey spanning not only continents, but centuries. Witness the discovery of ‘the ice man’. Observe the search for an estranged father, and the yearning for a lost love.

Mnemonic challenges the subjectivity of memory and the ability to comprehend identity through the physical traces left behind. It’s an intricately woven narrative, one that is intelligent, unique and, at times, funny.

Ayesha Hazarika: State of the Nation

Politics, power and how we lost the plot.

Ayesha Hazarika, MBE, started her career as a stand-up comedian playing clubs across the country. She then took what she thought was a natural diversion into the Labour Party as a Special Adviser working for Gordon Brown, Harriet Harman and Ed Miliband.

Since leaving front line politics she’s become a much sought after commentator writing for the FT, Guardian, Evening Standard, New Statesman and Grazia.

Ayesha has also returned to her stand-up roots. Her one woman show Tales from the Pink Bus was a sell-out hit at the 2016 Edinburgh festival and she's been in huge demand on TV and radio recently starring as a guest on Matt Forde’s Unspun for Dave.

Further credits include regular appearances on Good Morning Britain (ITV), Sky Papers (Sky News), The Andrew Marr Show (BBC1), Newsnight (BBC2), The Agenda (ITV) and The Today Programme (BBC Radio4).

Ayesha lifts the lid on what life’s really like behind the scenes at Westminster with brutal honesty and humour and asks what's next for British politics.

The State of the Nation is one of the best things to come out of British politics in a long time.

Katy Brand - I Was a Teenage Christian

Katy Brand’s hit Edinburgh Festival show I Was a Teenage Christian is an honest, fascinating and funny exploration of her self-imposed conversion and total immersion in evangelical Christianity.

One Sunday, aged 13, Katy went to a local church service and became a fundamentalist Christian. From then on she attended church four times a week. For seven years she put the 'fun' into fundamentalism... and the 'mental'. She was an obnoxious, self-important dick, but at least she knew she was going to heaven.

Now she's not so sure. Katy will relive her glory days of certainty and judgement (and unrequited love…) whilst trying to figure out what the hell was going on in her own head.

Katy won a British Comedy award for her TV sketch series Katy Brand’s Big Ass Show in 2008 and has since written for and appeared in numerous films, TV programmes and radio shows.

Miki

Christmas 2017

Miki, Polar Bear and Penguin live in a very far away place. It’s an icy world where nothing ever grows. One midwinter eve, they make a wish, and Miki embarks on a magical adventure…in search of a star.

Based on the book by Stephen Mackey, Miki is an inspiring story about friendship, courage and adventure. It features amazing underwater creatures, songs to sing along to and extraordinary puppetry.

Mark Watson: MW

After more than 100 dates on the road in 2016 with his best-reviewed show to date, 'I'm Not Here', and a similarly marathon effort with the previous tour, Mark Watson is amazed to find there are STILL some areas of the country he's not visited much, and some towns that have been neglected altogether.

It's hard to be everywhere at once, so he's narrowed it down to a sensible plan: for the next tour, Watson will only visit places beginning with M or W, his initials - as they've already shown a commitment by having those names in the first place. A few of these will be favourite old haunts like Winchester or Manchester, but quite a few of them are the result of Googling and quite a number are so remote that we won't know they definitely exist until we get there. Also, some aren't actually towns so much as trains (from Marylebone to Wycombe), or ferries (across the Mersey), or a helicopter museum (in the double-point-scoring Middle Wallop).

The material will be a mixture of the classic and the never-before-seen. And in some cases a fair bit of it will be about being on a train.
