Forthcoming Shows and Films
Sunday 3 December 7.30 p.m.
Dave Mynne (Rabbit Theatre): A Christmas Carol
Joy to all mankind... Bah! Spend an evening in the company of a mean, tight-fisted, squeezing, grasping, clutching old miser. Bah! Watch horrified as Ebenezer Scrooge is haunted by four creepy ghosts (wooo-oooh) each one more terrifying than the last. Bah! Sob at the bedside of a tiny, malnourished child riven with rickets. Bah! In their inimitable style the team that brought you Great Expectations, Dracula and The Odyssey (Greek stuff!) will now take you on a grim journey through the dark, dismal streets of Victorian London, where Ignorance and Want cower together. Using Dickens’ original words combined with anarchic comedy. Comedy? Bah! Celebrate the festive season with a mesmerising one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ timeless, transformative story: A CHRISTMAS CAROL. Bah! And Bah!
Suitable for adults and older children (8+) Tickets: £9 adult £7 child/concession £25 family.
Grampound Film Club: Hidden Figures
Three brilliant African-American women at NASA -- Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) -- serve as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn (Glen Powell) into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race and galvanized the world. Nominated for 3 Oscars.
Grampound Film Club: Twentieth Century Women
In 1979 Santa Barbara, California, Dorothea Fields is a determined single mother in her mid-50s who is raising her adolescent son, Jamie, at a moment brimming with cultural change and rebellion. Dorothea enlists the help of two younger women — Abbie, a free-spirited punk artist living as a boarder in the Fields' home and Julie, a savvy and provocative teenage neighbour — to help with Jamie's upbringing.
Saturday 20 January 7.30 p.m.
Publick Transport: We are Bronte
Superb physical comedy, Edinburgh festival hit on a national tour.
Review: "The title sounds literary, but don’t be fooled: you won’t need to know much about the Brontë sisters to enjoy this wacky homage to their work. Performers Sarah Corbett and Angus Barr re-enact a self-described “amalgam” of Brontë tales, their increasingly ludicrous artistic endeavours deliver consistent laughs and conjure up some genuinely striking imagery too. It’s done with skill and elegance though, and more than once the audience laughed at a piece of physical theatre that I secretly found rather beautiful and inspired.”
£9 adult £7 child/concession £25 family. Performance plus Q & A with the company.
