IODS PRESENTS... ANIMAL FARM


Animal Farm is a fable with a sting.

Much has been written about the threat of Communism, but it remained to the late George Orwell, farsighted British author of the brilliant and frightening 1984, to expose the Russian experiment for what it really is; an idealist's dream, converted by realists into a nightmare.

Led by three pigs, the disgruntled animals overthrow their human owner, take control of the farm and create a new society in which: "All Animals Are Equal." The Pigs are first to take charge, but as each of them vie for power, the society becomes corrupted and the animals are led into a dark and brutal existence, in which "Some Animals Are More Equal Than Others."

 

In this timely allegory, you will meet beasts whose prototypes have dominated news headlines for many fearful years. Opening on a note of joyous triumph for the creatures who have emancipated themselves from the cruel mastery of a human owner, the play mounts inexorably to a climax of disillusionment in which the other animals discover themselves now subject to the rule of even more ruthless autocrats: the greedy, cunning pigs.

 

Intermingling humour and drama, Animal Farm wrings the emotions of its listeners, leaving audiences shaken with the tale of a tragedy that happened in a mythical barnyard far away but could happen in our own back yard.

Disney's Beauty and the Beast


Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the wonderful songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. The original Broadway production ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.


The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

Four voices that defined a decade: Dusty Springfield, Cilla Black, Lulu and Petula Clark.


 Between them they had many of the very greatest songs of the 60s. Do you remember ... Downtown ... This Is My Song ... If You Go Away ... Shout ... Love Loves To Love Love ... Alfie ... Anyone Who Had A Heart ... You're My World ... You Don't Have To Say You Love Me?

Through the magic of theatre, 'Dusty, Cilla, Lulu & Pet' will transport you to a TV studio for a typical 1960s music show. And don't worry, although back then there were only two television channels and much of the output was still in black-and-white, this show is full of colour.

Avalon Entertainment Presents...


Chloe Petts and Garrett Millerick: Edinburgh Fringe Comedy Previews.


Chloe Petts’ is “one of the most compelling young comics” (Brian Logan, The Guardian) and “clearly a rising star whose name will soon be in lights” (Bruce Dessau, The Evening Standard). This has established her as one of the most exciting up & coming acts on the circuit. She’s currently on screens every Saturday morning as a guest on Sky Sports News.


Chloe returned to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this summer with her new show If You Can’t Say Anything Nice which sold-out in the first week of the festival which led to adding 6 extra shows. Last year she performed her debut show Transience to sold-out audiences at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and for two 5-night runs at Soho Theatre, which led to a tour around the rest of the UK which ended with extra date added at London’s Leicester Square Theatre. Receiving rave reviews from publications including The Guardian,  The Telegraph, The Evening Standard. With 5 stars from Gwendolyn Smith (The i) describing the show as a “barnstormer of a Fringe debut.”


An alumna of the prestigious Pleasance Comedy Reserve, shortlisted for the BBC Comedy Award, finalist of Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year Awards 2017 and runner-up in the Funny Women Awards 2017. As well as supporting Ed Gamble on his Electric 2022 UK tour and Frank Skinner during his West End run. Chloe was selected performed at Melbourne International Comedy Festival in April.


On television and radio, Chloe has been a regular on The Frank Skinner Show (Absolute Radio), World Cup Breakfast (Sky Sports) for the Men’s Football World Cup 2022 and previously for Good Morning Euros (Sky Sports) for the UEFA Women’s Euros, and has also appeared on MOTDx (BBC), Jonathan Ross’s Comedy Club (ITV), The Stand-Up Sketch Show (ITV2), Richard Osman’s House of Games (BBC Two), Random Acts (Channel 4), Hypothetical (Dave), Fighting Talk (BBC Radio 5 Live), BBC Three Quickies (BBC Three), as well as recently winning Pointless Celebrities (BBC One). In terms of podcasts, Chloe has appeared on Off Menu, Films to Buried With and co-hosted The Guilty Feminist.


Garrett Millerick is a phenomenal stand-up comic, Garrett’s breakout television performance was on the hit US late-night talk show Conan (TBS). His live show Sunflower became one of the best reviewed and most talked about shows of 2018, both at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and subsequently at London’s Soho Theatre. The show saw packed houses for both runs and regularly added shows to cope with demand. The show was Time Out London’s No.1 Comedy Pick for February 2019, and saw Garrett receive a nomination for ‘Breakthrough Act’ at the 2019 Chortle Awards. Garrett has since followed up the show with Smile and Just Trying to Help. The Times called Smile one of the stand out shows of the year and The British Comedy Guide named it one of the best reviewed shows of the year. All three shows transferred to London before touring the UK and have been recorded by 800 Pound Gorilla Records to stream and purchase internationally.


His new show Just Trying to Help was nominated for best show at the Leicester Comedy Festival and also received critical acclaim at the 2022 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, being described as “a performance of rare force and intensity that overpowers his audience…It’s a travesty that he’s not much better known outside the comedy cognoscenti” (★★★★1/2, Chortle). The show later transferred to the Soho Theatre and is currently touring across the UK.


Garrett is currently working on a new sitcom which previously recorded a pilot for Audible produced by Hat Trick Productions and starring Jack Dee and Meera Syal. He previously created and co-hosted hit podcast Laughable with Jayde Adams and

Red Richardson which was picked by the Guardian as one of the funniest podcasts to listen to during the pandemic.

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's production of Macbeth


Have you ever seen a really terrible Am Dram show, where everything is wrong, from the ridiculous casting to the pretentious programme? Where everything goes wrong, from the introductory music, via the hopeless sound and lighting effects to the inept and unrehearsed curtain call? Well now is your chance to witness such a production!


The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society mounts yet another assault on the classics with a startlingly original production of Macbeth staged to get them to the Welwyn Garden City Finals. Under the carefully mascara'd eye of adjudicator George Peach, all events conspire hilariously against them.

Global Productions presents


London Assurance


‘(It’s) equal to anything yet known in the way of theatrical embellishment,’ opined The Times newspaper after the opening night at the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden of Dion Boucicault’s 1841 comedy London Assurance. A remarkably assured piece of work for a twenty-one year-old playwright the production excelled in its dandyish wit and its distancing devices, to Pinero and beyond: and, most of all, to Wilde, whom Boucicault encouraged and supported. The splendid tensions it sets up – town v country, father v son, and artifice v authenticity – are traditionally neat and well made. Considered by many critics as the Irish genius of London theatre in the age of Dickens, Boucicault created – in the egotistical and vain Sir Harcourt Courtly and the mischievous and fun-loving Lady gay Spanker – two of the great comic roles of the English stage.

 

In this version presented by Global Theatre Productions and adapted from the original script in 2010 by the award-winning dramatist Richard Bean, we meet the preening, foppish Courtley, who is lured away from the epicenter of fashionable London by the promise of a rich and beautiful bride several decades his junior. He soon discovers, however, that the exuberant character of her hearty cousin, Lady Spanker, eclipses those of his future wife’s charms. What follows is a rumbustious, and celebrated romp filled with larger-than-life characters and hilarious set pieces.

An environmental quest for ages 5+


Whilst searching for hidden treasure, a famously selfish pirate captain has left a once beautiful tropical island littered with rubbish and its inhabitants struggling to survive.  It's up to Maggie and Roy to save it.  The trouble is… they’re REALLY not friends.  Teleported from their school trip at a maritime museum into the centre of a swashbuckling adventure in the Amazon, will they learn to work together, win the race to find the legendary gold – and restore the place to its natural glory?


Can YOU help us defeat this dastardly litterbug pirate…?

Join these colourful characters (and some perky puppets) as they set sail on their quest!  Explore new habitats and learn about the importance of reducing, reusing and recycling; caring for endangered animals; and looking after our world.


And come dressed as a fearsome member of his crew if ye dare!  Arrrrrrr!

The Dresser


It’s 1942. The Blitz is at its height overhead, ‘Sir’ about to perform ‘Lear’ in a run-down provincial theatre with an elderly largely untalented cast is exhausted, ill and struggling to remember which play he is in let alone any of his lines.

His long-suffering wife, bitter at his frequent infidelities, is at the end of her tether, and temptation lurks yet again in the shapely form of Irene, a new recruit to the company.

It’s time for the curtain to go up but ‘Sir’ is nowhere near ready either mentally or physically.

Can his increasingly tipsy dresser and his devoted Stage Manager get him to the stage on time?

Both tense and funny, this play is a must for lovers of theatre.

Remarkably compelling, amazingly detailed and always humorous...


The popular star of TV’s Street Psychic, Psychic Private Eyes and Psychic Academy, Tony Stockwell has a long-established credibility as one of the top Intuitive Mediums and has shared the stage all round the world with international mediums such as Colin Fry, James van Praagh and Lisa Williams. Tony demonstrates his belief that those who have passed can communicate with their loved ones with detailed messages frequently including names, dates and locations, all delivered with emotion, sensitivity and empathy. The evening may include psychometry, photographs readings and psychic prediction.


Recent legislative guidelines insist that any Evening of Mediumship should be billed ‘for entertainment purposes’.

Tony certainly uses his natural wit, showmanship and Cockney charisma to entertain but more important, Mediumship has the potential to change someone’s life and instil in them a sense of peace, comfort and purpose. We hope that nobody can fail to come away untouched by the experience.
