LaPelle’s Factory’s ‘The Black Cat’
Oct 24 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

BC image 1

LaPelle’s Factory’s The Black Cat is a renegade retelling of Edgar Allen Poes twisted tale.Two performers dismember the process of adaptation by reimagining a macabre classic with the cheekiest of glints in their eyes. An enigmatic writer has adapted Poe’s original story and handed scripts over to two performers who are now taking merciless liberties with the words – like a madman taking out a furious rage on a helpless pet.

The show had a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe last year at the Underbelly, and has been booked for Pulse Festival this summer. Here are a couple of quotes from the Fringe run

‘‘You don’t have to read Poe’s original tale before seeing this clever, sideways adaptation, but it will increase your appreciation for the ingenuity shown by its devisers and performers, Olwen Davies and Ollie Smith,… Both performers pivot suddenly from comedy to drama exceptionally well.’’

THE SCOTSMAN

‘‘Fun, quirky and irreverent … charismatic performers, Olwen Davies and Ollie Smith, do an excellent job … funny and genuinely  engaging to watch.’’ BROADWAY BABY

‘‘Clever yet playful, savage yet amiable, this ingenious new play reflects the dualistic qualities of the feline it depicts.’’  EXEUNT

ARCADIA (film) + Short film with live score
Oct 29 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

draft_arcadia_under_1mb-1

Directed by Paul Wright, Music by Adrian Utley (Portishead) and Will Gregory (Goldfrapp)

Arcadia, the BAFTA award-winning Scottish director Paul Wright has repurposed archive material to tell a provocative story for our times. Set to an original score by musicians Adrian Utley (Portishead) and Will Gregory (Goldfrapp), Arcadia blends a mixture of film and TV footage from the BFI National Archive and regional archives around the UK, creating a powerful mosaic of images, sounds and moods, taking in folk carnivals and masked parades, hunting and harvesting, communes and raves, mechanisation, environmental destruction, fires, floods, storms. Arcadia reminds us what happens when our connection to nature, and each other, frays and unravels. By exploring and asking ourselves what we have gained and lost in the last century, perhaps we will discover something of what we’ll need to survive in the next.

Accompanied by an introductory folk horror short with live score from OSE Associate & Violinist Rosa Irwin Clark

OTIZ CANNELLONI: Reluctant Messiah, Man of The People, ‘O’ Level Woodwork (comedy)
Nov 8 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

 

Otiz.mono.in card

OTIZ CANNELLONI

                                                                              

Reluctant Messiah, Man of The People, ‘O’ Level Woodwork

 

               

 

Otiz Cannelloni combines the illusion of magic and the wit of stand up to produce a hybrid comic creation. With a mind more suited to testing crash helmets, his performance fluctuates between sheer genius and downright stupidity. Just when you suspect he doesn’t have a clue, Cannelloni removes all doubt.

 

When this man is on stage the dressing room empties, as the rest of the comics rush to watch and learn from his mistakes. It’s taken years of practice to make something so simple look so difficult.

 

One of the first three comedians to play in Saudi Arabia.

 

Half of the legendary Brown Paper Bag Brothers alongside John Hegley.

“One of the most purely entertaining and enjoyable shows I have ever seen.” THE SCOTSMAN

 

Despite various television appearances – The Stand Up Show BBC 1 – Stuff The

White Rabbit BBC 2 – producers are prepared to forgive and forget, mostly forget.

 

 

 

QUOTES….

 

“Master of Mirth and Minimalist Magic …Delightful.”    TIME OUT

 

 

“A magical Wag. Bewitching.”         GUARDIAN

 

 

“Sheer hilarity that clearly no one wanted to see end.”     THE STAGE

 

 

“A laugh a minute.”           THE AGE. MELBOURNE. AUSTRALIA

 

 

“Don’t we have laws against this sort of thing?”   SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST

 

“The highlight of the night…. the downbeat patter is exemplary, full of self-deprecating asides and splendidly daft on-liners.”  CHORTLE

 

“Beautifully understated gags, wonderful English self – depreciation…silly like a supply teacher on his last day.”  MILTON JONES

‘Where Is Mrs Christie?’
Nov 9 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Mrs Christie 077aAgatha Christie A4 Jpeg

Agatha Christie was one of the greatest thriller writers of all time and certainly the most prolific. In 1926, she was at the centre of a mystery as perplexing as any of her fiction, a series of events which sparked one of the biggest and most extensive police hunts in history. Her crashed car was discovered in Surrey and the famous author was missing, presumed dead by many, for eleven days. However, she was eventually found at a luxury hotel in Harrogate. She claimed then, and for the rest of the life, that she was suffering from amnesia and remembered nothing. Neither the press nor the police believed her.

Actor Liz Grand (previous one-woman show ‘The Second Best Bed’) presents her new one-woman show ‘Where Is Mrs Christie?’ Did Agatha Christie lie, and if so why? Did she suffer from amnesia? Was it a publicity stunt? Or was there a darker secret involved in this disappearance which was to affect her for the rest of her life?  The answer to all these questions will, as in all good thrillers, be revealed!
