A VIEW FROM THE EDGE - 'OWDAYADO THEATRE
Wed 1st March 2017 at 19:30 £15.00 | £12.00
Private eye and troubled sleeper Charlie Daniels is hired by the seductive Elise Hillerman to investigate the disappearance of her husband -a prominent gallery owner. Meanwhile, writers Charlotte and Dan struggle to write the script of their new noir-inspired theatre show about an art forgery ring. As scenes spin, fragment and entangle with each other one question arises: whose reality is real?
A View from the Edge is a slick and surprising show where the search for the truth provokes a mind-bending journey through the world of dreams, imagination and 'real life'. With its sharp wit, quick pace and a heavy dose of noir style; from the classic to the neo, A View from the Edge also takes influence from cult filmmakers Charlie Kaufman and David Lynch. A View from the Edge is a highly original show that will not only delight and intrigue you but will keep you guessing 'til the end. Pay attention now. It's about to get weird...
A View from the Edge is 'Owdyado Theatre's fourth show and will be touring across the country throughout 2017.

Derek Ryan has become one of Ireland's leading entertainers and makes a welcome visit to Cirencester in April for a performance of chart hits along with a sprinkling of country classics. His theatre shows contain much of the music featured on his studio albums including many of his own self-penned songs, 'God's Plan', 'Life Is A River' and 'Hold on to your Hat'. Derek's most recent album, "One Good Night" topped the Irish charts. His rise to stardom on the country scene has been phenomenal and there are few country stars who can claim to have made such an impact in just over two years. Derek has been credited as one of the people instrumental in reinvigorated Irish Country Music by opening it to a new young audience. His concert tour has sold out in venues across the country and earlier this year, he took home not one, but two awards from the huge ceremony, held by Ireland's biggest selling newspaper, The Sunday World. Derek was awarded with "Entertainer of the Year" and "Album of the Year' for his number one album, 'The Simple Things'.More information on Derek Ryan is available from derekryanmusic.com.

Jeremy Hardy is in his 4th decade as a stand-up this year. That's a more dramatic way of saying he started 33 years ago and, without a lottery win, probably has at least another 33 years to go. In 2014, the tenth series of Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation was broadcast on Radio 4. He is also well known for his appearances on The News Quiz and I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue. Indeed, Alan Bennett recently said he likes him "but he's only on the radio".
However, Jeremy isn't only on the radio, his television credits include: Jack Dee's Election Helpdesk (BBC2), QI (BBC1), Mock The Week (BBC2), Grumpy Old Men (BBC1), Back In The Day (BBC2), Not Tonight With John Sergeant (BBC2).
