We Are Bronte is a madcap physical interpretation of the Bronte myth, taking the real and imaginary worlds of the Yorkshire siblings as inspiration. With only a handful of props, two performers deconstruct not only Gothic themes of love, madness and revenge, but also themselves.
"masters of their art"
"This is Bronte as you've never seen it before - and will never forget...Sarah Corbett and Angus Barr have devised a show the like of which may never come again...exquisite physical comedy...mad, delightfully silly, and very accomplished"
Lee Hurst is back on the road with his next stand up show... Comedy Show No. 9. It's a show, it's the 9th one and it's comedy. What else do you need to know? Come along for a night of laughs with that bald bloke you thought was dead.

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.
