What’s On – Friday 27 October

Rob Rouse, 7:30pm – Victoria Theatre Green Room Bar

Tour Flyer Pic Base

He’s married, has two kids, a dog and an eye-watering mortgage in these times of austerity and uncertainty, but remains resolute that a career in unpredictable world of comedy was absolutely the right way to go. (It’s far too late to try something else now.)

Rob takes this trademark comedic storytelling to a career high in this full length show. He leads us on an irresistibly hilarious journey of enforced introspection that has taught him to relinquish any attempts to control his life and to face down, literally, one of the most awkward situations you’re ever likely to hear about.

Tickets for this event are available via the Victoria Theatre website.

 

The Six Wives of Henry VIII, 7:30pm – Square Chapel Arts Centre

Two Actors. Too Many Characters. One Big Ego

Howard Coggins looks like Henry VIII. There’s no escaping that. Stu McLoughlin doesn’t really look like any of the wives, but he’s going to give it a go.

After their previous self-funded two-man historical drama is savaged in the press, Howard and Stu are at their wits end. Then they hit upon an idea for a show that could change everything…

The Six Wives of Henry VIII was an undisputed hit at the Bristol Old Vic, and with live original music, embroidery, barbie dolls, silly songs and historical hysteria, this promises to be an ill-researched lesson in cross-dressing Tudor history that you’ll never forget.

Tickets for this event are available via the Square Chapel Box Office
