Badapple Theatre Company Presents:
The Daily Bread

16th October

PREMIERE: An original comedy-drama by Kate Bramley, starring Colin Scott-Moncrieff

August de Ville is a master baker and his tiny village bakery is the talk of the town, as the WI ladies flock for miles to sample his sumptuous sponge and beautiful buns.

‘Couldn’t meet a nicer feller’, the village proclaim. But does the cheery facade hide a dark secret? That he shares the same name as the hated newspaper magnate- responsible for hiding the truth of the Bottledale bank crash- is, August claims, just a sad coincidence.
Expect a riotous night of clowning, comedy, Machiavellian subterfuge and live baking!

An Evening with Henry VIII

28th February

Undoubtedly our country’s most colourful monarch, the King aged in his early 50s, appears in the most splendid bejewelled and golden costume; a near replica of the famous Holbein portrait.

This portrayal of the King in the later years of his life is based upon the most detailed research. He recounts his life, telling of his wives, children, and the events of his long reign in a most forceful fashion. He is ill and is greatly pained by his badly infected leg and, although recently married to his sixth wife, he appears an angry and vengeful man. This is a highly acclaimed and powerful presentation that is offered in the form of an ‘audience’ with the King, during the course of which, the public may question and petition their Monarch.

Blonde Sheep Events Ltd Presents:
An Evening of Mediumship with Tony Stockwell

28th May

The popular star of TV’s Street Psychic, Psychic Private Eyes and Psychic Academy, Tony Stockwell demonstrates his belief that those who have passed can communicate with their loved ones, all delivered with emotion, sensitivity and empathy. Remarkably compelling, amazingly detailed and always humorous. We hope that nobody can fail to come away untouched by the experience.
