Hancock’s Half Hour

Wednesday 27thFebruary at 7:30PM

Apollo Theatre Company presents…

Galton & Simpson’s Hancock’s Half Hour

From the producers of the critically acclaimed tours of Round the Horne and The Goon Show comes another radio comedy classic live on stage.

In 1954, Tony Hancock burst onto the airwaves of the BBC Light Programme with a comedy show unlike anything the British public had heard before.  Playing a less successful version of himself and surrounded by a cast of fellow comedy greats including Sid James, Hattie Jacques and Kenneth Williams, Hancock’s Half Hour was one of the first programmes in the genre we now know as sitcom.

Written by young up-and-comers Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, who later went on to create Steptoe and SonHancock’s Half Hour redefined radio comedy and has had people laughing non-stop for the past 65 years.

So come and take a trip to 23 Railway Cuttings, East Cheam to join ‘the lad himself’ and his motley crew for three classic episodes of this hilarious show.

Cast includes James Hurn (Deadringers, Hancock & Co.) as Tony Hancock and Colin Elmer (Round the Horne) as Kenneth Williams.

Virago

Wednesday 27thFebruary at 7:30PM

‘Virago’ is a new dance-digital solo production from Sonia Sabri, Artistic Director of SSCo, collaborating with Ludic Rooms.
‘Virago’ is vibrant, compelling, brave and dynamic. It explores the light vs dark and the real vs fairytale versions of female existence, teasing the audience with perceptions and misconceptions of the woman and gender.
Virago means ‘female warrior’ in Latin and Vira is ‘the brave one’ in Hindi. A Virago is a woman of great stature, strength, and courage. The show explores the choices and decisions we must make as we go through life regardless of gender: there is no clear path to do the right thing, only options, and not all of them are easy.
Sonia’s signature ‘Urban Kathak’ language merges on stage with digital artistry, alongside a sound-score combining spoken word and music, with rich and diverse influences: a cacophony of voices from Europe, the Middle East, South Asia and Africa, representing and speaking to women worldwide, but appealing to all of our humanity, regardless of gender and culture.
The digital elements bring a new experimental layer of sound, light and image manipulation into this unique sensory dialogue with the live body.
‘Virago’ is uncompromising, thought provoking and inspiring. It is both a protest and a celebration. Come and be part of the revolution.
Virago is a co-production with mac birmingham and The Old Rep Birmingham

Tuesday 19thFebruary to Sunday 3rdMarch from 10AM to 4PM

The paintings on show represent nearly forty years of work .  The subject matter and content of the work is simply about people , places and time . “Tempus Fugit ” is the  title of one of the paintings and the exhibition referring  to a specific person my wife, the location is a small chapel in Italy and the time was early afternoon 2010. Thus time in this case is location and person specific . Painting for myself  is just as much about what I do with my  time and what I may become in the future as denoting my experiences. Painting  allows me to objectify to some degree  experiences in life since time can be so fleeting.

The paintings are predominantly oil on canvas whilst more recent works have mixed media elements within them . They range in scale from small figure studies to larger panoramic paintings of landscapes and figures with a new series of patchwork / hand painted collaged images based on the writings of Joseph Campbell a comparative mythologist
