Bed follows the life and relationships of Phil from his first teenage love to his last love. Set exclusively in different bedrooms over the course of 5 of Phil's most important relationships, this comedic drama discovers Phil and his partners most shocking truths and deepest secrets. A drama that opens the door to conversations usually kept behind closed ones. Written by one of Australia's leading new playwrights Brendan Cowell, Bed is a celebration of love and youth.

Directed by John Wood (S-27) and brought to the Royal Exchange by Pencil Case Productions (The Carnivores)

DAD. JOKE

online tickets available HERE

 

 Comedy. Join Swiv on a free dive into his past and our future. He emerges with pearls – for us and his son. On Gough and slippery dips, choc tops and dick pumps. A rousing, ridiculous how-not-to-guide on parenting and politics in our increasingly mad world. Simone Whetton, 702 ABC Radio called it "vulnerable, excoriating and hilarious in one loveable mixture! Mark Swivel lays it all out on the table in this very personal account of life as a long-distance dad". Phillip Adams gave his last show, How Deep Is Your Love? a much coveted a koala stamp. The Beat said it was "gripping and unique". He's been on Studio 10 and Late Night Live. Go figure.
In Dad. Joke. Swiv answers every question a young person can ask from 'should men wee sitting down?' to 'honestly, what are we to do about this capitalism caper in these post-truth times?' This is world-changing, wittering, brilliant banter. Warning: contains only one dad joke per performance (thankfully). Trailer: https://youtu.be/YhBbiDi4NQk.

TRY AND STOP ME

 tickets available HERE

 Lewis Spears is an unstoppable force.

Three years after stepping on stage for the first time, “Try and Stop Me” is Lewis’ third tour around Australia and his best work to date.

With over 200,000 fans across YouTube and Facebook and an incredibly popular comedy podcast, Lewis is one of the biggest online entertainers in the country and singlehandedly demolishes the stereotype that people who are big on the internet suck live.

A charismatic and divisive performer, Lewis commands the stage like his own personal battleground. Striking down trends, critics, and mainstream culture alike.

Still completely independent, Lewis Spears is bringing his brand of confrontational stand-up comedy to Newcastle.

And if you don’t like it,

Try and stop him.

Sun 19th March
SAUERKRAUTS

Deta and Rob Rayner from The Beez present:

The Sauerkrauts!

A yodellin´, thigh slappin’, lederhosen wettin´  fest of German music from Deta  (accordion,vocals) and Rob (guitar, vocals) and featuring the Beatific Beats of  our Bavarian Boombox. You´ll thrill to comic classics from the likes of Rammstein and Kraftwerk; you´ll tear off that dirndl and shake a Teutonic Tailfeather when you catch a glimpse of Nena´s 99 Red Balloons; you´ll swoon to Marlene Dietrich´s  Lili Marlene but, most of all, you´ll be entertained-and that´s an order!

Deta and Rob always felt that the German Oeuvre was a little under represented in The Beez, so here they are to make amends with an evening of  Dancefloor -Compatible Deutsche Derring-do, featuring Deta´s fabulous „Brunhilde Bass“ accordion . One octave below the conventional accordion bass, this is an Alp-quaking  tone of Wagnerian proportions. Melded with Rob´s custom Höfner „Blitzkrieg“ guitar, it´s an irresistable rockin´ polka machine held together by the marching rhythms of a loop machine by the name of Wolfgang Amadeus and, of course, those gorgeous harmonies and cabaret sensibilties which  are the icing on the Schwarwälderkirschtorte.

Deta and Rob both hail from Berlin; their band The Beez performs regularly throughout Europe and Australia. They´ve appeared on ABC TV´s Spicks and Specks and at just about every  folk festival you care to think of. The Sauerkrauts will be touring Australia from January to May 2017.
