Learn Something New

Tues, 16th May – 7:30pm – PubhD – The Vat and Fiddle

The talks are at “pub level” so it doesn’t matter if you don’t know anything about the topics!

Theatre… In the Cinema

Thurs, 18th May – Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? – Broadway

Thanks to National Theatre Live, we can enjoy West End plays live on a screen here in Nottingham. This production stars Imelda Staunton and Luke Treadaway and has had great reviews.

In the early hours of the morning, Martha, much to her husband George’s displeasure, has invited a couple to their home for some after-party drinks.

Musical Comedy

Sat, 19th May – 8pm – Rhymes Against Humanity – The Nottingham Actors Studio

What if you could choose the title of a brand new musical and then see it performed instantly? That’s what is going to happen to one audience member when the East Midlands’ favourite musical improv team takes to the stage.

When you arrive you will be asked to write down the title of a musical that’s never been seen before; if yours is drawn out of the hat, Rhymes Against Humanity will perform a brand new, fully improvised musical immediately – no scripts, no conferring, no pre-planning, just totally spontaneous musical madness!
