Glory Meet Dan, Ben and Sami. Three wrestlers compelled over the ropes and into the ring to fight for glory. Three men wrestling with demons, life, each other.

Or do they have a different fight in mind? Only one hero can emerge. A new play from the writer of Partition and the award-winning* The Chef Show - *Glory* takes you inside the wrestling ring in this painfully funny, sweaty and gutsy story about what people will do to achieve glory.

Ian McKellen on stage with Tolkien, Shakespeare, Others and You *EXTRA DATE ADDED! Matinee performance at 2.30pm ON SALE NOW!* A message from Ian McKellen: I’m celebrating my 80th birthday by touring a new solo show to theatres I know well and a few that I don’t. The show starts with Gandalf and will probably end with an invitation to act with me on stage. In-between there will be anecdotes and acting. I open at my local arts centre in January and end up by August in Orkney. Live theatre has always been thrilling to me, as an actor and in the audience. Growing up in Lancashire, I was grateful to those companies who toured beyond London and I’ve always enjoyed repaying that debt by touring up and down the country myself, with the RSC, the National Theatre, Prospect Theatre, the Actors’ Company, as well as with commercial productions. My first professional job was at the newly-built Belgrade Theatre, living in a company flat on Corporation Street. I stayed a year, on £8.50 a week. “Ian McKellen On Stage” is anecdote as well as acting, so I’ll tell you a story or two about the old days. All profits will support talent development work at the Belgrade. See you there I hope! IAN McKELLEN ON STAGE is presented by Ambassador Theatre Group. Running time: approx. 2 hrs 30 mins ]]>

RESPECT to Aretha Life-long Aretha Franklin fan and power-house vocalist, Letitia George stars in this heartfelt and uplifting dedication to the Queen of Soul. Aretha Franklin’s extraordinary career as a singer and songwriter spanned over sixty years. She rose from church gospel singer to international stardom at a young age and is widely accepted as the finest female soul singer of our time. Her talent has always been unequalled. Massive hits including _A Natural Woman, Say a little Prayer, Chain of Fools, Until You Come Back to Me, Think, I Never Loved a Man_, and of course _Respect_, will ensure that Aretha’s legacy will continue forever. Whilst Letitia George will always be remembered for her breath-taking performances on series four of The Voice, she has gone on to forge an enviable reputation as one of the most passionate and hardworking soul singers around. Aretha’s sad passing has inspired Letitia and her outstanding backing band to attempt the seemingly impossible. Very few singers could ever do justice to the Aretha Franklin songbook… but Letitia George manages to capture the very spirit! ]]>

<![CDATA[Heart of Darkness]]> B2 stage 0.00000000 0.00000000 Joseph Conrad's classic, Heart of Darkness, retold for today.

Heart of Darkness Following the popular and critically acclaimed adaptation of Hemingway’s _A Farewell to Arms_, imitating the dog turn their attention to Joseph Conrad’s extraordinarily influential novel, *Heart of Darkness*. Written more than 100 years ago, amid the optimism at the turn of a new century, it’s a tale of lies and brutal greed and of the dark heart which beats within us all. Now re-sited in a timeless Europe, in a forsaken landscape lost to the destructive lust for power, it emerges as a tale absolutely for our time. This bold re-telling of Conrad’s classic is a visually rich, multi-layered work which fuses live performance with digital technology. The performers enter the stage, into uncharted territory. They are adrift with a story that they know they must tell. As they wait for the turn of the tide, the story unfolds like an animated Cinemascope graphic novel on the hanging projections screens above their heads. Their story is Conrad’s story, of the voyage into the perilous unknown. And, as we continue the journey, it becomes our story, exposing the dehumanisation that paved the way for the horrors of the 20th Century, and countless horrors yet to come. The heart of darkness must be found. The story is impossible to tell, but it must be told. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/tAv2CQvxrrk" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> Contains strong language and scenes of graphic violence.

<![CDATA[Swan Lake ]]> Belgrade Main stage 0.00000000 0.00000000 The Russian State Ballet and Opera House is back with Swan Lake featuring a live Orchestra with over 30 musicians.

Swan Lake The Russian State Ballet and Opera House is back for its annual UK tour with spellbinding, lavish, full-production touring ballet featuring a live Orchestra with over 30 musicians. One hundred and thirty-five years ago audiences heard *Swan Lake* by the great Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky for the very first time. From that moment on, the world of ballet would never be the same. *Swan Lake* is a tale of two young women, Odette and Odile, who resemble each other so strikingly that one can easily be mistaken for the other. It is the compelling legend of a tragic romance in which a princess, Odette, is turned into a swan by an evil curse. Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful young woman he is instantly captivated – will his love prove strong enough to break the evil spell that she is under? From the opulent splendour of the palace ballroom to the moonlit lake where majestic swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all. *Swan Lake *captures, like no other ballet, the full range of human emotions – from hope to despair, from terror to tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy. A wonderful evening out, the memories of which you will cherish long after the final curtain falls.
