|What The Dickens?
Pegasus presents Gonzo Moose in
Thursday 2nd & Friday 3rd October – Special Preview Performances – Tickets £10/£8
Young Charles Dickens is a rookie reporter on The Morning Chronicle. Whilst investigating the foggy slums of Ye Olde London Towne, he accidently stumbles on a story that could make his reputation. Follow our hero on the adventure of a lifetime!
This inventive and gripping comedy features just three actors playing over 20 roles in 80 minutes of fast-paced fun and thrilling action. Brimming with unfeasibly quick costume changes, stupidly surreal characters and wonderfully daft jokes, What The Dickens? is the most absurd contribution to the Dickens legend you could hope to see.
Having delighted audiences over the past few years with their hit shows, Is That A Bolt In Your Neck?, Grimm And Grimmer and I’m An Aristocrat, Get Me Out Of Here!, Gonzo Moose are back with something to entertain the whole family.

|The Memory of Water
After spending their lives avoiding each other, three sisters are forced to meet up in the family home on the eve of their mother's funeral.
Combining a dangerous cocktail of whisky, weed and various health supplements, the memories of the past distort, and the three begin to realise that rather than throwing off their mother's influence, they may be, in fact, diluted versions of the very woman they thought they'd escaped.
|Robin Ince is (In and) Out of his Mind
Lakin McCarthy Entertainment Presents
Robin Ince - Sony Gold Award winning comedian and science enthusiast (Infinite Monkey Cage with Prof Brian Cox ,Radio 4) - presents another in his line of unhinged stand up comic lectures.
After dabbling in Darwin and Feynman, and cleaning out Schrodinger's Cat, Robin now delves into his mind and possibly your mind too.
From Freud and Jung to Laing and Milgram, from rats after rewards to insanity cured by ink spots, Robin looks at the last 100 years of psychiatry, psychology and skewiff brain dabblings. Just how hard is it being a self-conscious being on planet earth.
Come along, he may cure you.
“When someone writes a history of modern comedy, they should make room for Robin Ince” The Guardian“thoughtful, provocative and very funny” The Times
