Death on the Third Floor

Venue: Compass Studio

Are those not dark shadows lurking inside the house I once called home? “From attempting mass murder against my father’s family in the village of Small Soppo, Buea, in Cameroon, to becoming a victim of human trafficking; from living and barely surviving the streets of Moscow, to strip dancing, and buying and selling fake dollars…” A riveting and deeply moving play based on true events shaped from the life of the writer Eric Ngalle Charles, recipient of a Creative Wales Award. Directed by Bafta winner Greg Lewis.

Jimmy Carr

Terribly Funny

Venue: Baillie Gifford Stage
Read more

Jimmy’s brand new show contains jokes about all kinds of terrible things.

Terrible things that might have affected you or people you know and love.
But they’re just jokes – they are not the terrible things.
Having political correctness at a comedy show is like having health and safety at a rodeo.

Now you’ve been warned, buy a ticket.

The hilarious stand-up show from the Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee. Loving your children, spouse and ageing parents (in that order, please don’t tell my mother) is very hard work, very intense and a lot of the time it sucks. But who wants to live without love? The highly anticipated debut from the host of BBC R4’s Comedy of the Week podcast. As seen on QI (BBC2), Have I Got News for You (BBC1) and Alan Davies As Yet Untitled (Dave), and heard on The Guilty Feminist podcast.
