Once

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

A Broadway and West End hit musical that's a ravishing love story with a bittersweet difference, Once casts a spell over the audience just as its two lead characters cast a spell over each other.

Based on a cult 2006 Irish indie feature, originally shot on a micro-budget of just $160,000, it tells the uplifting yet yearning story of a part-time Dublin guitarist busker (who works by day in his dad's Hoover repair shop) who falls unexpectedly in love with a young Czech immigrant fellow musician. As we follow their relationship across five short days, big changes happen to both of them in little ways.

As conjured by a score of original Irish-inflected songs, written by the original stars of the film Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, the atmosphere is partly a busked concert and partly an aching romance that feels both spontaneous and freshly minted. The music, played live by the actors themselves, is alternately beautiful and rousing, and Enda Walsh's script quietly overwhelms with its sense of spirit, sincerity and solitude.

There's no other show quite like it. It's the most unusual, unique and affecting musical you're ever likely to see. It has a spontaneous free-form improvisatory vitality, yet it is also emotionally precise in the understated air of longing that anyone who has ever been in love will recognise instantly.

And audiences will fall head over heels in love with the show, too. Once is a genuine one-off which you'll need to see at least once -- but it's also unlikely to be your last time, as you'll want to see it again (and again).

Stephen Foster Presents Some Kinda Wonderful

Two of the UK's finest musicians - saxophonist Derek Nash and singer Noel McCalla – come together to celebrate the music of one of the greatest singer/songwriters of all time. An award-winning saxophonist, Derek Nash is perhaps best known as one of the featured saxophonists with the Jools Holland Rhythm and Blues Orcxhestra, leader of the enormously successful Sax Appeal and co-leader of the funk/groove outfit Protect The Beat. Noel McCalla first came to prominence in the seminal jazz/funk band Morrisey Mullen while also providing vocals on Genesis bassist Mike Rutherford’s highly acclaimed album Smallcreep’s Day. These two remarkable musicians, along with a stellar band that includes Neil Angilley (Vanessa Mae, Down To The Bone) on piano, Jonathan Noyce (Jethro Tull, Gary Moore) on bass and Nic France (David Gilmour, Bill Withers) on drums, will be bringing to life some of Stevie's many classics. This amalgamation of two truly wonderful musicians over the melting pot of one of the greatest songwriters of all time promises to be a unique and powerful experience and is not to be missed.

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

Directed by Michael Cabot
Set Design by Simon Scullion
Lighting Design by Andy Grange
Costume Design by Kate Lyons

Three married couples. Three kitchens. Three Christmas parties.

Sidney Hopcroft, a small-time tradesman, persuades wife Jane to throw a party hoping to find favour with a bank manager and local architect. As celebrations begin, class differences and naked ambition combine to hilarious effect as, one by one, the characters seek refuge in Jane’s kitchen.

Over the next two years, the Jacksons and Brewster-Wrights take turns to host festivities. But Sidney’s star has begun to rise and roles are increasingly reversed as the cracks in the other couples’ marriages begin to show.

Alan Ayckbourn’s comic masterpiece of social climbing in 1970s suburbia fuses a potent mix of farce and black comedy.

Three married couples. Three kitchens. Three Christmas parties.

Sidney Hopcroft, a small-time tradesman, persuades wife Jane to throw a party hoping to find favour with a bank manager and local architect. As celebrations begin, class differences and naked ambition combine to hilarious effect as, one by one, the characters seek refuge in Jane’s kitchen.

Over the next two years, the Jacksons and Brewster-Wrights take turns to host festivities. But Sidney’s star has begun to rise and roles are increasingly reversed as the cracks in the other couples’ marriages begin to show.

Alan Ayckbourn’s comic masterpiece of social climbing in 1970s suburbia fuses a potent mix of farce and black comedy.

Stephen Foster Presents Nine Below Zero

40 years since Nine Below Zero first offered a rhythm & blues alternative to the punk-pop of the mainstream, the south Londoners promise a supercharged show from start to finish. Founding members Dennis Greaves (guitar & vocals) and Mark Feltham (harmonica & vocals) will be joined by Dennis’ son Sonny Greaves on drums, Ben Willis on bass, Tom Monks on keyboards and the impressive female vocals of Charlie Austen. Formed in 1979 the band took their musical cues from the R&B greats of the 1960s, with a harder-edged sound more akin to contemporaries Dr Feelgood with a strong dose of The Yardbirds. The critically acclaimed expanded line-up is celebrating the release a new album entitled Avalanche. It’s one of the best CDs in the group’s long history and songs from it will take pride of place in what will surely be one of Ipswich’s best gigs of 2020.

A Little Space

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

A Gecko and Mind the Gap co-production

What does it mean to you to have a little space?
A little space where we can escape the world and be ourselves. Where we can say whatever we want, do whatever we feel and where no-one will ever bother us.

But it can be an unpredictable space too, where voices are funnelled away, fears leak through the floorboards, songs light up the room and you never know who’s listening behind the door.
A place where whispers come to life and one kind gesture could change everything.

Set in an apartment block, this devised show follows the lives of five people and explores what happens when they connect and disconnect from each other, whether through choice or through isolation. Drawing on the performers’ own experiences, a little space is a powerful piece of physical theatre, which uses movement, imagery, sound and lighting to portray the needs, desires and fears of the characters.

Mind the Gap has an internationally respected methodology and approach to its work and is considered a beacon for learning disability arts and artists; a little space is their first physical theatre production. Gecko’s style is both physically demanding and emotionally honest, using breath as an anchor to explore movement and emotion. The company strives to make their work open to interpretation and put their audience at the heart of the narrative – an ethos that has been reflected in the devising of a little space as we ask you, the audience, how it feels to be alone.


A little space has been commissioned by HOME, Manchester and The Place, London.

Following on from the international success of The Dreamer (2016), Gecko’s second Associate Show, A Little Space combines their unique blend of theatre, choreography and stunning imagery with incredible performers from Mind the Gap, one of Europe’s leading learning disability theatre companies.

Mind the Gap’s Charli Ward and Karen Bartholomew team up with Gecko Devising Performer Dan Watson, Associate Directors Rich Rusk and Helen Baggett, Designer Rhys Jarman, Lighting Designer Chris Swain and Composer Dave Price, who, between them have worked on all of Gecko’s hit shows since 2001, to create this intricately crafted performance.

About Gecko
Founded in 2001; Gecko is an award-winning and internationally-acclaimed physical theatre company, led by Artistic Director Amit Lahav. A Gecko show is visual, visceral, ambitious theatre crafted to inspire, move and entertain.
With an expanding ensemble of international performers and makers, Gecko works across diverse age groups, nationalities and forms, and creates work through collaboration, experimentation and play. The company tours nationally and internationally and continues to develop strong partnerships around the world. Beyond the stage, Gecko aspires to open the doors on their process through an extensive education programme and digital presence.

About Mind the Gap
Founded in 1988, Mind the Gap is one of Europe’s largest learning disability theatre companies that creates work for UK and international audiences.
Working in partnership with learning disabled artists, the company delivers a bold, cutting edge, world class artistic programme that impacts locally, nationally and internationally. Work that excites, surprises and challenges audiences in both traditional arts and theatre venues and in different spaces and places.
Its work ranges from award-winning touring theatre productions (CONTAINED, 2015-17; Mia, 2016 – 2018) to large scale outdoor spectacles (ZARA, 2019) and interactive workshops that aim to make change.

About the collaboration
Gecko and Mind the Gap’s paths first crossed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2017. Mind the Gap had a desire to create a new piece of physical theatre and were impressed by Gecko’s style and commitment to artistic quality. In November 2017 the companies came together to explore the scope for collaboration, through a weeklong intensive residency, with Mind the Gap’s Artists. The incredible work created during this short time frame proved the viability of the partnership and left both companies excited about a future collaboration.

Fast forward to October 2018, Gecko spent three weeks working with a range of students and Artists at Mind the Gap, with the aim of casting for a new piece of work, based around the idea of light and space. Five performers stood out and brought their individual talents and aesthetics to what eventually became 'a little space.'

Macbeth

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

By William Shakespeare

A Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch and Derby Theatre production

Shakespeare’s darkest and spookiest thriller

Battles. Murder. Ghosts. And desire…

Three witches on a heath have a disturbing prophecy for a victorious warrior. Macbeth will be king of Scotland. As this wicked seed is planted, daring Macbeth and his determined wife Lady Macbeth draw bloody draggers and set out on a fateful path.
But seizing the crown comes at a terrible price, as guilt grows, enemies draw close and the fight for survival hurtles towards a tragic conclusion…

This epic and intensely terrifying period version of Shakespeare’s most regal and timeless classic warns of the effects of political ambition on those who seek power for its own sake.

Directed by Douglas Rintoul, following his acclaimed productions of ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ and UK tour of ‘The Crucible’ – “serious theatre, seriously done” (The Stage) – and after this Summer’s highlight adaptation of ‘As You Like It’: a Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch partnership with the National Theatre.
