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.

Absurd Person Singular

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.

‘A master of comic ingenuity.’ The Guardian
