Mistero Buffo

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

A few more details ...

Rhum and Clay bring to the stage Dario Fo's seminal master piece, Mistero Buffo – a daring and explosive rallying cry for the disenfranchised.

A travelling storyteller, another employee of the gig economy, rushes from his last delivery of the day to recount ancient tales of Jesus and his life... however these versions aren't like any you've heard before. Darkly comic, sometimes tragic and always subversive, Mistero Buffo takes aim at those who manipulate truth and belief for power and control.

Directed by Nicholas Pitt and starring Julian Spooner this award-winning update of a classic was one of the big hits of the 2018 Edinburgh festival.

Winner of The Stage Edinburgh Award 2018
One of The Guardian’s and The Stage's “Best Shows at the Edinburgh Festival 2018”

The FlyBoys - A postmodern Swing Sensation!

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

A few more details ...

Imagine a night where Pharrell Williams croons with Judy Garland, Ricky Martin scats with Cab Calloway, and Maroon 5 groove with Ella Fitzgerald - that night is here! In a fusion of unforgettable showmanship, these four masters of mashup, with their effortless vocals and sublime harmonies, will whisk you back to the golden age of big bands but with an incredibly unique twist!
