    A Bolt From The Blue

    Written by David Tristram
    Directed by Kitty Cecil-Wright

    “An ordinary man. An extraordinary story.” An electrifying comedy by David Tristram.

    Edward Jones was just an ordinary man, doing ordinary things – until one day before his 40th birthday. What happened next was, quite literally, incredible. It defies belief. It defies logic. It defies the fundamental laws of science and nature. But it happened. And it came like a bolt from the blue.

    Join BacktoBack Theatre Company as they take you on Edward’s outrageously funny and truly incredible journey of self-discovery. David Tristram is one of the UK’s most popular modern playwrights. His comedy brings his trademark hilarity to every page but with a poignant and unusual story that tingles every nerve ending and jangles every human emotion, before reaching its extraordinary conclusion.

    On tour across Hampshire and Dorset; Tickets £14; Available online

    When We Are Married

    JB Priestley's farcical comedy When We Are Married plays at the Tivoli Theatre in February.

    Best known for his time-shifting thriller An Inspector Calls, Priestley also had a great gift for comedy. Set in 1908 in Yorkshire, where Priestley was born, When We Are Married ridicules the smugness and hypocrisy of the Edwardian middle class.

    Three well-to-do couples (the Helliwells, Parkers and Soppitts) married on the same day, at the same church, and by the same vicar, join to celebrate 25 years of blissful matrimony. The happy celebrations are brought to a sudden halt by a shocking revelation that these pillars of the community aren’t quite as respectably married as they thought they were!

    As the home truths fly like confetti and conjugal rites turn to farcical fights, an evening of sparkling comic mayhem erupts. With a photographer from the local paper due to arrive any second, a missing housekeeper and a doorbell that won’t stop ringing, can the three couples keep a lid on their embarrassing secret? Penned in 1938, this is a classic comedy that is a blessed union of laughs and surprises.

    When We Are Married is produced by Wimborne Drama Productions and runs at the Tivoli from 17 to 19 February – evening performances at 7.30pm (tickets £15) and there's a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm (tickets £13). Contact the Tivoli Theatre to book, Tel: 01202 885566 or available online (online booking fees apply).

    Shrek the Musical

    "Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek…" And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand... and his name is Shrek.

    Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Caroline or Change) and a side-splitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage, and proves there's more to the story than meets the ears.

    Come and join CPYT in the swamp, otherwise known as The Point, Eastleigh, SO53 4RF from 23 - 26 February 2022. Wednesday - Saturday evening at 7.30pm.  Friday and Saturday matinees at 2.30pm.

    Tickets are £14 - £17 and are available from www.thepointeastleigh.co.uk or 023 8065 2333.
