Baskery

The three sisters can't recall when or why they started playing, the music’s always just been there. In their late teens, the sisters joined forces with their dad, who for decades was a one man band playing old blues and country tunes for a living. This foundation of classic "roots music and Americana" settled in their hearts, but also awoke the urge of breaking the rules of traditional music. Baskery is a band built on what three people can do together and it's all about turning the music on its head, blending the straightforwardness of punk with the subtlety of singer/ songwriting. The first album, "Fall Among Thieves" (2008) was recorded in Stockholm, co-produced by Lasse Mårtén (Pink, 'Peter, Bjorn and John', Kelly Clarkson, Lykke Li, Primal Scream ). "New Friends" (2011) the follow up, the band referred to it as the "gypsy album" since it was mainly tracked on the road in various hotel rooms and band apartments, then mixed in Berlin by Blackpete (Depeche Mode, Joe Jackson, Peter Fox). As a contrast to the first two albums which took several months to make, the third one "Little Wild Life" (2013) was recorded during ten days in an old dance studio converted to a studio in former east Berlin, co-produced by Matt Wignall (Cold War Kids, J. Roddy Walston, Wargirl). All three albums received great acclaim by the press and are released in numerous countries. The releases in combination with relentless touring have given the band a reputation as one of the music scene's most noticeable live acts.

Cracking - Documental Theatre

Sun 8 - Mon 9 Dec | 7pm | £10 (£8)
Box office notes: Workshop

A new play by Cally Hayes about love, loss and parenthood. Cracking takes an intimate look from a father’s perspective about what happens when you survive the worst but now risk losing everything. Three days into motherhood, Rachel didn’t recognise herself. There was nothing Sam wouldn’t do to keep his family together.

Practical and hands on, he stuck with it, held his tongue and eventually Rachel got better. So why are they now sitting on a therapist’s couch tumbling back into the past and Sam in real danger of losing his footing?

Inspired by interviews with couples who’ve recovered from postnatal illness, Documental combines refreshingly honest new writing with testimony and vibrant physicality.

Cracking tells a love story that is both poetic and brutally frank.

Laurence Clark

‘An Irresponsible Father’s Guide to Parenting’ by Laurence Clark Comedian Laurence Clark starred in BBC1’s documentary 'We Won’t Drop the Baby', following his family’s journey as they welcomed their second child, with the show recently being uploaded to YouTube. The response it received worldwide was at times inspirational and uplifting – at others, derogatory and incredibly personal. Laurence’s show explores these reactions, and questions his role as a father with cerebral palsy - with the help of his two young sons, who undoubtedly steal the limelight with their charming and innocent view of their parents. “Wickedly funny” – ★★★★★ Herald “Intelligent and incredibly mischievous” – ★★★★ Metro “Close to the bone and very funny” – ★★★★ Scotsman "his theme packs a huge emotional punch.. By that extravagant finale you’ll be clapping, singing, laughing, cheering.. maybe even bawling like a baby" Fest Mag “The laughs come regularly in a continual flow of chuckles and guffaws.. in a tightly-scripted Fringe affair that balances light-hearted banter with real issues” The List “an excellent hour, jam-packed with laughs and a delight to watch” ★★★★★One 4 Review “Clark’s humour is warm & mischievous & although, at times, close to the bone.. it’s delivered in a way that never offends.. Clark is a fighter & a witty pragmatist to boot.. made me laugh and smile from beginning to end” ★★★★Broadway Baby “a funny hour of family friendly comedy.. a refreshing tonic to perk you up” ★★★★★Festival Review Growing up Laurence never saw dads with cerebral palsy; which made him think he’d never be a parent himself. Besides, the only thing he’d ever managed to look after was a cactus, and even that died from dehydration. But then his future wife says he’d better be prepared for the fact she wants babies… which is a pretty strong opening line. Putting the audience in the driver seat, An Irresponsible Father’s Guide to Parenting gives a comic, brutally honest and charming account of what it’s really like to be a disabled parent. It both challenges and engages and has the potential to reach new audiences by exploring the commonality and differences in the experiences of disabled and non-disabled fathers. If Laurence is an irresponsible father then it is probably more to do with balancing his wife’s crutches on his son’s baby walker to make him look like a Dalek! A hilarious, moving and interactive piece that asks some tough questions about society and the perceptions that we have on those who do not follow societal norms. “An Irresponsible Father’s Guide to Parenting was the highlight of my 2018 Edinburgh Fringe experience. Laurence has the brilliant ability of balancing difficult issues and comedy banter while still maintaining the gravity behind these topics” Mairead Folan, Galway Theatre Festival

Reclaim The Frame: Brittany Runs A Marathon

Dir. Paul Downs Colaizzo 2019 | 103 mins | USA

Short copy:

As entertaining as it is inspirational, this is the tale of how a woman who was the life of the party finds real friends – and a real life – by taking control of her herself, one city block at a time.

Web copy:

Brittany Forgler is a funny, likeable, 27-year-old hot mess of a New Yorker whose trashy nightclub adventures and early-morning walks of shame make her late for work every day. But when she stops by a Yelp-recommended doctor’s office in an attempt to score Adderall, Brittany gets handed a series of diagnoses instead—elevated heart rate, high blood pressure … the list goes on. Suddenly forced to get a grip, Brittany laces up her Converse sneakers and runs one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. Soon she runs a mile. Brittany finally has direction—but is she on the right path?

Award-winning playwright Paul Downs Colaizzo makes his directorial debut with this bright, brisk comedy, with Jillian Bell leading an irresistible cast that infuses Brittany’s story with heart and soul. Brittany Runs A Marathon is a film as entertaining as it is inspirational, the tale of how a woman known for being the life of the party finds real friends—and a real life—by taking control of her herself, one city block at a time.
