Horse - The Same Sky 30th Anniversary

Horse: The Same Sky 30Th Anniversary Show

A glorious celebration of the 30 year anniversary of the classic album ‘The Same Sky'.

In March 1989, the first single, “You could be forgiven”, was released and it was so different from anything else at the time - thrilling first plays on Radio 1 - the track absolutely setting the bar - an incredibly unique Scottish voice and brilliant band. The first major UK tour followed and in 1990, tours across Europe, including opening for artists such as Tina Turner and BB King.

There are many great songs on this album but arguably the ultimate song from this album and possibly any of her albums, is “Careful”, a beautiful and timeless song.

This is a very special night which will inevitably conjure up treasured times from over the years for the entire audience. It's a rare evening, celebrating and playing the album in its entirety - the full band show - a set choc-full of the classic songs.

Drop dead gorgeous, sassy and smart, Ruby Wax brings her new one-woman show to the stage.

Based on her number one best seller, “A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled.” She’s been honoured with the title of poster girl for mental illness; once crazy now less so, she gives a tour of the mind – how to use it, not lose it.

Ruby Wax if you don’t know is a much loved, U.S. born comedy-actor-writer of incredibly successful books and TV shows including script editor of “Absolutely Fabulous” and is a mental health campaigner.

This event is your passport to saner living and is a follow up to her previous sell out show and book, “Sane New World.”

By the way, she graduated from Oxford with a Masters in Mindfulness–based Cognitive Therapy (at a late stage) three years ago so she should know her stuff.

Ruby Wax: How To Be Human

Ruby Wax: How To Be Human

Ruby Wax: ‘How To Be Human' Based on her bestselling book, Ruby's new show How To Be Human answers every question you've ever had about evolution, thoughts, emotions, the body, addictions, relationships, sex, kids, the future and compassion.

We can't stop the future from arriving, no matter what drugs we're on. But even if nearly every part of us becomes robotic, mechanical fingers crossed we'll still have our minds. Hopefully we'll use them for things like compassion, instead of just chasing what's ‘better' like a hamster on a wheel. If we can do that, we're on the yellow brick road to happiness.

This show is the follow up to Ruby's sell out shows ‘Sane New World' and ‘Frazzled' and incorporates what she discovered whilst writing her latest book with monk Gelong Thubten and neuroscientist Ash Ranpura. Outrageously witty and smart, blending brilliant comedy and insightful life lessons, ‘How To Be Human' is the show you need to help you upgrade your mind as much as you've upgraded your iPhone.

Please note that Gelong Thubten and Ash Ranpura will not be appearing at this show.

DYAD PRODUCTIONS

From the award-winning creators of Austen's Women, I, Elizabeth, Orlando, Christmas Gothic, Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, and The Time Machine.

August 5th, 1962: Monroe as we've never seen her before: alone in her bedroom, in dressing gown and underwear; no glitz, no glamour, no masks. Overdosed on pills, the woman behind the icon unravels her remarkable life, taking us back through the memories of her closest relationships. Repeatedly stalked by a mysterious caller, the Hollywood icon tells all (Joe DiMaggio, Clark Gable, Arthur Miller, her mother – it's all here), revealing a biting intelligence and an imperfect body, leading us in real time to the very moment of her death.

Written and Directed by Elton Townend Jones (Dalloway, Orlando, Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, The Time Machine). Performed by Lizzie Wort (RSC's The Magician's Daughter, Animal Farm). Winner of the Three Weeks Editors Award.

  • ‘A simply stunning production' (Edinburgh Reporter)

  • 'Superlative' (Remotegoat)
