  "Man and Superman" NT LIVE [ENCORE] Thursday 28th May 7.00 pm
Photo: Alastair Muir
 Ralph Fiennes stars as John Tanner in Bernard Shaw’s super-sized drama of ideas (“A comedy and a philosophy”), Man and Superman.
Mr. Whitefield has recently died, and his will indicates that his daughter Ann should be left in the care of two men, Roebuck Ramsden and Jack Tanner. Ramsden, a venerable old man, distrusts Jack Tanner, an eloquent man with revolutionary ideas.
In spite of what Ramsden says, Ann accepts Tanner as a guardian (in spite of the fact that Tanner doesn't want the position at all), and she defies Tanner's revolutionary beliefs with her own beliefs.
Tanner's dedication to anarchy is unable to disarm Ann's charm, and she ultimately persuades him to marry her, choosing him over her more persistent suitor, a young man named Octavius Robinson.
  "April in Paris" Saturday 30th May 7.30 pm
Filled with raucous indelicate dialogue, April in Paris is a delicately wrought comedy about Al and Bet,a married couple who live a monochrome life.
Left half-broke by Al's continuing unemployment, the couple bicker about everything from having no hot water, to Al's uninspired black-and-white paintings, to Bet's obsession with magazine competitions.
When Bet finally wins one – the prize being a trip for two to Paris – there is the glimmer of romantic hope for a complete reversal of fortunes.Instead, it is in the slow gains, the addition of colour and the learning to be nice to one another again that gives this play its surprising, uplifting dénouement.
Written by John Godber, April in Paris was first performed by Hull Truck theatre Company in 1992, with the author and his wife playing Al and Bet respectively.

  "Vin Garbutt in Concert" Saturday 27th June 7.30 pm
Vin’s career has spanned over 40 years of constant world wide touring which must make him some kind of elder statesman of folk. His songs were inspired by the folk tradition at the beginning of his career, they still are but have transformed into gritty social comment and life observations. He is renowned for his hilarious intros but for him his song lyrics are the crux of his performance.
“It’s a true gift to be able to make us laugh and squirm at the same time, but Vin does both. He should be prescribed on the National Health.” English Folk Dance & Song Society.
“Every budding singer-songwriter please take note: attending a Vin Garbutt concert is now mandatory before your first public performance. Garbutt is the undisputed master of communicating with an audience.” Penguin Eggs magazine. Canada
