  "Peter Pan " Saturday 14th February 7.30 pm
Duck Egg Theare brings to the stage a 21st century adaptation of Peter Pan with words by Haley Cox and music by Phil Collingwood .
A-Level student and Tesco cashier Wendy Darling takes the audience towards the second star to the left and straight on until morning into the classic tale..
This time, however, the story includes a misunderstood Captain Hook, a hot guitarist Peter Pan, a stroppy Tinker Bell and and a sprinkle of fairy dust, set to a rock and pop soundtrack.
Exploring small town mentality, youth aspiration and the challenges of following your dreams, this modern,retelling of Peter Pan is aimed at families and anyone over seven years of age.
£9.50/£5.00 Conc.
  Ian Sherwood Sunday 22nd February 7.30 pm
Ian Sherwood is a singer/songwriter, instrumentalist and storyteller. His music dances the line between folk and pop.
He was named Contemporary Singer of the Year by the 2013 Canadian Folk Music Awards, Best Male Artist of the Year by the 2012 International Acoustic Music Awards and was the 2008 and 2010 Music Nova Scotia Musician Of The Year.
Starting his music career as an in-demand saxophone player in Toronto, Sherwood soon began looking for an outlet for his poetic side. His unique musicianship combined with his tales of heart-break, victory and adventure quickly gained recognition as a solid performer, lyricist and player.
Described as a natural performer who entertains as much with his wit and stories as with his music, his guitar work is impressive and his songs have catchy hook lines.
£9.50/£3.00 Older Children
  "Brief Lives" Saturday 28th February 8.00 pm
This play [an Other Lives Production] portrays the reminiscences of John Aubrey,an antiquary and writer, (1626 - 1697).
Taking place on a cold winter morning in 1697 in his lodgings, Old John Aubrey launches into wicked tales of his contemporaries – Oliver Cromwell, Charles II, Nell Gwyn – and stories remembered from his childhood told by folk who knew the likes of Queen Elizabeth, Sir Walter Raleigh and Shakespeare, .
Old John Aubrey takes his audience by the hand and, with a twinkle in his eye, leads you through a day late in his life, launching into wicked tales. By turns he is a stand-up comic, a philosopher, a lodger in a garret room suffering crying babies and other noisy co-tenants. Once he starts speaking to you he is like the Ancient Mariner - you cannot choose but hear.
A one-man show, Brief Lives was famously staged in 1969 starring Roy Dotrice, who went on to play Aubrey for more than 1,700 performances which still warrants a mention in the Guinness Book of Records as the longest-running one-man show.
"Everything is here - wit, farce, tragedy, pathos - often bawdy, frequently uproariously funny. A truly delightful entertainment." The Guardian
