Hancock and Co.

performed by James Hurn: one man, many voices

Following James Hurn’s sell-out visit to The Mission Theatre in November 2016, he is back by popular demand with a stunning one-man, many voices, show, celebrating over 60 years of Hancock’s Half Hour.

On this, his second visit, James – a talented actor and impressionist – will be performing a brand-new programme including one classic episode of Hancock’s Half Hour, and two episodes he has written himself in the same style as Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, with James voicing the entire cast. James is a master at recreating the accents and personas of such iconic 20th century British favourites as Tony Hancock, Sidney James, Hattie Jacques, Bill Kerr and Kenneth Williams.

This new show is performed in the style of a radio performance in front of a live audience, bringing to life the classic days of radio comedy. Don’t miss it!

Tickets £14 (£12 concs) Bath Box Office 01225 463362

Agatha Crusty and The Village Hall Murders

by David Webb

Agatha Crusty (pronounced Croosty) is a crime novelist. She’s also pretty adept at solving crimes. When her sister-in-law, Alice, invites her to spend a few days with her in the Village of Chortelby, it’s not long before she gets caught up in a series of murders which seem directed at members of the All Saints Village Hall committee.

From Toby, the Vicar, and Eleanor, the chair of the committee, to Harry Knott the caretaker and identical twins Olivia and Oliver Truscott-Pratt, there are plenty of suspects. With an investigating officer as incompetent as D.I. Twigg, there are plenty of laughs as the murders begin to pile up.

While packed full of wit and very funny scenes, this play is also a genuine murder mystery with an ingenious plot which will tax the little grey cells of the audience at the same time!

Tickets: £10 (£8 children)

TopButton Theatre Company presents

Wink

by Phoebe Eclair-Powell

"I log on for seven hours. And it’s like my whole room opens up, space, time and all the continuums… I am wired, awake, my mind full, my eyes fuller. I can’t even blink any more but I can’t stop looking, staring into this space where everyone else is.”

What makes you a man? No one seems to have any idea. We don’t really tend to talk about it. The only way to find out is to throw yourself into the mind of one…

Phoebe Eclair-Powell’s Wink is a thrilling modern drama which follows a search for identity in an age of social media, sexting and deleted web searches; an age when untreated mental illness is killing more young men than war. Wink examines two lives veering dangerously close to collision, asking us what separates the man from the boy?

TopButton brings you thought-provoking theatre with edge. The company has teamed up with Dyslexia Action and Mind Mental Health and both charities support the project and will be offering support and guidance.

Tickets £10 (£8 concs) Bath Box Office 01225 463362
