The Complete History of Comedy (Abridged)


Written and Directed by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor.

They’ve skewered history, the Bible and the world’s most celebrated playwright, now the Reduced Shakespeare Company tackles the subject it was born to reduce. From the high-brow to the low, The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) covers comedy through the ages, from Aristophanes and Shakespeare and Moliere (Is Moliere funny? Why not?) to Vaudeville and Charlie Chaplin to The Daily Show and Nick Clegg (Is Nick Clegg funny? Why not?)

Tickets to The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) are far more affordable than tickets to an amusement park, but you’ll come away with the same feeling of nausea and motion sickness. From cavemen telling “Rock Rock” jokes to Chris Rock and everything in-between, the bad boys of abridgment leave no joke untold as they deconstruct the entire history of comedy in 90 rollicking minutes.

“My cheeks still hurt from laughing so much. Way too funny.” Napa Valley Register

“A wild, wild ride! It’s funny. Really, really funny... And most of all, it’s really, really smart.” Cincinnati Enquirer

In October 2007 Ray Gravell, a man who for many embodied what it is to be Welsh, passed away after succumbing to complications resulting from contracting diabetes. He was 56 years old.
Known to millions for his legendary exploits on the rugby field, ‘Grav’was and is so much more than that. An actor, a cultural icon, a father, a husband, a man with a life packed full of stories that deserve to be heard once more.
The Torch Theatre Company presents Gareth Bale as ‘Grav’ in a play written by Owen Thomas that celebrates the man and the legend. With the blessing of Mari, Ray’s widow, and contributions from his Welsh and British Lions team mates, this one man show will explore the life of a man who was as fascinating away from the rugby field as he was on it.
Directed by the Torch Theatre’s Artistic Director Peter Doran, ‘Grav’will remind the world once more of a unique life well lived and of a man who did so much more than eat soft centres.

This production is directed by Peter Doran, written by Owen Thomas and performed by Gareth Bale.

The Chimes


The Chimes is the second in Dickens's series of Christmas books, with as powerful a punch now as it had at the time. In the run-up to the festive season, local porter, Trotty Veck falls asleep in the doorway of a church. Woken by the bells, and magically dragged up the tower, he has just one chance to change this world... but will he listen to the bells?
