Brewhouse Diary –April 2014
Wednesday 2nd April
The Bible: The Complete Word of God: Abridged
The Good Book Just Got Better! It’s apocalypse now as the three cultural guerrillas of The Reduced Shakespeare Company set their reductive sights on the good book with The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged). Yes, it’s an affectionate, irreverent roller coaster ride from fig leaves to final judgment as the bad boys of abridgement tackle the great theological questions: Did Adam and Eve have navels? Did Moses really look like Charlton Heston? And why isn’t the word “phonetic” spelt the way it sounds? Whether you are Catholic or Protestant, Muslim or Jew, Atheist or Jedi, you will be tickled by the RSC’s romp through old time religion.

The Hound of the Baskervilles
“Fast-paced, thoroughly entertaining.” An original adaptation of Conan-Doyle’s classic by professional, young performers. The Alleyne’s Fringe theatre group are one to look out for.”- Staffordshire Newspapers
Holmes’ most spine chilling mystery set in the desolate landscape of Dartmoor. Sir Henry is heir to the vast Baskerville fortune, a legacy that comes with a family curse of death at the fangs of a horror that prowls the moor. Only Holmes can stop the beast. While mysterious lights signal Baskerville Hall, and the hound terrifies the countryside, the sleuthing begins and suspicion falls on sinister servants, butterfly collectors, ladies in distress and escaped convicts. Who wrote the letter that summoned Sir Charles to his death? Is Sir Henry’s Relationship with the lovely Kathy doomed? Is the supernatural at work?
