Naomi Petersen: I Am Telling You I’m Not Going

Hilariously inventive, warm-hearted character comedy. As seen on E4's Drifters, and in smash-hit improv supergroup The Free Association.
'Carrying the show is the extraordinary Naomi Petersen' (Independent).

Post-Apocalyptic Book Club

Tuesday 26th July, 7pm


'All animals are equal - but some are more equal than others'

When the downtrodden animals of Manor Farm overthrow their master Mr Jones and take over the farm themselves, they imagine it is the beginning of a life of freedom and equality. But gradually a cunning, ruthless élite among them, masterminded by the pigs Napoleon and Snowball, starts to take control. Soon the other animals discover that they are not all as equal as they thought, and find themselves hopelessly ensnared as one form of tyranny is replaced with another.

'It is the history of a revolution that went wrong - and of the excellent excuses that were forthcoming at every step for the perversion of the original doctrine,' wrote Orwell for the first edition of Animal Farm in 1945. Orwell wrote the novel at the end of 1943, but it almost remained unpublished; its savage attack on Stalin, at that time Britain's ally, led to the book being refused by publisher after publisher. Orwell's simple, tragic fable has since become a world-famous classic.

Major Bombshell

Monday 8th August, 9pm


 If you think this whole Trump thing looks bad from this side of the pond, wait ’til you hear what our Camilla’s been through. On the run from the man himself (don’t ask), this forthright LA socialite is determined to get hitched in the UK and never return. Played by Sammy Courtright, Camilla is proudly bringing her popular show BOMBSHELL to London, in which she sings, shimmies, quips and whips out just about anything to impress.
Camilla reports on her disastrous dates, London grumbles, misplaced confidence and American shame. And when she’s feeling particularly strong about a topic, you may even be treated to a song-and-dance routine. “Can U Not” is her number about boys behaving badly on dates – and her favourite is the rousing Millenial anthem, “There’s One In Every Family (It Might As Well Be You!)”
Written by Imogen Dall and directed by David Williams, BOMBSHELL is the comedy cabaret that will send you home thinking: “I’m actually really doing great at life.”
