Paul has been heard on Russell Kane’s Whistle-Stop Tour (BBC Radio 2) and is a regular guest on The Matt Forde Show (talkSPORT). He recently filmed the stand-up spot on Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC3) and is currently making a new show  for BBC3.

 

 

“He has charm, charisma and success written all over him”

Evening Standard

“Obviously born to be a comic”
The Scotsman

Paul is Joined by Suzy Benett and David Arnold.

Originally from Devon, Suzy is a dynamo of a comic, with a chatty stage presence. She has been delighting audiences with her saucy comedy since “accidentally” reaching the finals of Jimmy Carr’s Comedy Idol on her first gig, and being asked by Jimmy to support him on his “Gag Reflex” tour. Since then she has been storming gigs up and down the country, as well as hosting the Playtex Moonwalk in Hyde Park for the last two years entertaining 17,000 people wearing a novelty bra!

Winner – Funny Women Awards 2006

As seen on The One Show (BBC 1) and Jimmy Carr’s “Stand-Up” DVD

“She shows remarkable confidence on stage, cracking jokes about being single, blokes and pulling (or not pulling) them…” Time Out

“A naturally funny person – very funny indeed!” Jimmy Carr

David Arnold is a loveable Welshman who never fails to deliver a well rounded and polished performance that has his audience laughing throughout. Despite only doing his first gig in late 2012 he is fast developing a reputation as one of the South Wests’ brightest talents and one not to be missed. Regularly performing 20 minute sets as well as being an accomplished MC, he has performed everywhere from Jongleurs in Bristol to festivals such as Boardmasters & Volksfest.

THEATRE: The Marine Players present The Vicar of Dibley | Wednesday 21 to Saturday 24 March

All the characters of the cherished comedy return to the stage in this community play.

stained glass image copy

They are brought to life with a wonderful local cast, courtesy of the Marine Players. The chocolate obsessed Vicar, the dim but charming Alice Tinker, her love Hugo, and his disapproving father will all make an appearance in this hilarious adaptation of the TV classic.

The Marine Players is a talented local drama group based in Lyme Regis. Formerly the Lyme Regis Dramatic Society, the Marine Players were formed at the beginning of 2016 in order to move to a closer relationship with the Theatre, and attract a younger and more wide-ranging membership.

In exchange for free use of the theatre, profits from productions go towards the upkeep of the theatre. So far the players have contributed towards productions such as The Tempest of Lyme, Around the World in 80 Minutes, and Monmouth.

The original TV series was produced by Tiger Aspect, with script by Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer, and has been adapted by Ian Gower and Paul Carpenter.

NT Live: Julius Caesar | Wednesday 28 March

Nicholas Hytner directs a new take on the Shakespeare classic.

Julius Caesar

Ben Whishaw (The Danish Girl, Skyfall, Hamlet) and Michelle Fairley (Fortitude, Game of Thrones) play Brutus and Cassius, David Calder (The Lost City of Z, The Hatton Garden Job) plays Caesar and David Morrissey (The Missing, Hangmen, The Walking Dead) is Mark Antony. Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre, London.

Caesar returns in triumph to Rome and the people pour out of their homes to celebrate. Alarmed by the autocrat’s popularity, the educated élite conspire to bring him down. After his assassination, civil war erupts on the streets of the capital.

Nicholas Hytner’s production will thrust the audience into the street party that greets Caesar’s return, the congress that witnesses his murder, the rally that assembles for his funeral and the chaos that explodes in its wake.

CINEMA: Suffragette | Monday 2 April

Meryl Streep stars in this British drama, set in 1912 and 1913, that tells the story of the suffragette movement.

This is part of a series at the Marine that celebrates 100 years of votes for women. This is in advance of our talk ‘Diane Atkinson Rise Up Women! Lives of the Suffragettes’; Diane acted as a consultant on this film.

Suffragette

Suffragette charts early feminism, in particular the women who went underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with the state. They were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve very little.

Radicalised and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives.

Maud was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational.

The film’s characters are laundry workers, Maud Watts (Carey Mulligan) and Violet Miller (Ann Marie Duff), shopkeeper Edith Ellyn (Helena Bonham Carter), Mrs Haughton (Romola Garai) and WSPU founder Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep).  The film includes the suffragettes’ husbands Mr Watts ( Ben Wishaw), Mr Ellyn (Finbar Lynch) and Mr Haughton (Somuel West).
