About The Performance
It the roaring 20s. Chicago is awash with jazz and liquor. Murder is front page news and everyone wants a piece of it. Join us for this a dazzling, satirical look at fame, justice, and the media machine. Based on real-life murders and trials, Chicago follows Roxie Hart, a wannabe vaudevillian star who murders her lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap... until he realises he's been duped and turns on Roxie. Sent to death row, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and nightclub performer Velma Kelly. They vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the 'American Dream': fame, fortune and acquittal.

Jim lives in the Admiral Benbow Inn with Grandma, but she’s desperate for a real adventure. One night, Billy Bones comes to stay, leading a gang of very silly pirates, with a big secret, to Jim’s door. Before she knows it Jim is sailing to Treasure Island, befriending one legged cooks, dodging mutinies and searching for buried treasure.
This is Treasure Island as you’ve never seen it before, in celebration of Lamphouse Theatre’s 10th anniversary. With a slew of silly-singalong-sea-shanties, plenty of preposterous pirates, and dozens of doubloons, you won’t want to miss Treasure Island this Christmas.

MENACHAP, CALIFORNIA. An incomprehensible event: every person in the audience of a high school play falls unconscious--every person but one. Using interviews with witnesses, loved ones, first responders, and the investigators pursuing the case, a theatre ensemble brings the story of the strange event to life, documentary-style. But as the strands weave together into an increasingly dangerous web, it becomes clear that this phenomenon might not be entirely in the past. Unnerving, exhilarating, and wildly inventive, you've never walked into anything quite like Trap.
Venue: The Stahl Theatre
Date: January 24th & 25th
Running Time 90 minutes

Crack out the bunting! It’s Luke Wright’s Silver Jubilee!!
Written & performed by Luke Wright
Supported by Norwich Arts Centre and Arts Council, England
Over twenty-five years, Luke Wright has built up a reputation for being one of Britain’s most popular live poets. He has won an unprecedented four Saboteur Awards (national awards for spoken word), a Stage Award, and a Fringe First. He’s sold out shows across the world and regularly tours with John Cooper Clarke and The Libertines.
This show debuted to a packed arena at Latitude Festival before a sell out run at the Edinburgh Fringe where it was the toast of the critics.
“This is the best thing that poet Luke Wright has done, which is saying something.” ★★★★★ The Telegraph
This year, thwarted in his attempts to hold a street party by the philistines on the council and unable to shift the over-ordered commemorative plates, Wright does what a poet does best, and takes a deep dive into himself. What follows is his most confessional show to date.
“Breathtaking … with a sharpness and wisdom that lifts the soul, and soothes the battered heart.” ★★★★ The Scotsman
Wright was adopted as a baby and grew up believing that his adoption “wasn’t a big thing.” But one night he idly stumbled across his birth mother on Facebook. This window to a world that might have been his has thrown up deep questions about privilege, familial love, and destiny.
“Luke is on fire! A poetic interrogation of himself, who he is and where he is from that leaves you tenderised and bruised and with a little something in your eye.” Mark Thomas
This show is an excavation of lives lived and not lived. Wright navigates his audience through a warm and honest hour of poems and stand-up with the directness and pathos that has made him one of the most popular live poets in England. With some wild experiments in form, a nervous kitten called Sir John Betjeman and a healthy smattering of drum n bass, Wright manages to navigate some heart-wrenching material and keep the laughs coming.
“A winning combination of honesty, humour, ire and wonder. He is at the peak of his powers.” ★★★★★ The Stage
“The best exploration of love, family and belonging I have ever had the pleasure of seeing.” ★★★★★ The Student
“On the basis of the stellar quality of this show – here’s to another twenty-five.” ★★★★★ The Wee Review
“Britain’s finest performance poet.” ★★★★★ Life As Theatre
“Wright is entrenched in the sound and feel of words, a love he leans into with a mix of boisterous energy, and gentle pathos” ★★★★ The QR
“Luke Wright is a gifted performer, a talented poet and a definite favourite of ours. Treat yourself to an hour in his company.” ★★★★ Darkchat
The Stage “best 15 shows of the fringe”
The Telegraph “best 13 shows of the fringe”
The Crush Bar “top ten shows of the fringe”
