The news that a government inspector is due to arrive in a small town sends its bureaucrats into a panicked frenzy. A simple case of mistaken identity exposes the hypocrisy and corruption at the heart of the town in this biting moral satire.
In a vain attempt at bourgeois credibility, Manchester's sharp-dressed, sharp-delivering punk poet Lenny, changed his name to John Cooper Clarke and embarked on a ?polysyllabic excursion though Thrillsville'! Clad in the slum chic of the hipster, he issued the slang anthems of the zip age in the desperate esperanto of bop. Expect a mix of hilarious anecdotes of life in a Northern town interspersed with machine-gun fast delivery of some of his best poems. If you think poetry is dull and boring, or posh and erudite - you haven't seen JCC!

Murder On Cue is a murder mystery set in Maple Lodge, a retirement home for actors, where gossip and old rivalries sustain the residents as much as the dry sherry and shepherd's pie. A fall of snow means the home is cut off from the outside world. No-one can leave. There are many rivalries between, and old grudges held by, the residents, brought to the fore by a spate of poison pen letters. It would appear that everyone has cause to dislike one of the residents, but who would go as far as murder to exact their revenge?

Shaw's dramatisation of a Cockney flower girl's metamorphosis into a lady is not only a delightful fantasy but also has much to say about social class, money, spiritual freedom and womens' independence. Its combination of ideas and social comment, together with its rich comic characterization, make it one of the most enduring and entertaining of English comedies. Henry Higgins, Professor of Linguistics and confirmed bachelor, wagers that within six months he will transform flower seller, Eliza Doolittle, into a lady who can take her place in high society. Shaw's masterpiece is both brilliantly funny and a devastating critique of the English class system. This play formed the basis of "My Fair Lady".

Think saxophones, and most of us will immediately start thinking of jazz,. No bad thing, maybe, as there are few instruments as evocative as the saxophone, and few sounds as effortlessly expressive as jazz, but YolanDa Brown is someone who has made the instrument truly her own, a miraculously gifted saxophonist fluent in a wide range of genres. She can sound at once emotionally raw and incontestably infectious, and she can make it sound like no one else on earth.
