Out of the Cage- High Tor Players, 9 November

Out of the Cage by Alex McSweeneyHigh Tor Players Presents…

Out of the Cage

by Alex McSweeney

Inspired by the munition women of Silvertown, London during the First World War, Out Of The Cage tells the story of women’s courage, dignity and hope, fired in the crucible of war. 

Early spring 1916, before the slaughter of the Somme, munitionettes all over London met in secret to decide the fate of thousands of fellow co-workers. Their choice was simple: stand up to the belligerent attitude of male workers and an intractable government or forever be seen as second-class citizens of the Empire.

Were they dangerous and disruptive elements undermining their country at a time of war, or inspiring visionaries of a better world prepared to fight for a fairer future?

Join stand up comedian, poet, improviser, and TV stalwart Phill Jupitus for tales, laughs and diversions. Watch in delight and/or horror as this experienced funny man drags laughs out of the chaos of his own life and the uncertain world that surrounds it.

Adult themes and situations, but delivered childishly.

Phill became a familiar face when he started as team captain on BBC Two’s pop quiz Never Mind The Buzzcocks in 1996, which went on to run for nineteen years. Aside from Never Mind the Buzzcocks and live stand up shows all over the UK, he also appears as a regular guest on QI and Alan Davies As yet Untitled, and in 2012 returned to television stand-up for the first time since 2000 with an appearance on Live at the Apollo.

On BBC Radio 4, Phill is a regular panellist of the award winning I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue and The Unbelievable Truth, and was resident curator on The Museum of Curiosity. In addition, he has presented numerous radio documentaries including, Phill Jupitus’ Comic Strips, Calvin and Hobbes and The Man Who Bought Hendrix’s Stage.

Phill’s theatre work includes playing Bottom in the Bath Theatre Royal production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, appearing alongside Jason Manford in the UK touring production of The Producers as Franz Liebkind, the West End production of Urinetown in the role of Caldwell B. Cladwell at the Apollo Theatre, and his West End singing debut in 2009 when he played Edna Turnblad in the hit musical Hairspray at The Shaftesbury Theatre.

Gigspanner: 13 April

GigspannerPeter Knight’s Gigspanner

10th Anniversary Tour

In the wake of his departure from Steeleye Span, multi award winning fiddle player Peter Knight has turned his full attention to his trio Gigspanner, and in the process established their reputation as one of the most genuinely ground-breaking forces on the British folk scene, inspiring Maverick magazine to write “Gigspanner are pushing at the boundaries, expanding the possibilities and in the process making some of the most beautiful music the genre has to offer”

Described by Folk Radio UK as one of the “most quietly brilliant sets of musicians in the folk world and beyond”, they take self-penned material along with music rooted in the British Isles and with the flick of a bow, a finely chosen chord or slip of a beat, produce richly atmospheric arrangements “with notes seemingly plucked from the stars and rhythms from the equator”

The captivating nature of their set stems not only from their creative ability and vision, but the eclectic nature of the material chosen. There are eddies and undercurrents drawn from a whole palette of influences which engage and enthral audiences to the closing notes.

Their November 2017 release, ‘The Wife of Urban Law’ has already received several ‘Best Of’ end of year accolades, including making it on to Mojo Magazine‘s ‘The 10 Best Folk Albums of 2017’ list, and Peter has received Fatea’s Award for Instrumentalist of the Year for Achievement in 2017.
