This one act play consisting of three serial killers’ stories in their cells for life is a chilling insight into the minds of true criminals...

Mace & Burton Present... Rom Com Con

Mace & Burton Present... Rom Com Con

So we all know the premise for a rom com: girl meets boy, some sort of complication, girl and boy fall in love. And we all know that although rom coms are entertaining and perhaps inspiring at times, real life is rarely like the movies and that relationships don’t always just spring out of a chance encounter... 

The Silent Movie Experience

The Silent Movie Experience

Following the success of The Artist in 2011, the silent movie has had a new burst of interest amongst today’s audience. With films coming out every week and half of them never being heard of after the premiere because they didn’t excel at the Box Office, sometimes it is nice to be reminded of the simplicity and the pleasure that cinema has always been able to provide...

Award-Winning Comedian Nik Coppin

Award-Winning Comedian Nik Coppin

When you see ‘Award-Winning’ in front of a comedy act, you tend to sit up and expect something pretty good. However it seems Nik Coppin hasn’t heard of the term ‘false advertising’ as unfortunately this sketch left something to be desired... 

Funny Women Brighton Nights

Funny Women Brighton Nights

One problem that I find with comedy is making sure that everyone’s tastes are catered to. There’s always the prude who blushes at the dirty jokes or the more outgoing ones, shouting out alternative, ruder punch lines and it seems unavoidable that someone’s sense of humour is left unsatisfied... 

Bug by Tracy Letts
