THE OTHER
February 13th 7pm

"The Other" references and honours International Holocaust Day by bringing together several threads. At the heart is a play by David Campton, Us and Them, which tells the story of two groups of people, alike in every way, who confront one another across a bare stage. To this exploration of prejudice and how it grows, we have added readings from people who both survived the Holocaust and succumbed to it.
The Other is Wigton Theatre Club's tribute to all who have died as a result of racism, and our pledge to fight racism and all other forms of discrimination in everything we do!

OLD HERBACEOUS
15th March 2019 7:30pm

Peter Macqueen returns to the John Peel Theatre.
Pottering amongst the seeds and cuttings at the back of his ramshackle greenhouse in the garden of a Gloucstershire manor house is Herbert Pinnegar. Now in his twilight years, he’s full of memories and tales of a bygone era. In between potting up and potting on, he recounts his journey from orphan boy to legendary head gardener ‘Old Herbaceous’ and tells of his friendship with the lady of the house, Mrs Charteris.
Sown with seeds of gardening wisdom, this charming one man show is a love story – a humorous and touching portrayal of a single-minded yet gentle man with a passion for plants.
