SILLICON PLANET is proud to present the debut of a new solo performance performed by talented comedic performer Olli Ricken.

Devised by Olli Ricken and Chris Carrow.

LET THEM EAT CAKE is a feature show that explores a modern woman’s dilemmas over dieting, aging, exercising, fashion, marriage, and happiness. With a witty sense of irony, LET THEM EAT CAKE confronts social stereotypes and conundrums while addressing the important questions in life such as:

Is a woman without a man like a turtle without a shell?

Should a woman’s head measurement be the same as her waist?

Can a woman bake a cake and eat it too?

Hailing from Germany, Olli Ricken combines over ten years of performing experience, circus skills, and comedy in a hilarious solo performance which guarantees that you will never look at a birthday present in the same way again.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.

Scoop Review Of Books: A Pale Ghost Writer

Reviewed by Ruth Brassington, Richard Flanagan's new novel is about a novelist hastily ghost-writing the biography of a crook about to go to trial. The reader is kept on a cliff-edge, as the narrator tries to get blood out of his stone man. More>>
