Dear BATS Mates

Dear BATS Mates

Gregory Burke's excellent Gagarin Way continues this week at BATS - book in now as the season must close on May 1.

Lynn Freeman of Capital Times says "(Gagarin Way) is devastatingly funny at times as it traverses existentialism, political terrorism, Marxism and psychopathology...Jean Betts drives her cast hard and they deliver"

To book simply reply to this email with your name, number of tickets and date you wish to attend. We will reply to confirm your booking and you can pay when you come to the show.

Plus -Young & Hungry celebrates its tenth birthday this year and is throwing a little party on Monday May 10th, 6-9pm, Buffs Grand Hall (upstairs from BATS). If you have been involved with Young & Hungry in any way over the last ten years YOU ARE INVITED. We¹d love you to come and celebrate the past ten years, and to launch the new Young & Hungry logo & Tenth Anniversary Festival. Please RSVP to Laura Staples by Monday May 3rd:

Love BATS x
