Have we seen you here lately?

26 June 2006

Hello all,

The Back bar is pumping out the warming winter wines, the Young and Hungry shows are hotting up with every night and so by this Saturday (their closing night) all three shows will be on fire - Have YOU been yet? Book now! Avoid disappointment!

The same can be said about the shows we have opening in the next couple of weeks: can you believe BATS Theatre is hosting the first professional production of the original Angry Young Man show, Look Back in Anger, 50 years after it first shocked audiences? You better believe it, and you better book for that too, because it is gonna be a big one.

Come in from the cold, bring your friends, send your siblings, and we'll see you soon.



Warm up here - to book for any performance at BATS email with your name, the show, date and number of tickets. We will reply to confirm your booking and you can pay when you come to the show. Choice!

Generator by Rochelle Bright
Set in a shed out in the country at Pauly's 21st, the same spot where his girlfriend mysteriously disappeared from his 16th party. Starring some very fine young actors and a yard glass - enough said. A little bit thriller, a little bit mystery and a little bit Rock n Roll.

Butt Ugly by Thomas Sainsbury
Claudia and her band of cartoon-character freaks attempt to take on the injustices of the world and make everyone realise once and for all just how bloody awful it is to be BUTT UGLY. For all of us who have been there, and know what it was like...
Plus it has an awesomely wacky band who have me dancing in the aisle - brilliant to watch!
