Clinton Baptiste: The Paranormalist Returns! The Capitol, Horsham Sun 8 Mar
If you liked Phoenix Nights, you’ll love this. Clinton Baptiste is the comical ‘paranormalist’ from Peter Kay’s smash hit show. He’s back, 18 years later, to give readings from beyond the grave, predict the future, and analyse the past. Funny and touching Mystic Meggery.
Ask Me Anything, The Old Market, Hove, Sun 8 Mar
Remember the problem pages in nineties and noughties magazines? Of course you do, they were the best bit. Theatre company The Paper Birds must think so too, because they’ve created this new production full of live music, mischief and mayhem after urging their audiences to ask them absolutely anything in manner of a magazine problem page. This immersive show is set in a teenager’s bedroom, a hotbed of nostalgia and angst if ever there was one.
