PLEASE NOTE: Due to the major refurbishment the Borough Theatre is undertaking, the event has been moved to The Beaufort Theatre, Ebbw Vale

BORIS JOHNSON replaces Theresa May as PM. Show REWRITTEN. 

The 2019 GENERAL ELECTION happens. Show REWRITTEN again. 

COVID-19 arrives – show REWRITTEN for the third time. 

So the 2019/2020 HEALING THE NATION TOUR has become the 2019/2020/2021 HEALING THE NATION TOUR, and as the tour has gone on, there’s been less and less healing and more and more of the opposite. Admittedly, I could have changed the title but it still seemed strangely appropriate - and some of the gigs have been rescheduled so it would prove confusing to existing ticketholders if the ticket said “HEALING THE NATION” but the show was now called “MY LIFE IN BALLET”. 

So, we have the serially rewritten HEALING THE NATION TOUR 2019/2020 now EXTENDED INTO 2022, not so much due to POPULAR DEMAND but more lack of OPEN VENUES. And with NEGATIVE POWERS OF HEALING. Yet this latest, very new version of the show is my FAVOURITE so far.

Every Little Thing’s Gonna Be Alright

A few years ago, it seemed unlikely that the UK would vote to leave the EU; we had a reasonable opposition to the Tory Government; Donald Trump was a buffoon who surely wasn’t going to beat Hillary Clinton and Mark was living the married suburban ideal, since then it’s all gone to absolute sh*t! But don’t worry as Mark thinks Every Little Thing’s Gonna Be Alright.
