Simon Evans: The Work of the Devil
Fri 11th Nov 2022, 8:00pm
Off The Kerb Productions present:Simon Evans: The Work of the Devil.
A regular on Radio 4, Simon Evans’ last show, Genius 2.0 ( “A Masterclass” ***** The Scotsman) provided an hilarious analysis of the departure of any visible sign of intelligence from modern life. But his new show raises the stakes, with his usual excoriating views of a world on fire given a perspective shift from personal revelations that turned his world upside down this year.

An Evening With Henry Blofeld
Sat 12th Nov 2022, 7:30pm
My Dear Old Things

Being confined to the pavilion for the past couple of seasons has given Henry time to reconnect with his Norfolk roots and reflect on a truly extraordinary life.  This reflection inspired the online film, At Home With Henry, and this new theatre show.

In My Dear Old Things, Blowers recalls his days as a young England hopeful, how an Eton bus knocked him off his stride - and his bike - recoiling from a career in the City to work as a cricket journalist before finding his way into the TMS box. 

There are hilarious tales of Johnners, Arlott and other larger-than-life characters in the box and on tour with England. Henry also has plenty of hysterical stories from his post-retirement appearances on Would I Lie to You? and The Real Marigold Hotel. 

Backed by film and rare personal pictures on our big screen, My Dear Old Things is an absolute treat for the cricket connoisseur and a wonderfully engaging evening for all.

Horse Country
Thu 24th Nov 2022, 7:30pm
Horse Country, a euphemism for the United States, is a play about, Bob and Sam, two average men, attempting to solve the problem of seals, western culture, fish, genocide and the American Dream across a table, while endlessly drinking Bourbon and searching for the elusive nine of diamonds. 

This comedy uses Beckett in a Vaudeville-esque, absurdist love affair with words and meaning, it's an hilarious provocative take on early 21st Century American culture.

Anarchic and surreal, this delightful and confusing satire surprises and provokes in spades… or the nine of diamonds…

“A profound yet hilarious interchange between two of the most brilliant idiots one has the pleasure of being forced to watch.” – New York Herald

Every Little Thing’s Gonna Be AlrightA 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.
