Mary Anning - Lost In Time

Mary Anning - Lost In Time

AsOne Theatre Company present


Mary Anning - ‘Lost in Time’


Mary Anning is “probably the most important unsung (or inadequately sung) collecting force in the history of paleontology” Stephen Jay Gould.


It is 1846, and  the little town of Lyme Regis is battered by howling winter-gales. Dying and increasingly dependent on laudanum, fossil hunter, Mary Anning reflects on her life. By challenging the status quo whilst making remarkable strides in a male dominated scientific world, her work threatens to disprove the very foundations she was raised on. Haunted by hallucinations of friends, enemies and even the creatures she spent her life hacking out of the living rock, Anning tries to make sense of her existence in her last moments. AsOne bring their signature magical blend of narrative, movement, music and visuals to tell this true story about legacy and coming to terms with the past.


Written for AsOne by Peter John Cooper

Directed by Marta Vella

Music by Joe Butcher

Produced by AsOne theatre

Project managed by Jane McKell and Vikesh Godhwani


“A daring and provocative production"

'Antigone, Interrupted' (10+)

'Antigone, Interrupted'

Artsreach presents Scottish Dance Theatre with

Antigone, Interrupted


Would you risk everything for what you believe?

A young girl ready to die to defend what she thinks is right. A king determined to impose his will as the rule of law. Antigone, Interrupted re-imagines a classic story for the modern world through the body and the voice of a single performer.


Scottish Dance Theatre Artistic Director Joan Clevillé presents an intimate solo work specifically commissioned for rural venues, created in collaboration with acclaimed performer Solène Weinachter.

Using his distinctive mixture of dance, theatre, and storytelling, Clevillé examines the notion of dissent in democracy, and how the female body can be the target of oppression but also a powerful tool for resistance.


In his first creation as Artistic Director of Scottish Dance Theatre, choreographer Joan Clevillé and performer Solène Weinachter present a solo show based on the play Antigone by Sophocles.


Using his distinctive mixture of dance, theatre and storytelling, Clevillé creates the emotion, passion and integrity of a full Greek play in a one-woman piece, for a contemporary audience.


"Greek tragedies are supposed to have lots of people on stage wearing fancy costumes and masks…you have only me so wish me luck!" Solene


60 minute show + Q&A

Shadowing Hank

Shadowing Hank

‘A remarkably proficient guitarist… he not only sounds like Hank Marvin, but could almost be him onstage’ – Guitar & Bass Magazine


Guitarist Justin Daish is a long-standing friend of the Exchange. In 2010 and 2012 his band The Shadowers played here alongside ex-Shadows bassists Alan Jones and Justin's dear, late friend Brian 'Licorice' Locking, and in 2019 he dazzled as he guested for Jimmy Jemain ('Stars in Their Eyes') in the Cliff Richard tribute 'Wired for Sound'.


Now Justin returns with his Hank Marvin extravaganza; a sparkling production which took more than two years to develop.


The visual similarity to Hank Marvin is not the only likeness in this show; Justin's famously accurate guitar sound has seen him share the stage with Bruce Welch and Jet Harris.


Featuring The Shadows’ greatest hits, including  ‘Apache’, ‘Wonderful Land’, ‘Foot Tapper’ and ‘Cavatina’, plus music that Hank Marvin has recorded and performed over a record-breaking 60-year career, Shadowing Hank captures the magic of the great man’s live shows.


Shadowing Hank certainly has a claim to the title ‘biggest small show in the world’. Come and see why, and join in this celebration of the music of one of the UK’s greatest-ever guitarists. You’ll be doing the Shadows Walk into the night, and humming the famous tunes long after you leave the theatre!

The two Artists brought a unique Texas influence into their music and through their creative writing for both an individual sound was born!

Roy Orbison went on to write so many songs including ‘Only the Lonely’ & ‘Crying’, and Buddy Holly in his short Career showed his writing talents would of gone on to match any songwriter in the world, which earned him a place (13th) in ‘The Rolling Stone’ ‘100 Greatest Artist of all Time’!


Darren Page’s vocal abilities have brought a reputation that always delivers a quality to entertain, but Darren’s secret love in music is Roy Orbison which sits very comfortable in Darren Page’s voice range.

The show has been rescheduled from 12th June 2020.


All tickets purchased for 12th June are valid for 4th December 2021.


Andy Fairweather Low's pedigree is the stuff rock dreams are made of. He first came to prominence at the vanguard of the new youthful expression of music as the lead singer in Amen Corner. The 60s saw them clock up hit after pop hit. Songs such as 'Bend Me Shape Me', 'Hello Suzy', '( If Paradise is) Half As Nice' are internationally remembered to this day. But if you were paying close attention you might have picked up a clue in the magnificent 'Gin House' to Andy's future musical collaborations.


Since the early days Andy has gone on to work with Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, David Crosby, The Band, Elton John, Roger Waters, Richard and Linda Thompson, Dave Gilmour, The Who, BB King, Joe Cocker, Steve Winwood, Donald 'Duck' Dunn, Jimmy Page, Ronnie Lane, Linda Ronstadt, Roddy Frame, Emmylou Harris, Joe Satriani, the Bee Gees, Jeff Beck, The Impressions, Lonnie Donegan, Ringo Starr, Steve Gadd, David Sanborn, Benmont Tench, Warren Zevon, Charlie Watts, Mary J. Blige, Dave Edmunds, Georgie Fame, Bonnie Raitt, Otis Rush, Phil Collins, Van Morrison, Gerry Rafferty, Chris Rea, Buddy Guy, Chris Barber, Jackson Browne, Bill Wyman, Sheryl Crow, Clarence'Gatemouth' Brown, Pete Townshend... and hundreds more.

 

Now following a solo path, his first solo album in 24 years Sweet Soulful Music was released late in 2007 followed by The Very Best Of Andy Fairweather Low which was released in the UK in June 2008 and the Live DVD followed hot on it's heels.

A world tour as musical director with Roger Waters band then a European tour with Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings might be difficult to top for most people - but not for Andy Fairweather Low who just segued smoothly into a major solo tour last summer with some of the world's finest musicians in his band. Following an acclaimed UK Tour in Autumn 2012 Andy completed a third tour with The Low Riders in Germany.

If you just remember Andy's early work and major solo hits such as 'Wide Eyed And Legless', you're in for a treat - there's so much more!


Andy and the band opened the shows for Eric Clapton on his his 2013 European Tour, Summer Festivals and then Japanese and UK tours in their own right promoting the release of their wonderful new album Zone-O-Tone.

Ruby Turner

 Ruby Turner
All tickets previously sold are valid for the new date of 6th October 2022. Ruby Turner was born in Jamaica and grew up in Montego Bay. Her Grandfather sang the lead in one of the Island's Gospel Groups. Moving to England when she was 9, Ruby has lived here ever since. "Soul, Gospel, and R&B : Ruby Turner is truly the genuine article. Blessed with a voice that can breathe life and meaning into any song, whether it be a passionate ballad or a fast groove" - The Guardian Her career to date has always had many unexpected twists and turns with major tours, theatre and TV appearances, and touring with Jools Holland, the future continues to look positive. On 4 June 2012 Ruby performed 'You Are So Beautiful' with Jools Holland at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert outside Buckingham Palace in London. In autumn 2012 Ruby was a guest judge on BBC 'The Choir: Sing While You Work with choirmaster Gareth Malone' and in 2013 Ruby was a guest judge on BBC 'Songs of praise gospel choirs competition. In June 2016 Ruby was awarded an MBE. Her major break came in the mid 1980's, when she was asked to join 'Culture Club' at the height of their stardom. Ruby very quickly learned how to deal with the routine of gruelling tour schedules, living out of a suit case and performing to vast sell-out audiences. An offer of a solo record deal closely followed and she soon signed to Jive Records, part of the Zomba Group. Four albums and a "Best of" Compilation Album were all released to critical acclaim over the next few years making Ruby a household name. This period went on to spawn the hits 'I'd Rather Go Blind', 'If You're Ready' (Come Go With Me) and in the American R'n'B chart, the Number 1 hit single 'It's Gonna Be Alright' - one of less than ten British records to achieve this! It was at this time that she also released her hit album 'The Motown Songbook' on which she performed with some of the truly great stars of that era - The Four Tops, The Temptations, Jimmy Ruffin etc. To date, Ruby has released 17 albums plus the BBC's 'Live From Glastonbury', as well as appearing on releases by the likes of Brian Ferry, UB40, Steve Winwood and Mick Jagger. She is also one of the main singers in Jools Holland's R&B Orchestra, and features on many Tracks on his Albums.
