Volpone

Ben Johnson’s classic satire of cunning and greed is brought vividly to life by African Caribbean theatre company Tangle

“Honour? There’s no such thing.”


Volpone is rich – filthy rich. For him the glory of accumulating wealth is more thrilling than its simple possession. In lust for more he and his assistant, the rascal Mosca, swindle three of the wealthiest men in the city, each believing they are his sole heirs. Daring trickery and avarice ensues in this bitingly fresh version of Ben Johnson’s comedy.


Inspired by Southern African Township Theatre, a multi-skilled ensemble of three actors performs to an enticing backdrop of jazz-fusion, delivered with Tangle’s trademark dynamism.

Professor Robert Winston

Professor Winston examines the role of brain imaging, hormone study, sexuality, child development, pharmacology and

psychological research in understanding how science may help us be happier.


Happy people tend to live longer, and recent research suggests we tend to get happier as we get older. Is this simply because we become more forgetful? Can we make ourselves happier and if so, will knowledge of brain function and how we might manipulate it give us more fulfilled lives?

Tony Stockwell - Psychic Medium (16)

Tony Stockwell - Psychic Medium

Remarkably compelling, amazingly detailed and always humorous.


The popular star of TV’s Street Psychic, Psychic Private Eyes and Psychic Academy, Tony Stockwell has a long established credibility as one of the top Intuitive Mediums and has shared the stage all round the world with international mediums such as Colin Fry, James van Praagh and Lisa Williams. Tony demonstrates his belief that those who have passed can communicate with their loved ones with detailed messages frequently including names, dates and locations and all delivered with emotion, sensitivity and empathy. The evening may include psychometry, photographs readings and psychic prediction.


Recent legislative guidelines insist that any Evening of Mediumship should be billed ‘for entertainment purposes’. Tony certainly uses his natural wit, showmanship and Cockney charisma to entertain but more important, Mediumship has the potential to change someone’s life and instil in them a sense of peace, comfort and purpose. We hope that nobody can fail to come away untouched by the experience.

Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, Far from the Madding Crowd is the story of Bathsheba Everdene. Having inherited her father’s farm, Bathsheba finds herself playing mistress in a man’s world. She is pursued by three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak, a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching wilfulness; the handsome and reckless Sergeant Troy; and William Boldwood, a prosperous and obsessive landowner. But are any of them a match for the independent and spirited Bathsheba?


This amateur production of Thomas Hardy’s ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’ has been adapted by Nick Healy and is presented by special arrangement with Nick Hern Books.


Don’t miss the chance to see the stars of the future on stage today as BOVTS tour Dorset with Artsreach.
