My Kind of Michael
Directed by Danny Braverman
The gregarious and disarming Nick Cassenbaum is a theatre maker and storyteller and there’s a certain celebrity from whom he’s learnt a lot… Ever since he was a kid, Michael Barrymore has been his hero.
Adored by audiences, he was once the king of British television. Nick believes that Barrymore was Britain’s best entertainer and he’s ready to convince you of that too.
Using playful techniques plucked from Michael Barrymore’s own oeuvre, Nick will explore the major moments of the life of a cultural icon.
Following the smash-hit tour of his show Bubble Schmeisis (★★★★ “generous and poignant” The Stage), My Kind of Michael is full of hilarity and generosity as Nick recounts coming of age in awe of Barrymore.

Your Sexts Are Shit
“You had an arse full of farts that night, darling, and I fucked them out of you, big fat fellows, long windy ones, quick little merry cracks and a lot of tiny little naughty farties ending in a long gush from your hole.” James Joyce, letter to Nora Barnacle, 1908
Before sexts there were hand-written letters. And loads of them were proper filthy. Rachel Mars, whose ★★★★ “hilarious’ and ‘spiky” Our Carnal Hearts (The Guardian) sold out across the country, has gone in search search of sex and love letters. With the help of the internet, friends and two sexologists, she has unearthed missives dating back centuries.
Come and witness a night of some of the most shocking, tender, and hilarious sex letters from dead people including Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keefe and Mozart, as well as sexts sent in by anonymous donation.
