Written and performed by Mark Thomas
Thursday 6 Nov, 8.00pm
Mark tells the true story of how Britain’s biggest arms manufacturer came to spy on a comedian. It’s a personal and timely tale of planes, demos and undercover deceit told by this award-winning performer. Ten years ago an activist and close friend of Mark's was exposed as a spy for BAE Systems. Now Mark wants to find him and has some questions to ask. With plenty of laughs, some weird characters and the vague possibility that Mark might get beaten up, he finds out if he wants revenge or if he can forgive the betrayal of a friend. Director, Emma Callander.

Gets Straight To The Point* (* The PowerPoint)
Saturday 8 Nov, 8.00pm
The wonderfully innovative comedy mind behind Modern Life Is Goodish (Dave), Are You Dave Gorman? and Googlewhack Adventure is back with a brand new live show that promises more of his unique blend of stand-up comedy and visual story-telling as Dave Gorman Gets Straight To The Point*... (*The PowerPoint). Yes. That’s right. It’s a PowerPoint presentation. We know what you’re thinking. But don’t worry… as this all-new show follows the phenomenal success of his critically-acclaimed UK Tour, Dave Gorman’s Powerpoint Presentation, which included a sold-out five-night run at London’s Southbank Centre, we think you’re in pretty safe (and funny) hands. You won’t need to take notes and you almost certainly won’t be tested on it later.
