Weathering the storms and storming Prague

Local writer making waves abroad

Caliban’s Codex is a play written and produced by local scriptwriter John Knowles and his theatre production company, It’s Not Us. HOT’s Zelly Restorick asks him about the inspiration for his latest work and how it was chosen to be performed at The Prague Fringe Festival 2018.

Time Please

Time Please

‘Time Please’ returns to The St Leonards pub on 12 and 13 June, following five days at the Brighton Fringe Festival. It’s Not Us theatre’s last outing in The St Leonards not only brought the house down, but, also the police turning up on mass after reports of a ‘woman in danger’. Whilst rehearsing the play, the company were confused to find a road full of police cars and police officers in stab vests beating on the door. Obviously the play is too real and it is one of the few plays which has to inform the local police that they are performing!

The St Leonards Pub hosts ‘lock-in like no other’!

A brand new dark comedy brings a ‘lock-in like no other’ to the St Leonards Pub for one night only. Time Please, which launched to rave reviews in March, sees feisty publican, Cath (Kate Tym) and her stoically optimistic husband, Steve (John Knowles) struggling to make ends meet in their run down pub. Closing time takes a sinister turn when Keith (Garry Fox), one of their regulars, emerges – off his head and with a planet-sized chip on his shoulder. Chock full of wild conspiracy theories, Keith wants his story heard and Cath and Steve find themselves caught up in his crack-pot plan…and it’s not going to end well.

The poster is certainly eye-catching, n’est ce pas? Zelly Restorick asks writer, producer and co-director John Knowles some questions about his play, Hitleria Pizzeria, due to be performed this Friday evening (11 November) at The Horse and Groom in St Leonards.
