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.

A Penny Pincher’s Christmas Carol

The writing/performing team of Kate Tym and John Knowles (Rat in the Cellar, Time Please and Hilteria Pizzeria) return to the stage with a brand new family play based on ‘A Christmas Carol. Those familiar with Dicken’s seasonal classic might recall that there are quite a lot of people in his story, as well as amazing special effects; well not in this version, as ‘A Penny Pincher’s Christmas Carol’ brings you the abridged version with just two actors. What could possibly go wrong? John Knowles writes.
