Events – Theatre


We are delighted to host a new show by the inimitable Ian Sorensen and Phil Raines. Their last show at the 2005 Glasgow Worldcon, Lucas Back In Anger was one of the best attended events at the convention and received a Hugo nomination! The 2024 show will be NOTHING, NOWHERE, NEVER AGAIN, inspired by the Hugo winning movie Everything, Everywhere, All at Once.

The Dark Room

John Robertson’s popular live-action video game, is a fast-paced, highly interactive show with improvisational comedy and retro gaming, where the audience experiences a multiplayer adventure run by John live in the hall. The show is hugely popular, has appeared at the UK Eastercon and run annually in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Tiptree: No-One Else’s Damn Secret But My Own

A woman sits quietly in her living room. She has just shot and killed her husband. Now, if you listen closely, she’s got a story to tell… Jenny Rowe’s stunning one-woman show is a deep dive into the life of celebrated SF novelist James Tiptree Jr, and explores themes of love, feminism, gender, depression and grief.

Dune – The Musical!

As the world prepared for Part 2 of Denis Villeneuve’s cinematic vision of Frank Herbert’s masterpiece, solo performance artist Dan Collins has been wondering – what if we distilled Dune down to its component parts? What if we added some whimsical and comedic songs? What if the whole story could be told in one hour, by one man, with one guitar? Behold: Dune – The Musical! Fresh off the back of a critically acclaimed run at Edinburgh Festival in 2023, Dan’s show is the perfect way to experience this SF classic.
