SHAKESPEARE’S WILL : 8pm

This historical play by Canadian writer Vern Thiessen, touches on the little known life of William Shakespeare’s wife Anne Hathaway.

Performed by Sally Hyde Lomax, The play starts immediately after Will’s funeral, and Anne has been handed Shakespeare’s last will and testament, by one of her least favourite people, his sister Joan. Anne initially ignores the will itself, and instead spends an hour reminiscing about her life with (or, as it turns out, largely without) Will. After an hour she finally reads the will, and in it finds some quite unexpected surprises.

The play has been warmly welcomed with excellent reviews. It is a lively, poignant and fun piece with never a dull moment.

SCJC PRESENT …… BRITISH SUMMERTIME ENDS featuring the Dovetail Quartet : 8pm

On Sunday October 28th most people in the UK will have had an extra hour in bed, as clocks go back to mark the end of British Summer Time. British Summer Time Ends features the Dovetail Quartet, who are a South West based jazz group of experienced musicians from varied musical and life backgrounds. Each band member brings their own unique flavour to the sound, which they like to call “urban-cosmic”. The Dovetails are unified by their love of jazz in its many styles and guises. Most of the Quartet also compose, which brings a welcome tension and variety into the dynamics of their repertoire. The way the band explore each other’s compositions is also reflected in their approach to standards and the not so familiar pieces from the jazz greats. Standing behind and underpinning the rich sound is bassist John Cook, who also runs the Jazz Jams every second Friday of the month at Under the Edge Arts. Kelvin Yearwood plays sax and is a dynamic, intelligent and thoughtful musician. Pianist, eclectic multi-instrumentalist, composer and jazz educator, Beth Jones, lives and works in Bristol. Mark Dixon on drums has played for over 40 years since joining a marching band and had a childhood infused with sound of his dad’s jazz 78’s. Come celebrate this summer transition with this exciting new Quartet.
