    Dean Friedman 40th Anniversary UK Tour

    Dean Friedman first delighted UK audiences with his chart-topping hit, Lucky Stars.

    The now classic single, paved the way for a slew of hits from Friedman'scritically acclaimed album, "Well, Well, Said the Rocking Chair", including  Lydia, Rocking Chair, Woman of Mine and Ariel.  In a very short time, Friedman had achieved legendary, pop-icon status.

    2018 marks the 40th Anniversary of Friedman’s classic, debut album and to celebrate this milestone occasion, Dean is touring a live show of his album, together with other favourite songs from his amazing four decade career.

    Dean has earned a loyal, international following with his insightful and compelling, true-to-life ‘story songs’.  Songs including Saturday Fathers, Jennifer’s Baby, Under the Weather and It’s My Job, have prompted enthusiastic audiences to proclaim his songs ‘the soundtrack to their lives’, dealing, as they do, with family, friends, neighbours, work and the seemingly trivial, yet all are ultimately compelling and testimony to the art of a master songsmith.

    His songs with their catchy tunes and clever, witty lyrics are, in turns, intelligent, perceptive. humorous and poignant. He is recognised, by critics and fans alike, as one of the finest songwriters of his generation.

    Join Dean for a memorable evening of songs and stories about the ordinary and extraordinary lives we all share, performed by this gifted and likeable singer-songwriter.

    "Songsmith extraordinaire!” – MusicWeek

    Touch Theatre 'Escaped Alone'

    A natter and annihilation

    How do you take your tea? Black with a twist of banality? One anxiety or two?

    ‘Escaped Alone’  showcases four disarming women who maintain the simple pleasures of tea and small talk interspersed with apocalyptic and increasingly absurdist visions of environmental collapse.

    Caryl Churchill’s play deals with the ordinary and the extraordinary,  at one level exploring the fragmented nature of memory and the experience of trauma and at another looking at how the media is reporting and trivialising the effect mankind is having on the planet.

    Touch Theatre is committed to bringing strong political drama to local venues, and is delighted to be touring with an all female cast in this powerful work from one of Britain’s leading playwrights.

    This play conjures up achingly funny visions of a dystopian world.

    Has it already happened?    Did we miss it or is it Apocalypse Dreckly?

    About Lauren Dalrymple
    "A vibrant performer of lustrous textures and energy - imparts her own soul-jazz flavour and rich vibrato always pushing at the constraints of the pop-jazz techniques while holding the vibe!" John Fordham - The Guardian
    "...She has the ability to hold an audience in the palm of her hand and keep them there".
    Mike Flynn - JAZZWISE Magazine

    British born of Guyanese parents, vocalist Lauren Dalrymple has been singing since the age of 8.   Initially singing in choirs in venues such as The Royal Festival and Albert Halls. She received intense vocal training, later going on to indulge in BV session work at the age of 18 before striking up the decision to go solo at the age of 19.

    With a truly sensational catalogue of recorded and Live performance of international festivals including most of Europe, Colombia S.A, Finland, Israel  and more, Lauren is ploughing into more home grown UK performance that will encourage family and community singing alongside quality entertainment.

    Her brand  'SoFF Music, Sistah of the Fuller Figure Music',  has encouraged  the bringing together of audience and musicians and has successfully done so, mainly through SoFF Music jam session and SoFF Music Live Lounge which have run in London for 23 years.
    ☆☆☆
    "It's not enough to sing at your audience. You need, when possible, to get them involved and 100% enjoy the experience they share right alongside you".

    Simon Evans : 'Genius'Simon Evans : 'Genius'

    Simon Evans is one of the most exciting and distinctive talents to emerge on the comedy circuit in recent years. He is a familiar voice on BBC Radio 4 as a regular on The News Quiz, The Unbelievable Truth and Armando Iannucci's Charm Offensive.  Simon also contributes material to Lee Mack's BBC hit sit-com, Not Going Out.

    Ever since he was a small boy, all Evans really wanted was to be recognised by the world as a man of genius. He has, until now, remained thwarted.

    The world seems increasingly indifferent to true genius of any kind, let alone Evans’. Endlessly distracted by the trivial, we allow the classical tools of grammar, logic and rhetoric to lie unregarded in the shed of consciousness, rusting to a picturesque hue that would actually look really great on Instagram. But which filter?    Hmmm…

    'Super-sharp wit' (Time Out).
    'Wields language like a rapier' (Scotsman).
    'Please clap'
    (Jeb Bush).

    Rated 14yrs+ (Parental Guidance),  likely to be swearing and adult content.
