Something for the Weekend (16-18 May 08)

Thespians on a ship and hop that is hip in new recruit, Heather Smith's weekend pointers

Published on May 16th 2008.

Something for the Weekend (16-18 May 08)

Our very own Roger McGough puts his witty spin on Moliere’s famous Seventeenth Century comedy, giving it a new lease of life at The Playhouse exclusively for 2008. In what seems to be a so far faultless production, expect plenty of quips, quirks and rhyming couplets (The lustful, villainous Tartuffe is the only character to speak in prose).

Although McGough and director Gemma Bodinetz have kept the archaic appearance, the performance - which boasts an impressive cast: Eithne Brown, Joseph Alessi and Annabelle Dowler to name but a few - promises to deliver two hours of contemporary comedy bliss.

Tartuffe runs until Sat 31st May @ The Liverpool Playhouse, £9.50 - £20

Mystic Bounce
A brand new club night is bouncing, quite literally, into the up-and-coming Baltic Triangle area of the city (think Robert Cain’s Brewery, The New Picket etc). The event will be held at the classy Contemporary Urban Centre where resident DJ’s Ryan “Razzalini” Turner (So What? Playground, Shelf) and Marc Owen (Wowiemowie, Mysakes, Bubblegum) promise to churn out a Jazz-based blend of Soul, Funk, Reggae and Hip Hop until the “late” bar decides it’s time to throw in the towel.

Definitely one for the abstract minded, with the visuals pledging to be on parity with the sound. You should also be pleased to hear that there is no entry fee. Talk about cherry on top.

Mystic Bounce - Free Entry
Fri 16th May, 8.30 – Late
Contemporary Urban Centre (CUC)
41-51 Greenland Street

Let them eat cake
Good Lord. It's all kicking off again aboard Walk the Plank's crazy theatre ship!

The Potting Shed is back with another themed night of mayhem. The name of the night should be enough to send you wildwith excitement. Marie Antoinette's Post Punk Regency Ball will offer an exciting mix of homegrown talent as well as special guests from as far afield as Barcelona, Basel and Copenhagen.

As ever, expect the unexpected (although dance, theatre and comedy come as standard.) Oh, and wearing a mask is apparently obligatory.

Marie Antoinette's Post Punk Regency Ball
The Potting Shed aboard Canning Dock (big blue ship next to Albert Dock)
£7.50 – tickets can be bought in advance from www.walktheplank.co.uk
Tickets for DJ and Dancing only will be available on the gangplank from 11pm £3
