Sunny Afternoon

Tues 13 to Sat 17 September


Sunny Afternoon is I think the best of this format of show that I have seen to date, and the only problem with it is that it has such a short run this time round at the Playhouse, as I am sure it could pull the crowds in for much longer

NORDIC NOIR AND BEYOND

The best of crime / noir drama from around the world

NORDIC NOIR & BEYOND DVD REVIEWS PAGE

THE OUT-LAWS is released on DVD on Monday 19th September by Nordic Noir & Beyond.

Antonio Forcione and Sarah Jane Morris

Compared To What

Sarah Jane Morris is not just a singer, but a performance artist and Antonio Forcione is a hugely talented musician that plays as much from his heart on guitar as with his fingers, and this album captures that essence of both performers.
