Spike Milligan, the grandaddy of British comedy, wrote The Goon Show and died, it says here.
Order meets chaos, dreams meet reality, light meets bitter, only thruppence a pint.
Knock, knock. Who's there? Spike. Spike who? You see, they've forgotten me already. Gone, folks, gone, into a sockful of custard, and only the echoes remain.

Christmas. 2018. Mildred's abandoned cottage. A silent night in the English countryside, five women brought together by fate are determined to enjoy what could be their last Christmas, and they're celebrating this one in style!
With the odds against them the girls must improvise; food is in short supply, certain death is waiting in the shadows and no-one can remember when they last wore fresh knickers.
The decorations are up, the 'turkey' is cooking and a stranger in red is on the way...

Myra Hindley ("the first crematorium wouldn't take me"), Dora Carringon ("I loved Lytton Strachey for all time, no matter he's a sodomite"), Unity Mitford ("My body was electric, the Fuhrer's splendour pouring through me"), Jane Bowles, Carson McCullers, Elizabeth Smart, Zelda Fitzgerald - get to know each one of them through Carolyn Smart's brilliant imagistic writing, a production to savour for its language and performance.
August 4th, 1892, Fall River Massachusetts.
Mr Borden strokes his stocks and bonds; Mrs Borden ceaselessly eats. Their exhausted maid takes to her sweltering attic bed. They’re all out of sorts. Daughter Lizzie, too, feels peculiar, isn’t quite herself today. In the blistering morning heat, she irons. She could have escaped the heat, could have joined her sister at the beach. Emma begged her to come, begged her not to stay in Fall River, not to stay in the Borden house for one more minute. As if under a spell, Lizzie couldn't leave. Lizzie had a pressing date with destiny. Lizzie Borden took an axe...
Directed by Nona Shepphard, based on "The Fall River Axe Murders" by Angela Carter, adapted by Deirdre Strath, The Lizzie Play scavenges trial transcripts, newspaper reports and true crime writing to give a darkly humorous, haunting retelling of a brutal and curiously tidy act of parental butchery.

This piece takes a darkly comedic look at the man who claims to love women, but time and time again has grabbed them by the, oh it's too boring to even say it..
