On its way to the West End, the musical, Stepping Out is at Cambridge Arts theatre from October 31 to November 5, starring Amanda Holden, Angela Griffin, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Tamzin Outhwaite and Nicola Stephenson.
Matthew Kelly and Felicity Montagu (who played the long-suffering PA Lynn in I’m Alan Partridge and Perpetua in Bridget Jones) will play Mr and Mrs Bennet in a stage version of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice at Cambridge Corn Exchange next month.
Frank McGuinness’s iconic war play, Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme, is at Cambridge Arts Theatre from October 4 to 8. The play is in remembrance of July 1, 1916, the first day of the Battle of the Somme when thousands of men were killed. The play features on eight ordinary Irishmen involved in the slaughter. We see their conflicts as they fight a fight that isn’t theirs. These heroes are all the more real for being human and flawed.
