New exhibition in the Meetbox

After NouveauStephen Evans is showing his paintings in the Meetbox until the end of August. Stephen is active member of Droitwich Arts Network and his paintings are often on display in the Droitwich art venues.

One of the newest paintings Stephen chose to show on this exhibition is ‘After Nouveau’  painted in watercolour and ink. Stephen says, “It was taken from a print I found in the October issue of the Artist Magazine 1896. It was an interesting, challenging but enjoyable project and was I very pleased with the finished painting.”

In his paintings, Stephen Evans shows an interest in various topics such as nature, animals, architecture, seascapes, people in action, and he is always willing to experiment with new subject or technique.

Up Pompeii this week in the Norbury Theatre

Up PompeiiA cult BBC sit-com from the early 1970’s written for the cult comedian – Frankie Howerd. This brilliantly crafted homage to this TV classic brings out all that was truly captivating about the heyday of bawdy comedy and innuendo and genius of Frankie Howerd.

The story is set in ancient Rome, before the huge eruption (Ooh Missus -see what I did there!) Lurcio (the part written for Howerd), the slave of Senator Ludicrous Sextus, and our hero and guide is attempting to deliver his traditional Prologue and begin proceedings but he quickly gets caught up in the myriad of sexual liaisons in all quarters of his master’s house.

Why does Ludicrous not leave for the Senate meeting in Rome? Why does his wife, Ammonia, return so quickly from the country? Who will take care of the escaped slave girl, Voluptua, and will Nausius, Ludicrous and Ammonia’s e ete son, ever be able to write a decent love poem? Whilst growing chaos ensues, an increasing rumbling is heard in the distance – what could that possibly be? (Hint – the clue is in the title!)
