Swindon fringe: The O.S. Map Fan Club & Short Plays for Marvellous People
Monday 9 April, 7:30 pm
Melt away those Monday blues with this light hearted double bill at The Vic. Join us for a humorous exploration of the much loved fold out paper map followed by three beautifully comedic short plays about a 36 year olds struggles with the basics of life.
The O.S. Map Fan Club
Join Ordnance Survey enthusiast, Helen Wood, for a humorous exploration of the much-loved, fold-out, paper map. Be led on a fascinating, laughter-filled, virtual ramble and celebrate the simple beauty of Britain’s inspiring national treasure. This delightful solo comedy takes you along the ancient byways of the no. 168, 4cm to 1km, Explorer map. Meet colourful characters, hear amusing anecdotes and pause frequently to admire the view. O.S. fanatics, the O.S. curious and O.S sceptics are all welcome at the O.S. Map Fan Club.
Short Plays for Marvellous People
Join comedy writer/performer Paul Richards for three beautifully comedic plays in 1 hour. Watch and giggle as the 36-year-old (“constantly makes you smile” – Get Reading) struggles with the basics of life…such as hiring help to move house whilst retaining his own sense of masculinity, being trapped in a pub toilet and finally preparing for a date with the girl of his dreams. Gentle, heart-warming theatre, suitable for all ages. “Simple yet imaginative, it’s a charming show that’ll tickle you silly.” – Visit Dublin
