Why go and see it?

It has been a period of upheaval and uncertainty with COVID and the political situation. You will be amazed by my capacity to somehow take all these things personally.

Little Wander in association with PBJ Management present…Nish Kumar ‘Control’

on Monday night. Kumar, who hosts the BBC's Mash Report, was performing at the Lord's

Taverners annual charity cricket lunch.” - BBC News Report - 3rd December 2019

TAKE….

What the critics say

Kumar is the smartest, and often the silliest, political comic we’ve got: acute, furious and often the ridiculous fall guy of his own jokes.
- The Guardian
One of the best young comedians we have
- The Times

There has been a theatre on George Street for almost 185 years. The first theatre was built in 1836, and a second in 1886. In 1908, the Dorrill family took over the venue and finally in 1934, the third Theatre opened; the ‘New Theatre’. Stanley Dorrill masterminded the rebuilding of the theatre as we know it today. He commissioned a new building from the well-known theatre architects William and T.R. Milburn of Sunderland. The Milburns developed the decadent art-deco interior with T.P Bennett and Sons, who also designed the Saville Theatre in London.
