I know it’s short notice, but there’s a great show going on this afternoon at 2pm in the museum at Lichfield Street in Walsall. ‘The Life and Times of the Tat Man’ is a continuation of the great shows created by Dave Calcutt, Glen Buglass and the team working on the history around the Bayards Colts.
They previously made a great impression on me at last year’s night market in Walsall and their Christmas Show was highly praised – and sold out.
I’d be grateful if you could give The Life and Times of the Tat Man by David Calcutt a mention on your blog tomorrow.
The play is turning into a bit of a thing. Have a read of Stuart William’s review of the play.
We reduced the redoubtable Stu to tears! So far we have had two full houses. I believe we have created an important piece of theatre whose effect on the audience is as much about what it means to come from round here as the effect of the drama on people’s emotions.
The next show is on Saturday afternoon 3rd May, 2pm in the Museum, Lichfield Street, Walsall.
Birmingham Festival have booked it, so have Ludlow Fringe and Black Country Touring have put it onto their Autumn offerings. It would be great if you could come and review it.
Sorry, Glen, I’m at work tomorrow, but hope to catch a performance soon. What you’re doing is tremendous, and is also very important.
Please do get along and see it if you can…
