When Darkness Falls is a brand-new spine-chilling ghost story that delivers a twisted, terrifying, and thrilling tale that will “leave you cowering in your seat.” (The Guardian)

To:19-11-2022
+ More Info +

Karl Sydow, Trademark Films and Anthology Theatre present the Watermill Theatre Production of SPIKE by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman.

“I’m not acting crazy. I’m the genuine article.”

It’s the booming fifties, and Britain is in the clutches of Goon mania as men, women and children across the country scramble to get their ear to a wireless for another instalment of The Goon Show. While Harry Secombe and Peter Sellers get down to the serious business of becoming overnight celebrities, fellow Goon and chief writer Spike finds himself pushing the boundaries of comedy, and testing the patience of the BBC.

Will Spike’s dogged obsession with finding the funny elevate The Goons to soaring new heights, or will the whole thing come crashing down with the stroke of a potato peeler?

SPIKE is an absurdly funny new play by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman (The Wipers Times, Trial By Laughter, A Bunch of Amateurs) that delves into the inner workings of one of our most unique and brilliantly irreverent comedy minds.

Blackpool Grand Theatre is one of Britain’s premier heritage theatres. Listed Grade II*, this Matcham theatre is in the top 8 per cent of all listed buildings in England, and one of only thirty listed buildings in Blackpool. It is one of only nine large theatres listed Grade II* or above, north of London. The Grand Theatre sits alongside other significant cultural heritage assets which help to create the unique Blackpool experience. Frank Matcham’s four-tier intimate auditorium with 1,045 seats helps companies create a range of atmospheres for audiences. The Grand is owned by the Blackpool Grand Theatre Trust Limited. This organisation reopened the theatre in 1981 following the efforts of a number of committed volunteers who saved the theatre from demolition. Restoration work has continued without ever closing the theatre. Blackpool Grand Theatre Trust Limited has responsibility for improving, maintaining and conserving the building and the theatre’s substantial historic and archival collections; the theatre is operated by Blackpool Grand Theatre (Arts & Entertainments) Limited and both companies are registered charities. This amazing space is a wonder of restoration and revival, presenting a full range of every performing artform, as Blackpool’s community theatre and Lancashire’s preferred Opera House.
