Mark's Brewhouse show moves to a new venue
Comedian Mark Thomas's show Bravo Figaro, due to be staged tonight at The Brewhouse, Taunton, will go ahead at a new venue – Junction 24 at Market Way, North Petherton. All tickets bought for the Brewhouse show will be honoured, and additional tickets will also be available.
The one-man production is essentially a narrative about love, death, fathers and sons, and the search for peace in an imperfect world – with a few gags thrown in for luck.
Mark's performance will begin at 8.45pm, rather than 8pm, to allow anyone who turns up at the Brewhouse time to get there.
Call 01278 662200 for more information.

Drama and dance combine in Fred and Ginger fantasy
Edgy new work Aubade – described as a satire, a thriller, and a twisted love story – opens at The Bike Shed Theatre in Exeter tomorrow. A co-production from Cube Essential Theatre, it blends film and theatre, knife-sharp dialogue and dance.
A young trainee teacher arrives at a failing school, determined to raise the aspirations of poverty-line pupils. As she struggles with a difficult class, she turns to her single, middle-aged mentor for help. But he has troubles of his own. Disillusioned, alienated, and recently bereaved after years of caring for his mother, he finds solace as the star of his own Fred Astaire fantasy. And now he's looking to cast his own Ginger Rogers, whether she wants to dance or not.
The show contains very strong language, and one scene of graphic fantasy violence, so is recommended for audiences aged 15 and over. It runs on sporadic dates through to March 9. Contact the Bike Shed for details.
Birdspotting plot has some twists waiting in the wings
Nothing will stop Roy Tunt from spotting his wild birds and on a stormy December morning on England's desolate east coast, he pursues a very special mission. With one more tick in his dog-eared notebook, Roy will have recorded all 567 species on the British List. He sequesters himself away in a birdspotter's hide on a stretch of flooded marshland. With a packed lunch and a framed photograph of his ex-wife for company, he watches and waits. But might he, perhaps, have other plans? And who is the tall, dark, suspicious stranger battling his way towards him?
Written by Tim Whitnall, The Sociable Plover is a darkly comic one-act play, which is being staged for one night only by the Fourthwall company at Calstock Hall in South East Cornwall (www.crbo.co.uk) on Saturday, March 2.
