Warhol: Bullet Karma

Written and performed by Garry Roost
Directed by Kenneth Hadley


Tickets: £13.00 / Concessions: £10.00

"Don't think about making art, just get it done."
                                                          Andy Warhol (1928-1987)


After a successful premiere at Sweet Venues Edinburgh Festival 2018, Garry returns for another three-day run with his darkly witty take on the American icon of pop art.

The play looks at Warhol's early life and his obsessive determination to "become famous". Warhol was obsessively self-conscious so much so he found it impossible to have meaningful physical sexual intimacy. His father left him a contribution toward his education to go to college.

This Warhol excelled at and was recognised by his tutor to be "the most gifted and talented student I've ever seen." Andy eventually moved to New York and got his dream job as a commercial artist. The factory came later along with the extraordinary explosion of ideas and concepts that would shake the pop art world. This did not come easily, and Roost unfolds the story, the lives and tragic losses of those who lived and died in the factory.


"… a very talented solo performer. He lays a very real Warhol out before us warts and all never sugaring the pill." - Pip Utton

"Brilliant performance." - Broadway Baby

"...a totally convincing Warhol." - Philip Wyn Jones - Chapter Performance

Midnight In Manhattan

To be free is to have achieved your life.” - Tennessee Williams

Three one-act plays by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Séamus Newham
Produced by Léonie Scott-Matthews


Tickets: £13.00 / Concessions: £10.00

For Pentameters' seventh annual Tennessee Williams' programme, Williams shifts his dramas from the Deep South to the Big Apple, in three plays exploring the marital problems of couples who have grown apart.

Every Twenty Minutes (1938): the wayward husband who boasts his predilection for other women to his wife!

The Pink Bedroom (1943): the mistress, tired of being the kept woman, wants something more than a long-term arrangement.

The Fat Man’s Wife (1938): should the betrayed wife of a womanising show-biz producer stay with him, or run away with a younger man who is completely captivated by her?
