Sunday 6th @ May 7.30pm, The Hawth Theatre, Crawley
Martine McCutcheon, first found fame as Tiffany Mitchell in Eastenders in the 1990s, before releasing her platinum-selling debut solo album You, Me & Us in 1999 which included the No. 1 single Perfect Moment. West End and TV roles followed and along the way she became the nation’s sweetheart. In 2003, Martine memorably played Natalie opposite Hugh Grant in Love Actually.
Now 41, happily married, mother of a 2 year old, the time felt right to return to the studio. Martine has co-written most of the songs on the new album Lost and Found with her husband, the multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Jack McManus, and she has never sounded better!
Martine is back not only musically; she also reprised her role in the Comic Relief reunion of Love Actually last year and has just wrapped a film with Alan Davies called The Bromley Boys. However it’s music that’s her main focus. First single Say I’m Not Alone, is a song like nothing Martine has ever recorded before; big, bold, brash, merging clanging guitars, thumping drums and a hard hitting lyric. Other album highlights include the rocky Any Sign Of Life, the beautiful Stay With Me (which is a duet with Jack) and album closer Rebellion.
The album is a deeply personal record that deals with everything from relationships to an illness that saw her unable to work. “Life brought this album about very gradually,” explains Martine. “It was a really unconscious thing; I started writing the songs at a time in my life when I’d lost everything.”
The show will be a chance to hear Martine perform songs from Lost and Found in a stripped back setting, as well as some of her previous hits and fan-favourites. There will also be lots of anecdotes from her long and varied career, plus a chance to ask some questions.
Tickets: £30.00 are available from The Hawth Box Office on 01293 553636 or by visiting www.hawth.co.uk
WALK RIGHT BACK: The Everly Brothers Story
Wednesday 9th May 7.30pm, The Hawth Crawley
From the Producers of That’ll be the Day and direct from the West End comes Walk Right Back, a brand-new musical production telling the story of the most successful duo of all time – The Everly Brothers. Featuring hits such as Bye Bye Love, All I Have To Do Is Dream & Cathy’s Clown, this unique concert-based musical entwines the wonderful, sad yet glorious story of The Everly Brothers.
Follow the brothers’ rise from humble country beginnings to the biggest duo act the world had ever seen, then their inevitable split and decade-long feud, to the magnificent reunion that gave them back to the world, and back to each other.
With “harmonies from heaven” that influenced The Beatles, The Beach Boys, and Simon & Garfunkel, The Everly Brothers were unmatched in their talent.
Director Peter John Jackson Says: “The Everly Brothers were an original and unique act that had a sound like nothing else. Their harmonies were so tight that every group wanted to emulate them. Before that there was a singer, a band and backing vocals, The Everly’s entwined all of them and created “the harmony group.”
International Everly Brothers Fan Club favourites, Luke and Aaron Wilson star as the iconic brothers.
Producer Ollie Gray says: “Casting was a big challenge as we felt it a must to have siblings playing Don and Phil, but after a long search we spotted two young brothers that were already honing their own tribute to the Everly Brothers. We were struck not only by their vocal blend but also their uncanny resemblance to Don and Phil Everly.”
Walk Right Back is the first show of its kind to tell this phenomenal story of two brothers and their unforgettable music. Also featuring songs from a couple of the Everly Brothers’ good friends, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison, Walk Right Back is surely a show not to be missed!
Tickets priced £23 are available from The Hawth Box Office on 01293 553636 and www.hawth.co.uk.

IVO GRAHAM: Educated Guess
Friday 18th May, The Hawth, Crawley
“Boyish wonder is better than ever” – The Standard ★★★★
“A series of exceptionally strong, personal anecdotes loaded with great lines” – The Scotsman ★★★★
“Cheerfully eloquent” – Sunday Times
“Slick, well-rehearsed stand-up without an inch of fat on it, and most importantly it’s funny too” – The Skinny
“A remarkable talent for spinning laughs from the unfortunate realities of his existence… it’s polished, poised stand-up” – Fest Mag ★★★★
Following a highly acclaimed, total sell-out run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe, IVO GRAHAM brings his show Educated Guess on a tour of the UK in 2018.
In a Britain (Facebook news feed) that demands a political and social conscience, and with the time ticking down til the loss of his youth (Young Person’s Railcard), professional layabout and trustafarian snowflake Ivo Graham needs to stir himself out of his stupor. Sent by his parents to Eton, the Best Education A Man Can GetTM, he spent the noughties powering his way through his schoolwork on a steam train of diligence and loneliness. But somewhere along the way he got some mates, tried his hand at stand up, stopped reading books, and blinked to find himself in his mid-twenties and suddenly feeling like the least informed guy in the class: that horrible nagging sense that a banging set of exam results count for nothing in the university of life.
So here we are, then: a show about privilege-checking by a chap with more privilege to check than most: a show about self-improvement by a chap whose intellectual peak was Latin GCSE: a show about current affairs by a chap who this year “got up to date with politics” by learning all 650 UK MPs for a bet, only for a snap election to render that exercise even more futile than it already was. And, lest we forget, a comedy show, by a chap who’s taken three critically-lauded stand-up hours to the Fringe and whose most pressing concern of all is making this one the funniest yet.
Ivo has appeared on BBC’s Mock The Week, Live At The Apollo, Live From The BBC, Fighting Talk, and The Now Show, and Dave’s As Yet Untitled.
Tickets priced £13.50 (discounts: £11.50) are available from The Hawth Box Office on 01293 553636 and www.hawth.co.uk.
