Jonny Fluffypunk

Jonny Fluffypunk – How I Came to Be Where I Never Was

Wed 13 Feb, 8pm. The White Horse, Stourpaine. 01258 453535

How do you find yourself when you find yourself where you don’t belong? Jonny Fluffypunk grew up in the far-flung, forgotten reaches of outer suburbia. In 1984, he was fifteen. This is a story about being the first punk in the village and the only trainspotter in eyeliner; about unrequited love and youth club and John Peel and the forgotten gods of small record shops; about making your own myth and letting go and a million everyday life-changing moments in the back end of nowhere. This is a lo-fi stand-up spoken word performance for anyone who has listened to late-night radio under the bedcovers, or fallen in love, or just been alive. This energetic and engaging piece fuses elements of theatre, storytelling, comedy, stand-up poetry (think John Cooper-Clarke not John Keats) and even a bit of ukulele! 

Touring Dorset through Artsreach as part of The Inn Crowd Project. Free performances, donations welcomed.  Suitable 16+

Food available from 5pm – 7pm

“Acute social observation, intricate humour, surreal fantasy, sharp irony and wit… and England’s most pretentious moustache

Shooting Stars Theatre Co presents Noel Coward’s ‘Private Lives’

Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th August

5***** Review 


Shooting Stars Theatre Co presents Noel Coward’s…..’Private Lives’

SATURDAY 4th and SUNDAY 5th AUGUST at 7pm

Award-winning Shooting Stars Theatre Company return to the White Horse with Noël Coward’s Private Lives.

“I think very few people are completely normal really deep down in their private lives.”

In Coward’s classic comedy of passion, romance, anger, laughter and love, he sets the stage for a battle of the sexes when divorced couple, Amanda and Elyot, find themselves unwittingly thrown together again.

Despite their undeniable attraction the old adage proves true- ‘Spouses, you can’t live with ‘em, you can’t live without ‘em.’

Noël Coward’s play is witty, dry and playful. A lovely way to enjoy an English Summer’s evening

Buy your ticket at the pub in person or call 01258 453535
