A comedy drama based on a true story called ‘The Big Sick’ (15) is being shown on the big screen at The Talbot Theatre, Whitchurch Leisure Centre, on Tuesday January 16 at 7.30pm.

It tells the story of the real life courtship of Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail Nanjiani and grad student Emily V Gordon. Kumail worries about what his traditional Muslim parents will think. When Emily is suddenly ill and in a coma he finds himself forced to face her feisty parents, his family’s expectations and his true feelings.

SINBAD THE SEAMAN – THE ADULT PANTO

(Crewe Lyceum, Jan 19)

Hot on the heels of last year’s Adult Panto – Puss & Dick the Market Theatre Company return to bring to life the story of Sinbad the Sailor and his epic adventures across the seas to defeat the one-eyed monster – packing it with corny jokes, raunchy plots and blatant sexual innuendo.

With a minimum of set, props and costume the fearless company of three will take this traditional story and distort it almost beyond recognition.

Featuring Nick Hooton, Carrie Laurence and Pip Johnson – who, with the help of various traditional pantomime characters (and some not so traditional) will keep you entertained and prolong the all too short seasonal spirit!

Get ready for an evening of slick, fast-moving, farcical fun and bawdy sexual innuendo (did we mention the innuendo?) for adults only.

Not suitable for under 16s. Tickets are £19.50, the show starts at 7.30pm and for more details, call 01270 368 242.

KENNY

(Theatr Clwyd, Mold, Jan 25)

In a moving, initimate and revealing portrait, Kenny looks at the career of Liverpool legend, who was a player and manager, and talks his career and his superhuman reaction to the Hillsborough disaster in 1989.

Featuring contributions from former teammates and his family, Kenny is a must for any Liverpool fan.

The showing starts at 7pm and tickets cost £6 – call 01352 701 521 for more details.
