Skeptics in the Pub – Quiz!

Merseyside Skeptics Society are organising a general knowledge pub quiz.

Join your host, Dr Tom Williamson, in the Casa for a night of rational enquiry.

It is free to enter and there will be prizes for the best performances on the night!

Tom is, of course, excluded from winning a prize, unless you count being carried aloft through the streets of Liverpool on the shoulders of his peers for producing a magnificent quiz.

Everyone is welcome to come along.

Agatha Christie’s Verdict

Bravo Theatre Company in collaboration with Woollywood Theatre Company are proud to present ‘Verdict’ by Agatha Christie at The Casa on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th September.

This is how the famous storyteller herself described Verdict:

“It satisfied me completely. I still think it is the best play I have written, with the exception of Witness for the Prosecution.” Agatha Christie

Synopsis:

Karl Hendryk is a brilliant professor who, with his wife and her cousin, has fled persecution in his homeland and finds himself ensconced in England. The play concerns itself with the relationships the professor has with the women in his life. His wife, Anya, who is suffering from a progressively debilitating disease, her cousin and carer, Lisa, and Helen Rollander, a spoiled student who takes up private lessons with the professor.

Not a murder mystery or a whodunnit but a profound and thoughtful piece that deals with the human experience. Delving deeply into the psychology of relationships and moral philosophy, this is the story of a misguided idealist who loves so intensely it becomes ultimately destructive and unattainable.

Text and performance licence by arrangement with Samuel French UK.
