    "It seems to me that Steve Tilston has never sought fame on anything but his own terms. He has been driven by his own enthusiasm for his chosen subject matter.  He writes beautiful words and melodies and when our generation of songwriters is assessed on our contribution to our time, Steve’s work will rank alongside much better known artists"  Ralph McTell

    "He is one of my and Fairport Convention’s favourite performers. If you haven’t heard him, I suggest you go and check him out as soon as possible. A remarkable talent!"  Dave Pegg, Fairport Convention

    AN INSPECTOR CALLS  

     The Birling family are toasting the engagement of their daughter, when the joyous occasion is suddenly and un, expectedly interrupted by the arrival of a stranger at the door. An Inspector has called to investigate the tragic death of a young woman. A suicide, or so it would seem…

    As the mysterious Inspector Goole questions each member of this affluent family he discovers their links to this tragic young woman’s death.

    Peeling away layer upon layer of deceit he exposes the lies that infect this seemingly respectable family and reveals the deeply entrenched hypocrisy at the heart of Edwardian society.

    An Inspector Calls is J.B. Priestley’s most famous work. It has been produced on stage, radio, television and in film numerous times since it was first performed in the UK in 1946.

  • Wed 25 Sep 2013 7:30 PM - Sat 28 Sep 2013 7:30 PM

    The MAC Theatre Birmingham

    25th to the 28th September 2013 at 19.30, Saturday Matinee at 14.30

    A genteel hotel in Bournemouth is the location for ‘Separate Tables’ which features two linked plays, is undoubtedly Terence Rattigan’s finest work and demonstrates his art of characterisation.

    At table one sits a down-at-heel journalist is confronted by his ex-wife who provoked him to a violent act that ruined him. Still loving each other they nevertheless go through another terrible scene as they seek to repair their broken lives.

    In table two, a bogus army Major without the background he claims and a neurotic girl with a ruthless domineering mother are attracted to each other. A sordid scandal threatens to drive them apart, but when all seems lost Miss Cooper comes to the rescue.

    All & Sundry’s production is faithful to the original plot which was considered too much for 1950’s taste at the time this wonderful drama was written.
