Fake Thackray – An Evening Without Jake Thackray

Jake Thackray’s songs are exquisitely funny, satirical, incisive, irreverent, witty and gloriously un-PC – and sometimes all of these at the same time.  John Watterson (Fake Thackray) has performed Jake’s songs at venues across the UK and on local and national radio – most recently on Radio 4s ‘Great Lives’.  John has supported Fairport Convention on their 6-week nationwide tour, achieved several 4 star reviews for his extended run at Edinburgh Festival, and has received accolades from many of Jake’s friends and contemporaries, including Ralph McTell, Richard Digance, Mike Harding and Sir Richard Stilgoe.

The 40th Anniversary of the Plough Arts Centre. Plough Supporters are welcome to join Council of Management, staff,  volunteers and Business Supporters for a celebratory drink in the gallery at 7pm prior to the performance at 8pm.

“Long may John continue to keep Jake’s memory alive so affectionately and skilfully, and introduce more people to one of the most remarkable talents I ever met.” - Sir Richard Stilgoe

Acclaimed playwright Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love, Arcadia, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead) returns to the National Theatre with his highly-anticipated new play The Hard Problem, directed by Nicholas Hytner (Othello, Hamlet, One Man, Two Guvnors).

Hilary, a young psychology researcher at a brain science institute, is nursing a private sorrow and a troubling question at work, where psychology and biology meet. If there is nothing but matter, what is consciousness? This is ‘the hard problem’ which puts Hilary at odds with her colleagues who include her first mentor Spike, her boss Leo and the billionaire founder of the institute, Jerry. Is the day coming when the computer and the MRI scanner will answer all the questions psychology can ask? Meanwhile Hilary needs a miracle, and she is prepared to pray for one.
