  • Gary Meikle: Surreal

    26 October 2021 8:00pm – 9:50pm

    After his meteoric rise through the ranks, Scottish Comedy Award winner and viral sensation Gary Meikle is back with his second tour show, Surreal! A word that perfectly describes Gary’s last twelve months. He started the year performing in comedy clubs, and ended it selling out big theatres in the UK as well as tours in America, Canada and Europe!

    Not one for mincing his words, Gary has been described as “playfully dark”. His cheeky chappie nature and ability to get away with talking about anything will have you laughing at things you probably shouldn’t be! As always, Gary will draw material from his own real-life experiences, including his unique family dynamic and his rapid rise to online fame. Quickly putting his audiences at ease, a night of stand up with Gary feels like a night in the pub chatting with friends!

    Having performed to tens of thousands of people over the past year, Gary has found a new confidence and level of openness on stage, meaning he doesn’t hold back on giving his opinions, no matter how warped! The new show will cover topics such as evolution, social media, how to deal with burglars, single mums, bee sex, small man syndrome and much more. Gary is a fast paced, punchy storyteller that finds the funny in anything!

    Age Guidence 16+
    Gary Meikle at The Old Rep on 26 June 2021 has been rescheduled to Tuesday 26 October 2021. Your ticket will be honoured for the rescheduled date.

  • A Christmas Carol

    04 November 2021 All Day

    “Christmas? A poor excuse for picking a man’s pocket every twenty-fifth of December!” exclaims Ebenezer Scrooge in the opening stave of A Christmas Carol.

    It’s also an excuse for the Dickens Theatre Company to bring you their joyously authentic staging of this Victorian classic to The Old Rep.

    Two of Dickens’ closest theatrical companions find themselves trapped in the footlights’ glare. With the rest of the cast stuck on a train, actress Frances Ternan and Dickens’ faithful tour manager George Dolby take on the daunting challenge of portraying over 30 characters. But, who will play Scrooge?

    School performances: Tuesday 2 November (11am & 1pm), Wednesday 3 November (11am & 1pm) and Thursday 4 November (11am)
    Recommended age 8+
