Litfest presents: Xanthe Gresham – Hecate Tango and Isis Is-You-Sis
One storyteller, two goddesses and a midlife crisis. This double bill of roller coaster performances teeters between the sharply hilarious and the devastatingly provocative. The last in the Chasing Tales series.

Hecate Tango: How do you cure an addiction to sex? How do you crack your soul’s pin code? Hecate has the answers. She was chucked off Mount Olympus for refusing to hail Zeus as the one and only. Now she sits in outer space doing cosmic sudoku on our behalf.

Isis Is-U-Sis: If you’ve ever done online dating, set fire to the curtains burning relics of a recent love or generally lost your golden lotus, then Isis Is You Sis. Combining the comic moments of breaking up with the Egyptian myth of Isis and Osiris, Isis Is-You-Sis will make you want to throw your arms towards the dawn.

Tickets: £8.50 (concessions £7.00). £1.00 discount for advance bookings. Series discount: see all four shows for the price of three – call The Dukes Theatre box office on 01524 380062.
Box office: telephone 01524 582394 or book online.

Litfest Lunchtime Classics: Peter Sampson on Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens (1812 – 1870) was arguably the greatest English novelist of the nineteenth century and certainly the most popular. He is an author much associated with Christmas but his appeal extends far beyond the festive season – his great novels are panoramic works, addressing every level of English society. His satirical eye expertly pinpoints a wide range of characters and picks out in clear detail the social pressures of his age.

Tickets: £4.00 (concessions £2.00).
Box Office: telephone 01524 582394 or book online.
