BILLED as Bridget Jones 30 years on, Pulling Faces comes to The Berry Theatre tonight.

In the monologue play, Louise Jameson plays Joanne Taylor, a former TV Diva who is on the verge of her 55th birthday, seriously single, ‘hot-flushing’ and about to make some drastic changes in her life.

Louise plays 12 different characters and has reached a critical point in her life. Should she go under the knife to enhance her looks, or to hell with it, go on a date with her toy boy?

Pulling Faces is an acerbic, topical comedy about society’s obsession with youth, beauty and transformation. IT’S your last chance to see Cameron Mackintosh’s spectacular new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s phenomenal musical success The Phantom of the Opera, which continues for another week at The Mayflower.

The production stars Earl Carpenter and Katie Hall.

Far beneath the majesty and splendour of the Paris Opera House, hides the Phantom in a shadowy existence.

Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, the love he holds for his beautiful protégée Christine Daaé is so strong that even her heart cannot resist. GOD of Carnage, featuring award-winning actor and Stars in their Eyes presenter Matthew Kelly and celebrated actress Tracey Childs, graces the Nuffield stage until Saturday February 23.

It tells the story of two sets of parents as they meet up to discuss the behaviour of their unruly children.

What should be a rational conversation between adults turns into a hysterical night of tears, tantrums and name-calling.
