Adrian Poynton: Ashes

Rotunda Theatre Tunbridge Wells: Squeak

Recently, I’ve been thinking of a thing.

It’s a collection of stories about some stuff that happen. Stuff that plays on my mind.

Exciting huh.

In a nutshell, my Dad scattered my mums ashes without me.

I'm an only child.

So... yeah. That happened.

Anyway... I started thinking I’d maybe turn them into a funny film or a play or something, like I normally do. For other people to read and perform.

But recently I’ve realised that these are my stories to tell.

So... please come join me as I bumble through them on stage, laugh a lot, cry a bit , laugh some more and — hopefully — make you do the same.

Life affirming comedy from the award winning writer and creator of BBC Three’s WHITE VAN MAN, returning to the stage for the first time in over a decade.

Adrian is also known for his award winning play 'A Very Naughty Boy' about the working relationship of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman and John Cleese which sold out every night at the Edinburgh fringe and toured the UK before a month long run at London’s Soho Theatre to huge critical acclaim. He has also written for Sky One’s 'Trollied' and scripts for Big Finish’s Doctor Who range staring Tom Baker and David Tennant

As a stand up Adrian has performed all over the world with both his acclaimed solo shows and tour supporting some of the UK’s most famous faces. Having stepped away from stand up to focus on his hugely successful screenwriting career, 2024 sees Adrian return to the stage with his most honest, personal, hilarious and heartbreaking of shows.
