Luna Theatre presents
Swansea Grand Theatre
Thurs 20  Sat 22 April 7.45pm The up and coming Luna Theatre company presents Earthquakes in London by Mike Bartlett at Swansea Grand Theatre’s Arts Wing from Thursday 20th to Saturday 22nd April in at 7.45pm.

Earthquakes in London is an account of life, love and profound unease in the present day. It will take you on a colourful exhilarating ride through a familiar yet uneasy landscape.

Mike Bartlett's play tells the story of three sisters and their misanthropic father, in search of purpose and meaning in a climate they feel out of touch with and are overwhelmed by a sense of pending apocalypse.

Despite the dark undertones of the play it ruptures with joy and exuberance.
It is a marathon run like a sprint, with music, dance and animation.

Earthquakes in London is Luna Theatre’s second full length production after their successful debut, Female Transport, in 2016.

The company was founded by artistic director Michael Aubin to provide exciting performance opportunities to anyone who wants to explore theatre and drama. Its aim is to establish a dynamic theatrical culture in the community and invigorate excitement in theatre goers.

Tickets for this thought-provoking piece of theatre are available from the Box Office on 01792 475715 or can be purchased online at and are £10.50*
* All tickets include a 50p Restoration Fund contribution. Online booking fee applies.

Swansea Grand Theatre
Monday 5th June 7.30pm

The producers of The All-Star Stand-Up Tour (16+) at Swansea Grand Theatre on Monday 5th June 7.30pm have announced a change of line-up due to comedian Jim Tavare being involved in a near fatal car crash in his home city of Los Angeles on March 6th.

Jim is on the mend having spent fifteen days in intensive care, suffering severe injuries caused by multiple broken bones and two collapsed lungs. Plans are being put in place for him to appear on the 2018 All-Star Stand-Up Tour instead.

Jim said, “During the accident, my hand ligaments completely detached from my wrist. The surgeons that put it back together say that I won’t ever be able to play the bass again, but I am determined to prove them wrong. I look forward to seeing you all for the 2018 tour”.

For 2017’s run he will be replaced by Mike Gunn. Mike has been seen on BBC 1’s ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’ and supported Lee Mack on tour. He has been described as one of the “…10 leading stand-ups in Britain’ by The Independent and The Guardian said “Mike Gunn will make you die laughing”, which seems inappropriate given Jim’s situation. Mike said of joining the tour “I can’t wait to get on the road with the rest of the team, and it just proves every cloud really has a silver lining”.

Mike will join Canadian one- liner king and star of Mock the Week, Stewart Francis, Justin Moorhouse from Phoenix Nights and 8 out of 10 Cats and compère, Jarred Christmas.

When it was made clear Jim couldn’t be part of this year’s tour, Mike offered his services almost immediately, some would say suspiciously so. As such, if anyone can confirm Mike’s whereabouts on March 6th please contact

Tickets for this evening of original comedy are available from the Box Office on 01792 475715 or can be purchased online at and are £20.50*
*All tickets include ab50p Restoration Fund contribution. Online fee apples.
