MARK THOMAS RETURNS TO SHERMAN THEATRE WITH HIS NEW SHOW - SHOWTIME FROM THE FRONTLINE     

MARK THOMAS RETURNS TO SHERMAN THEATRE WITH HIS NEW SHOW - SHOWTIME FROM THE FRONTLINE Dodging cultural and literal bullets, Israeli incursions and religion, Mark Thomas and his team set out to run a comedy club for two nights in the Palestinian city of Jenin. Only to find it’s not so simple to celebrate freedom of speech in a place with so little freedom.

Jenin refugee camp is home to Jenin Freedom Theatre and to people with a wealth of stories to tell. Mark alongside two of its actors and aspiring comics, Faisal Abu Alhayjaa and Alaa Shehada tell a story about being yourself in a place that wants to put you in a box.

With sell-out shows, non-stop awards, the highest critical acclaim, his own TV and radio shows, numerous documentaries, published books, Guinness World Records, influencing changes in the law, creating manifestos and exposing arms trade dealers, it’s no wonder that Mark is one of the UK’s most recognised performers and influential activists.

Showtime from the Frontline comes to Sherman Theatre on Wed 21 Feb, 7.30pm. Tickets are £20 (£15 for Concessions), to book call the Box Office on 029 2064 6900 or online at shermantheatre.co.uk. Please note the Sherman Theatre foyer is closed during January so it will not be possible to purchase tickets in person during this time.
