Mark Thomas: Cuckooed- Both Dates Sold Out

Please Note: Both dates are now sold out. Please contact the Box Office if you wish to be added to the waiting list on 0115 846 7777. Written and performed by Mark Thomas Director: Emma Callander Running Time Approximately 110 minutes including interval A comedy of betrayal. Mark Thomas tells his true story of how Britain's biggest arms manufacturer (BAE Systems) came to spy on a comedian. A tale of hubris, planes, demos and undercover deceit told by an award-winning performer. This is a personal and timely tale that tries to unearth what it means to be spied upon by a corporation under the sanction of the state. As usual, plenty of laughs, some weird characters, documentary styles, probably a tear or two and the vague possibility that Mark might get beaten up in the making of it as he tries to find out if he wants revenge or if he can forgive a friend.
