November Newsletter

27 Oct 2023

Coming up in November

Welcome to those of who you have signed up to this newsletter in the past month, and welcome back to those of you who joined for our October newsletter.


Hopefully you've been enjoying the many theatrical treats Hastings has to offer over the last few weeks, and are chomping at the proverbial bit for more in November.


Remember, if you want to feature your theatre news or events in the newsletter, visit this page ahead of the last Friday of the month and we'll do our best to include it.

First up, a shout-out to Halloween and Christmas storytime at the Mini Playhouse on 29th October and 26th November respectively. Both are run by Nightingale Music, and offer interactive, musical sessions for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.

At The Stables, as well as last month's pick Doubt, A Parable (which kicks off tonight - tickets here), there are a whole host of one-nighters to choose from.


On 14th November, to see out the end of spooky season, you can catch The Ghost of a Smile, Gavin Robertson's adaptation of two Dickens ghost stories. Performed by Nicholas Collett, the show promises to be "like The Woman in Black, but funnier".


Later that week, on 18th November, the acclaimed Howerd's End comes to town, telling the story of Frankie Howerd and Dennis Heymer. The following day, you can catch Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope. These two plays about twentieth-century gay icons are written by Mark Farrelly, and if you book for both there are reduced ticket prices.

There's an old story about an American tourist in London who, during his trip, gets picked up by a black cab driver, dropped at his destination, but doesn't tip. Later the same day, he gets picked up again by the same driver, taken across the river, but again fails to tip. Finally, that evening, he gets picked up one last time. "Where are we going?" says the driver, grumpily. "I have tickets to see The Mousetrap," replies the arrogant tourist. They trundle through theatreland, arrive at St Martin's Theatre, where the play is showing, and the American gets out. The cab driver, furious at this point for still not receiving a tip, tells his passenger the name of the murderer.


So, if you're going to see The Mousetrap at the White Rock Theatre (27 Nov - 2 Dec) and taking a cab to get there, make sure you tip your driver.

And that's it for November, and our second HTP newsletter! December is sure to be a bumper newsletter, so be sure to tell your friends to sign up by the 24th November to hear about the festivities.
