What’s On Aberystwyth This Week: Mutt, Festival of the Spoken Nerd, Joe Stilgoe

Festival Of The Spoken Nerd: 8:00pm, 5th November 

Following their appearance at this year’s Fringe, TV stars Helen Amery (Coast) Steve Mould (Britain’s Brightest)  and Matt Parker (You Have Been Warned) combine maths, science and standup in their show Just For Graphs. Were you left heartbroken and inspired by the adventures of the Philae lander? Have you ever been turned into a live audio cable? Have you ever seen maths so hot it literally catches fire?

Just for Graphs will be packed with electrifying live experiments and statistically significant laughter but will the “Nerds” stay on-trend, or lose the plot completely?

Rated 14+ for strong language and graphic material!

Mutt: 6th November, 7:45pm, Aberystwyth Arts Centre

Returning to Aberystwyth following the successful run of Winona earlier this year, playwright Christopher T. Harris brings his new work to the Arts Centre this Friday with Mutt. 

Darren hates nothing more than his own home. Cwm is a black hole. He hates the typically-Welsh rainy afternoons, football alone in the dark after school. Most of all, he hates how the dogs dominate his own parents’ household.

Mutt is the new play by acclaimed writer Christopher T. Harris, a play about strained relations, violence and forgiveness.  

Aber graduate Harris’ script is directed by Anna Sherratt, and produced by the Abandoned Theatre Co.

Joe Stilgoe: 11th November, 8:00pm, Aberystwyth Arts Centre

Jazz chart-topper and renaissance man Joe Stilgoe brings tracks from his new album, New Songs For Old Souls, to Aberystwyth next Wednesday. A sell-out hit at the Fringe and fielding glowing reviews in the national press, Stilgoe’s other appearances include a stint in Kevin Spacey’s High Society at the Old Vic, and Friday Night is Music Night on BBC Radio 2.

Stay tuned to ASM for an interview with Joe, and a competition for tickets to his show!
