COMING SOON AT THE SPREAD EAGLE
Tell Me About Your Ex
Tickets: £10 - Dates: 9th - 10th September 7.30pm
Tell Me About Your Ex is an exciting, brand new theatrical experience where the audience is the author! Funny, scary, sad and uplifting, this is a play for everyone who has been in love - or still is.
Tell Me About Your Ex is a new play from the Old Joint Stock Theatre, made up entirely of stories from you! For the next few months, we'll be asking the Birmingham public to send us tales from their past relationships, and in September we will be presenting them through song, theatre and storytelling.
The best submissions will come together to form our play, and all the stories we've received will be displayed in an exhibition in the theatre foyer of the Old Joint Stock during the production. What's more, each night's audience will be invited to fill in their own cards. These new stories will feed into the show during the production week, so it will be a different show every night!
An Old Joint Stock Theatre production, developed by Birmingham-based writer Tim Jefferies and directed by Robert Ball.
Want to submit a story?
It could be funny, sad, bitter; feel free to share an huge six page story or a one line anecdote. It's all completely anonymous - no subject is off limits and any experience is worth sharing.

Albert Einstein: Relativitively Speaking
Tickets: £10 - Dates: 12th - 15th November 7.30pm
Join Albert, the genius behind the übercoolest moustache in science, for a lecture like none you’ve ever attended. The eccentric theoretical physicist is accompanied by his two wives and mum on the piano, and by guest rapper MC Squared, as he quantum leaps us through two world wars, two theories of relativity, and the deployment of two very big bombs.
Warning: features the wurst sausage joke ever.
'The clearest – and certainly the funniest – explanation of the Theory of Relativity I know.' John Lloyd (creator of QI)
'Here’s a treasure.' 5 STARS The Times
'Hinton expertly makes the most complicated of concepts easily intelligible...This really is delightful and comes strongly recommended.' 5 STARS British Theatre Guide
'This man can really work an audience...We're convulsed in laughter and then very quickly we're almost in tears. Hinton gave us the complete Einstein - the emotional lover and husband, the analytical theoretician, the moralist, the philosopher.' Fringe Review
'Something close to brilliance.' 5 STARS The Times
