Comedian Dara O’Briain returns to the Ipswich Regent next year with his new show Voice of Reason.

The Mock The Week host is no stranger to Suffolk, having wowed audiences in the town in 2015 he starring at Latitude this summer.

We described his last tour, Crowd Tickler, as fast, funny and often insightful and Dara himself as a force of nature when not chained to his many panel show host desks.

He will be here on March 29. Tickets go on sale to ticket alert subscribers at 10am tomorrow and general sale from 10am Friday.

He’s one of several top comedians heading to the Regent and Corn Exchange over the coming months.

Other acts include Griff Rhys Jones, October 26; Milton Jones, November 10; Rob Brydon, November 15; Russell Brand, December 4, Greg Davis, December 5-6; Jim Davidson, January 21, Ed Byrne, February 7; Jason Manford, February 15; Joe Lycett, April 7 and Sarah Millican, June 28-30.

Oxy and the Morons, by Paul Sirett, Mike Peters and Steve Allan Jones, New Wolsey Theatre, until October 21

From Co-Op Juniors productions and Linda Shipton’s School of Dancing to the Royal Ballet the professional dancer has come a long way. Now she is back with the latest tour by Rambert Dance Company.

The New Wolsey Theatre has a reputation for putting lots of great music in their shows. But, as Arts editor Andrew Clarke, discovers with Oxy and the Morons they are looking at whether the punk spirit can survive into middle age.

When foreign language plays are translated for the stage they usually end up as starchy period pieces with cut-glass accents. Arts editor Andrew Clarke spoke to writer Blake Morrison about making the classics much more egalitarian.

Far From The Madding Crowd is a Victorian classic but as David Henshall finds out a new stage version written by Olivier-award-winng Jessica Swale reveals it to be a story filled with surprisingly contemporary characters

Strictly Come Dancing’s Joanne Clifton will reprise her star role in Flashdance - The Musical when it comes to the Ipswich Regent next April.

It seems that the era of the long-running West End show is coming to an end. The trend is now for short-term engagements which, Arts editor Andrew Clarke says, is a good thing for our cultural economy and offers greater opportunities for new work

A former Suffolk schoolboy is set to take the stage for a nationwide touring production of Shrek the Musical.

Comedian Daniel Sloss doesn’t think he’s a sociopath, but he’s called one a lot. Latest show NOW is basically him asking if people are right.
