Hysteria comes with quite a reputation. Penned by an acclaimed comic wordsmith, showered with praise by ecstatic critics on its original production and the recipient of an Olivier for Best New Comedy in 1994, any new staging has a lot to live up to.

The Russian State Ballet of Siberia returned to Ipswich’s Regent Theatre last night with a sparkling and enchanting presentation of La Fille Mal Gardee, a chaming comic ballet in two acts.

LipService take us on a witty, clever and ingenious journey with Pride and Prejudice’s Mr Darcy. Deliciously irreverant, the world of the female writer is deconstructed in a hilarious pastiche mash up.

Classical Indian dance and hip hop is combined in a new work at the DanceHouse in Ipswich. Arts editor Andrew Clarke found out more

Rudyard Kipling’s book was given the Oddsocks Treatment and it was fantastic to see what they could do with some instruments, small jungle set and five people; transporting the audience into the heat of the Indian jungle for fun and laughter.

Showstopper!: The Improvised Musical, the Olivier-winning show which wowed both London’s West End and the Edinburgh Fringe, is arriving at the New Wolsey Theatre this weekend and is looking for lots of audience participation.

The Olivier-winning farce Hysteria about the meeting of Sigmund Freud and surreal artist Salvador Dali in Hampstead in 1938 is being staged at the Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds and the Colchester Mercury as part of a nationwide tour.

A founder of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, creator of Basil Fawlty and an integral part of such groundbreaking comedy series as I’m Sorry, I’ll Read That Again and The Frost Report, you would expect him to be basking in the sun on some comedy equivalent of Mount Olympus consuming ambrosia off the belly of a woodland nymph.

A new interactive drama production is to be toured around Ipswich schools this autumn in a bid to empower young people to make positive choices around illegal drugs.
