“Evocative and haunting, distilled and poignant but ultimately uplifting. A honed and crafted clever piece of theatre.”
“de Deney’s latest performance combines poetry and virtuoso storytelling to create a poignant revisiting of the themes of war, love and loss.”
Join us at St Barnabas at 7.30pm on Saturday 30th January to watch ‘Between The Lines’, a passionate one man play about the war to end all wars written and performed by Simon de Deney (50mins).
A keeper of the graves in an old war cemetery is compelled to unravel a 100 year mystery. The play follows an underage soldier’s journey through the First World War as he struggles to deal with the impact of his choices on the people he loves most and his own sense of betrayal.
Tickets are available to purchase on the door for £10 (concessions available).

‘I am Music, who in sweet accents can calm each troubled heart, and now with noble anger, now with love, can kindle the most frigid minds’
So wrote Alessandro Striggio in his libretto to Monteverdi’s Orfeo, the Prologue of which begins this concert. Spanish and Latin American music, including Piazzolla’s stirring Libertango and folk songs are juxtaposed with Bach’s sublime Adagio from the Concerto for Oboe and Violin and other music of the 17th and 18th centuries. Poet Peter Brennan reads from his own work and that of other poets who contemplate the guises in which music calls out to all of us.
The concert will be followed by a glass of wine. Admission at the door £10, concessions £8.
Please join us this Saturday for Messy Church. All are welcome, and it is an opportunity for people of all ages to worship together.
