As a performing arts venue, we rely heavily on income from ticket sales, venue hire bookings and overall visitation to the precinct. The prospect of cancelling multiple shows will have a significant impact on the organisation.

Following his five-star Olivier-nominated hit My Family: Not The Sitcom, and the return to number 1 of his seminal football anthem Three Lions, David Baddiel comes back to the stage with a brand new one-man show, Trolls: Not The Dolls.

Trolls – the terrible people who spend all day insulting and abusing strangers for no other reason than to fill the huge gaps in their souls. There is a common wisdom about how to deal with trolls; don’t, for goodness sake, encourage these people by replying to them.

It’s a good law. And it’s one that David Baddiel has consistently broken. Because David has always seen trolls as hecklers, and if a comedian gets heckled, it is their duty not to ignore the heckler, but to wittily put them down.

Over the years, David has spent a lot of time doing this, which has led him to think that there might be a show in it; a show that would say something about how we live now.
