Since then she has toured throughout the UK, Europe and New Zealand as a solo artist, with The Claire Hastings Band and Top Floor Taivers, and has shared the stage with the likes of Lulu, Jamie Cullum, Deacon Blue and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

JUNE 2019

Two Acts, Two Courses - School Reunion

Two acts, two courses: School Reunion

Friday 21st & Saturday 22nd June 7:00pm

Two acts, two courses is back and this time we’re championing new writing. Two up-and-coming playwrights, Chloe Frampton and Jacob Kay will be presenting their new work for you. Please come and support these emerging talents and help us promote new artistic work in the city of Lincoln.

The Acts

Act 1: Cattle, by Jacob Kay. Mona’s job isn’t glamorous. In fact it’s boring. Mind-numbingly boring.Her duties are just general housekeeping, along with the odd message she receives from the mail chute. The only thing she can do is make sure the cages are clean, and that the people house within are seen to... To Mona, this is standard. That is until the people begin to act strangely. Is her job as boring as she first thought?

Act 2: Lilac Line, by Chloe Frampton. Aubrey and Maggie have spent almost a lifetime travelling together on the same exact route. It’s where they’ve laughed, where they’ve cried, where their lives have grown and where the majority of their conversations have begun and then restarted the very next day. As their lives move in different directions, asking them to take on a whole new journey...what will be left of their friendship and what will be lost?

The Courses

Main: Stuffed chicken breast wrapped in parma ham with a white wine and cream sauce, served with new potatoes and seasonal vegetables or Mixed bean cassoulet with garlic bread (Vegetarian/Vegan)

Dessert: Banoffee pie with vanilla ice cream or Vegan brownie with raspberry sorbet (Vegetarian/Vegan), with coffee and tea to follow.

The Importance of Being Earnest

Thursday 18th July - Saturday 20th July 7:30pm
Saturday 20th July 2:00pm

The Asylum Players presents: The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde.

A Trivial Comedy for Serious People. Oscar Wilde’s renowned, timeless comedy follows Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieffe as they attempt to win the hearts of the worldly Gwendolen Fairfax and the romantically inclined Cecily Cardew.

Two Acts, Two Courses - Blackadder goes forth

Two acts, two courses: Blackadder Goes Forth
By Ben Elton, Richard Curtis and the BBC

Friday 16th & Saturday 17th August 7:00pm

Act 1: Captain Cook and Major Star. The Somme 1917. General Meltchett cordially invites you to a mass slaughter, otherwise known as “The Big Push.” Captain Blackadder has every intention of RSVPing “no,” but needs a good excuse. Cooking by Baldrick or a Talent Show with George seem to be the obvious ways. Fool-proof...right?

Act 2: General Hospital and Goodbyeee. There’s a spy in the hospital and it’s Blackadder’s job to “winkle” him out. Armed with a rabid Cocker-spaniel and a potty, the Somme’s answer to 007 heads off to catch his man. Of course, if that fails to get him out of the trenches, there’s always that wonderful prospect of the “Big Push,” they’ve all been soooo looking forward to...

The Courses

Main: Beef Stroganoff with Rice and Seasonal Vegetables or Ratatouille (Vegetarian/Vegan)

Dessert: Plum Tart with Vanilla Ice-Cream or Poached Pear with Raspberry Sorbet (Vegetarian/Vegan), with coffee and tea to follow.

Tickets: 30.00, including a two-course meal. Call 01522 523 548 to book now.


The Crucible

The Crucible

Thursday 14th November - Saturday 16th November 7:30pm
Saturday 16th November 2:00pm

The Asylum Players presents: The Crucible by Arthur Miller.

Witch Hunts and Fake News, ring any bells? Arthur Miller’s classic story of the power of mob rule and false belief. Set in Salem 1692, we watch the tragedy of the Witch Hunts that devastated the community and took the lives of many innocent people. Written by Miller, in response to the insanity of 1950s McCarthyism, this is a story that becomes alarmingly more relevant with every passing day and every badly spelt Tweet.

Rehearsal Space: The Blue Room is available to hire as an affordable rehearsal space for artistic groups.

Function Space: The Blue Room has been designed to have multiple uses, from a small theatre to a dinner dance venue, from a recital hall to a cinema, from an unusual conference setting to a stunning wedding venue, with catering & refreshments all provided in house from Stokes of Lincoln.

Flexibility: If you have an idea, come and talk to us. Using an adaptable lighting and staging system, The Blue Room will let you field productions and events the way you want. An in-room bar and an on-site cafe/restaurant allow for an even greater variety of events to be booked and staged.

Technical: A bank of local freelance technicians, trained on the venue’s system, are available to hire for your event. This allows flexibility and security for hirers. We also offer training days on the venue's systems for interested freelancers.
